Four percent of your day can change your body in mere months. One hour of your day is all it takes to get you fit. A few tiny changes in your day are all that is needed to squeeze in a workout. Here are five tips for making time for exercise:
1) Turn off the tube: Television can be a distracting force. If you want to get back on track with your fitness plans DVR that favorite show of yours and put your running shoes on. A 30 minute walk can make a difference in your health.
2)Rearrange your sleep: A few days a week, get to sleep earlier and set your alarm clock an hour earlier. That will give you an opportunity to get your day started out right with a workout. On non-workout days, use the extra time to sleep longer. Sleep is also very important for your health.
3) Make it a family affair: We are all very busy and we try really hard to make time for family. What if your quality family time involves activity? If you go on hikes or walks together that quality time can help everyone get in shape and stay healthy.
4) Take it outside: Pack your dinner and go make it a picnic! If you live in Florida, this is the perfect time to get outdoors. Pack that dinner and eat it outside. When you’re done with dinner, play with a ball, a frisbee or rackets. Once you’re outdoors getting active is much easier.
5) Schedule it: You rarely miss that staff meeting or that event at your child’s school but somehow you miss your workout almost every time. This is about commitment. Make the commitment to stick to your fitness routine and you’re bound to be successful in meeting your goals.
