Plan ahead. Identify five or six 50-60 minute time slots for physical activity in your weekly schedule, and note them on your calendar.
Lack of time is cited as one of the most common excuses to avoid physical activity. Not having a planned schedule for physical activity makes it difficult to adhere to a regime. This is hard, especially on days that are hectic or stressful, and you feel like giving the activity a miss.
The simplest way to overcome this is to plan ahead, ensuring you commit some time focusing on your physical activity and health. Most health behaviors require small steps taken consistently, amounting to larger changes in your end goals. Also, inconsistent exercise activity leads to more body aches and soreness, which can be reduced with regular exercise.
Try and stick to the same time schedule every day when planning your exercise.
If low energy levels hold you back from exercising, schedule some physical activity when you feel more energetic during the day. Give it a chance – you will soon find that physical activity increases your energy levels!
