One of the main excuses I used in the past was that I simply did not have the time to exercise. In reality most of us lead hectic lives with busy schedules and even with the best of intensions we struggle to find time to exercise. If you find you can’t find the time to exercise try fitting it in to your daily routine by walking or running part or even all of the way to work. Another great strategy is to buy an exercise DVD that can fit into your schedule. Although DVD’s require you to have more motivation because you are in the comforts of our own home, you can help keep your motivation high by placing it in your diary and treating the entry as a deadline. It is helpful to then set an alarm to remind you when to begin your work out.
