We all know how challenging it can be to fit in a half- hour to an hour a day of exercise. And most of us also know how important that hour of exercise is both mentally and physically. That hour is your “me time” and it is incredibly important. It’s your time to unwind and relax. Physically that hour keeps your bones healthy, strengthens your muscles and immune system and brings you one step closer to the physique you’re trying to achieve. So how can we all find the time to fit exercise into our hectic day? The first step is considering your workout a “necessary” part of the day, just like brushing your teeth or paying bills. Take the time each day to add it to your appointment book (in ink!) and you will be more likely to stick to it. Most of our members find that even if they promise themselves to workout for only 15 minutes, they will keep going because of the endorphins they feel. Will you have days, even weeks, when your workout schedule becomes irregular, and working out falls a notch on the priority list? Absolutely. Our best advice for fitting in your “me time” is making yourself a promise to make it happen. We all have 24 hours in the day; it’s up to us how we choose to use them.
