Sticking to your exercise regime can be a ‘piece of cake’, thanks to these exercise adherence tips below!
The number one EXCUSE for not doing enough exercise is a lack of time. However, the brutal reality is we all get the same 24 hours a day (which, by the way, is 168 hours a week). Whether you exercise or not, therefore, is a matter of priorities but there is no denying that life in the 21st century is busy and getting busier. We are all under constant pressure to do more and be more, however, the good news is you can achieve both. You can be busy and productive and still look and feel your best in today’s fast-paced world because keeping fit and healthy can be achieved and sustained in as little as 30 MINUTES, three times a week. This should be your non-negotiable minimum.
Before you start saying you’ve heard this all before, let’s get super clear on the facts;
- Short workouts require the right intensity (subject to your health and fitness status)
- Ideally, include an essential selection of compound resistance exercises to work all the major muscles and joints,
- While also challenging the cardiovascular system.
- Recovery stretches to relax and promote flexibility complete the picture.
This is potentially a solution that leaves you 166.5 hours a week to get on with your life;
- This time with more energy,
- With less perceived stress,
- Feeling healthier,
- Feeling happier and most likely looking better as well.
If you don’t make time for your non-negotiable exercise minimum of at least 30 minutes, three times a week, then you may start losing more time away from your work, family, friends and favourite pursuits due to illness, while also becoming less effective and productive as the years tick by.
You know you need regular exercise to be the best you can be – it’s about time!
