Tip#11 for Today
I don't have time to exercise! Or I'm too tired by the time I get home! Sound familiar? This is the number 11 challenge experienced by my clients in 2022. Super common and relatively easy to fix with a little discipline and planning.
Remember, it's what you do, not what you don't, that counts. A five-minute walk is better than none. Going to the gym once a week is better than never.
Fitting in time to exercise during the pockets of your life when you're not being super productive is helpful. So you don't need extra time - you're swapping out unproductive time for exercise time.
A short walk after dinner, or a home workout dance, even if you're tired, might perk you up for better conversations that evening. It could help you be more present with yourself, your partner and your kids.
Taking the stairs instead of the lift once a day will help get your heart rate up. Celebrate anything that you do and watch your mindset change. Feeling defeated by your lack of time will not fix your problem. Tell yourself: there's always a way I can do something a little differently.
Also, do a type of exercise that you actually enjoy doing. If you hate the gym, don't go. Perhaps going rock climbing is more your cup of tea, because it's exercise that happens because of you wanting to get to the top of a cliff!
Another little trick is to attach the habit to something you are already doing. For example, I do my physio exercises while doing my vocal warm-ups. And my partner does squats while waiting for the kettle to boil. Double win!
