4 Awesome Ways To Make Time For A Workout
You hear people say all the time, “I would love to work out, I just don’t have the time!” The thing is, we don’t buy it. Out of 24 hours in a day and 7 days in a week, I think you have to be looking for ways not to have time to squeeze a one-hour workout in three times a week. We’re thinking you will never find time – you have to make time for the things you want. So, don’t compro- mise what you want most for what you want now.
1) Get Up Early
What time are you get- ting up now, 7:30? Wake up an hour earlier and reap the benefits of an early morning run. Stud- ies show that raising your heart rate early in the morning gives you a rush of endorphins which will lighten your mood
all day! Bonus: Once you get home from work this evening, you won’t feel guilty all night while you hang out watching American Idol.
2) Lunch Break
From 12-1 everyday, you can make the commit- ment that this is your workout time and it won’t be messed with. You might be surprised how supportive your co-work- ers are over this decision. Within a few short weeks, if they see you in the of- fice during those hours, they will notice and com- ment wondering why you aren’t at the gym!
3) After Work
Are you finding your- self getting home and watching the Kardashi- ans or Survivor? Can the reality TV and spend some time getting a great strength training sesh in. Chalean Ex- treme or Shawn T will be calling your name before you know it and your body will crave the sweet feeling of SORE as you head to bed each night.
4) Girls Night
Instead of heading out for a beer (or cosmos), get the girls together and spend your qual-
ity time on a run or in
a yoga studio! Stud-
ies show that working out together builds a stronger bond in friend- ship and builds account- ability. Bonus – You
can lean on each other when you are thinking about bowing out!
