What are you willing to give up for exercise? Sounds like a crazy question. In our busy lives, it is hard to think of giving something up just so you can exercise. Blech! I like the idea of giving up something for sleep, but exercise??? Alas, we all know we need to do it. Exercise is key to achieving a healthy weight. Extending our mortality. Managing stress. Staving off diabetes. Heart disease. Alzheimers. Cancer. These are the devils chasing us, we gotta stay ahead of them…
The current American College of Sports Medicine recommendation for the healthy amount of exercise is 30 minutes on 5 days per week. That amounts to 150 minutes or 2 1/2 hours per week! Seems like a lot…or does it? An entire week is 168 hours, meaning that exercise should account for only about 1.5% of your week.
Can you spare it?
Can you afford not to?
To free up the time we have to pare back on something else in our lives. But what? I want to hear from you! In the comments section, answer me this…
If you are currently exercising, what do you give up to make the time?
If you are not exercising, what do you pledge to give up to make the time?
I can’t wait to hear how you do it or plan to do it. I can’t wait to hear all the things that will get demoted so that you can be a healthier and better YOU. I look forward to your comments.
