Making Time To Exercise

May 12, 2008
Most of us are masters at not finding time for exercise! Whether it is a sub conscious block or a jinxed activity, we simply can't seem to fit in the exercise schedule in our daily routine. Exercising is great activity that had to be followed in order to reap the benefits. Now how do you make time for exercising amidst the already overflowing schedule?

1. Firstly, you should understand the importance and appreciate the benefits of exercising and weight loss. You should understand why it should be a priority in our life.

2. Understanding alone will not help. You should make it a priority. Be serious about allocating time for the activity, it's important.

3. Make it a routine. Finding time does not mean you stuff in exercising in all the nooks and crannies of your schedule. Instead allocate a specific time, your exercise time, which you will follow every day. This way it becomes an integrated part of your schedule and becomes a routine and eventually a habit which you won't be able to do away with!

4. If you can allocate the time in the mornings, it's great! It's good for health to exercise in the mornings; also you won't be interrupting your day's schedule in any way. Mornings are usually characterized with less interruptions and distractions!

5. Getting up early in the morning to exercise will give you extra time.

6. A study states that, 16 hours is the time spent per week by an average adult on watching television! So if you're the couch potato soccer watching type, watch soccer while you're on the treadmill. It adds to the action! You have two options; you either spend less time on TV or use it for exercising. Or you watch TV while you exercise. If you are following the latter don't get involved too much in the TV programs and reduce the intensity of your exercises. Do it with the same vigor.

7. Try to exercise for at least half an hour during the lunch break.

8. If you are catching up with an old friend or spending quality time with your spouse talking, what best than taking a walk around the neighborhood? Take a walk instead of sitting indoors. It is bound to be refreshing.

9. Review the time you spend exercising every day. You will know if you are spending enough time and rework the schedule if necessary. This way you can efficiently make time for other things too.

10. Make exercise a fun activity. That way you will want to do it often. Having an exercise partner is a great way to make it interesting. There will be healthy competition as well as motivation to exercise.

These are a few way by which you can make exercising a routine which you will look forward to. Exercising is a great way to stay fit. Making time for this activity is essential. So get started and have a great time toning your body!
