For most people making exercise a top of the list priority is not realistic. The thought of actually "having to workout" every day (even for 30 minutes) seems daunting. I have written about this in a previous blog and have posted a blog on Jills List about "not having time".
Today I had another Oprah ahah moment. I realized it's not that people don't have time to exercise, they haven't had time to reap the benefits that exercise provides. Of course, it's so logical (as I hit my head on the wall), yes, that's what it is, they just haven't gotten to the wonders of exercise.
Is it because life has become so chaotic and complicated ~Is it because the strangeness of time doesn't allow us to do one more thing? or is it because of how we see time, how we see our days, how we plan our days, how we waste so many moments during our day that we simply can't add exercise to it. Or is it that as comfort creatures we don't want to "rock the boat", we don't want to join a gym or a walking group or take a fitness class, we just don't have time
But we do have time, all of us have the same amount of hours in a day. Why do some choose to workout/exercise daily, why do others decide three times a week is suffice, why do some take Sundays off!. why do others decide that going to the dentist and grocery shopping is more important than a workout?
Why can't exercise be the main goal, the main thing in our day (preferably in the morning), and then enjoy how everything else falls into place
There is time to exercise: it just needs to be found.
