How many times have you heard someone say, “I want to get in shape…But I don’t have time to workout…”
Yeah, lots of times!
I just want to grab them, shake them by the shoulders and say, “You’re full of @#$!”
Anyone can make time to exercise! Even if it’s only 10 minutes a day, that’s 10 minutes more than nothing!
You might think that Mega-Pro®’s only interested in serious athletes like Bodybuilders, Powerlifters, Football, Basketball, Rugby players, MMA athletes etc. But the truth is; Everyone Deserves the benefits of a Healthy Lifestyle! Everyone Deserves the benefits of Regular Exercise!
So listen up! If you’re one of those people who says, “I don’t have time to exercise…” Then here’s some news just for you. “Yes You Do!”
Let’s go over a few questions.
Do you watch TV?
Do you play video games?
Do you spend time on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or any of the other social media sites?
There are many activities that could be listed. But these are easily the most notorious.
TV is probably the biggest culprit when it comes to “No time to exercise”.
Here’s one TV scenario: You’re bored. You switch on the TV to see if anything is worth watching. You flip through the channels, nothing seems good. Finally you settle for some show that you didn’t even know was on but that seems ok to watch. Well guess what? Not only did you just waste time “Figuring out what to watch” but now you’re going to waste time watching something you didn’t even care about!
Does that make any sense?
That’s time you could use to exercise!
Here’s another TV scenario: You’ve had a busy day and missed your morning workout. You come home tired and turn on the TV to relax for a while. Next thing you know it’s late. Where did the time go? Well, you slipped into the mindless stupor of Television and wasted your evening.
You could have exercised!
But you were tired…
Yeah? Did you know that exercise energizes you and makes you feel better when you’re tired?
Now, you’ll notice I never said anything about watching your favorite show or tuning in for your teams game. The trick is to schedule your TV time instead of letting it schedule you.
What about video games? Don’t even get me started on this one! What a colossal waste of time. People waste countless hours of their lives trying to achieve imaginary goals in imaginary worlds… All of that time could be spent doing things like exercising, hiking, sports, time with family, learning a new skill, etc.
OK. I know video games are important to some people. I have a friend who wanted to get in better shape. But he wasn’t willing to give up his video games. So he came up with an ingenious solution. He either rode his exercise bike or walked on his treadmill while playing video games. He never played his video games unless he was exercising at the same time. And guess what? He lost over 60 pounds in a year using that method.
Of course there are fitness video games now that are fun and healthy. You can try those too!
Let’s tackle Social Media Websites.
For some of us this is part of our job. We create relationships and provide value using Social Media. Social Media is all about connecting in one way or another. And connecting with others is good.
The problem happens when Social Media starts feeling urgent. It’s easy to think you have to check to see what you’re friends status is, or that you have to get the latest updates from people you enjoy communicating with. When Social Media feels urgent, it steals time from important activities like exercise because you’re allowing it to control your actions.
The best ways to combat this are to set time limits and schedule time for your Social Media playground. Then stick to your schedule! Another way is to make the commitment that you’ll match the time you spend on Social Media with time working out!
If you’re on Facebook for 30 minutes, then workout out for 30 minutes!
Even as little at 30 minutes exercise a day will create life altering results. You’ll feel better, handle stress easier, and have more energy for everything you do!
It’s up to you. You can either bemoan the shape you’re in or you can Do Something About it!
