Not having enough time to exercise is the WORST excuse, and probably the most common. It shouldn’t be an excuse. Sure I know there are some people who work really long hours and split shifts, etc, which make it more difficult, but not impossible. Exercise should be something that you work your schedule around to suit you! Here is how to make exercise a part of your daily life.

  1. Schedule Your Time

As I mention, the workout needs to suit you. If you start work early and have absolutely no hope of waking up extra early in the morning to fit in a workout, then don’t. Exercise in your lunch break, or after work. Whatever time it is, it must suit your schedule and be something that you can actually achieve.

  1. Increase Incidental Exercise

Every little bit counts and the more exercise you can do during the day, the better! It can be little things such as walking around the office to talk to coworkers rather than sending emails, getting off a train stop early and walking the rest of the way, taking the stairs, getting out of the office at lunch, have a standing desk, doing some squats every time you go to the bathroom or some push ups while you’re waiting for your toast to pop. The options are endless!

  1. You Don’t Need To Join A Gym

Many people think that they need to join a gym to exercise. This is totally wrong! You can do awesome workouts from home (check out my ebooks!). If you’re pushed for time, do a 15-minute at home circuit when you wake up or before dinner (my favourite 15 minute workouts here). If circuits aren’t your thing, go for a walk around the block before dinner or get a workout DVD and do 10-15 minutes whenever you can!

  1. Make It A Habit

Once you find a workout that you enjoy and suits your timeframe, stick to it! Make it a part of your daily routine. The more you do it, the easier it will be to stick to. Soon you won’t even have to think about it, it will just be something that you do :)
