You are the 21st century archetype: a busy worker with little time to exercise
In the back of your head you know you need to be getting at least 2.5 hours of exercise a week. At Family Chiropractic & Natural Healing Center, we think it is time to modernize your fitness mentality.
Think of 2.5 hours as 150 minutes and realize that you can hit this goal 2 minutes at a time, in 10 minute increments, 30 minute bursts or an hour at a time; it is completely customizable.
Addressing the, "too busy, no time," conundrum
With no plan, there is every likelihood that you won't exercise- the brain craves routine, so we need to find a way to add workout into our daily schedule. But how?
- By making exercise a priority: on a piece of paper, write down a schedule that includes workout in some form and see if you can discipline yourself to stick with it.
- Exercise at your desk: be sneaky about your exercise- many body-weight exercises and stretches can be performed within your desk space.
- Exercise efficiently: during commercial breaks on television or waiting at the bus stop. Realize that small chunks of minutes slip by all the time, presenting you with the opportunity to remain inactive or do a little bit for your body at a time.
- Choose activities you like: do you secretly like swimming?; do you thrive in a competitive sport environment? Because your brain likes the activity, you become invested in improvement and thus stick with it.
