Excuses are a dime a dozen.
Don’t ya hate old expressions like that?
True, though …
Even though good health is the most important thing there is, in my humble opinion, many people take it for granted. A lot of people don’t decide to start taking care of their health until something goes wrong.
Know what I mean?
Life gets in the way, and that is understandable in today’s busy world, but, really, when you get right down to it, what is more important than being healthy?
I mean, c’mon, good health makes everything else possible, doesn’t it?
One of the most common excuses for not getting enough — or any — exercise is, “I don’t have time.”
Let’s see …
How much time do you spend watching TV?
How much time do you spend on social media?
How much time sitting in front of the computer?
Playing video games?
Look, the day is always going to be 24 hours long. They’re not making any more time.
When you get right down to it, it’s simple.
You have to make a decision.
Is your health going to be a priority or is it not?
That’s all there is to it.
If you want something badly enough — if it’s important enough to you — you will find the time for it.
At a minimum, the recommended amount of exercise for good health is 150 minutes a week of moderate exercise.
You don’t necessarily have to go out, join a gym, spend hours and hours in there on a treadmill, or elliptical machine, lifting weights, doing aerobics, yoga, whatever. Go for a 30-minute walk, five times a week.
Surely, you can carve out 30 minutes to go for a nice, brisk walk around the neighborhood.
I promise you this …
You’re going to feel better.
