“But I Don’t Have Time...”
Many people will say that the main reason they don't workout, or eat right, is because of time.
We are all probably guilty of this at some point in our lives. This man made concept that dictates everything we do. We never feel as though we have enough time to accomplish anything.
We are waking up early to rush to get everyone in the house out the door, off to school/work/or household duties, in the afternoon we may be rushing kids to their afterschool activities maybe 2 a day, then rushing home to throw something quick together to eat or take out,homework/housework, and then going to bed absolutely exhausted because we spread ourselves too thin.
We are even doing this to our children. Overscheduling has become the new trend across America. Eventually we will all burn ourselves out with our “so busy” way of life and in the process we are dramatically taking a toll on our wellbeing and our health.
How many times have you said:
● "Oh I will just have to run through the drive through because I don't have enough time to fix dinner." You know you can meal prep.
● "I didn't have time to workout today." 10 minutes is better than none. You could
go for a walk, do a small circuit, stretch.
● "I don't have time to read." But maybe you have time to play on facebook or watch
● "You should sit in meditation for 20 minutes, unless you don't have enough time.
Then you should sit for at least an hour." This is true. If you think that you don't have
the time then you should carve out the time. That should be for all aspects of your life.
● Eating healthy
● Spending time with your family
We have 24 hours in a day. You can find time through your day to add in healthy
options and to cut out things that are not ultimately serving your health.
The best way to go about this is to:
● Write down your daily schedule from what time you wake up to what time you go
to bed. And don’t forget to add in computer time, drive time, tv time, etc.
● Write down your health goals and ways that you would go about achieving them
(i.e. lose 20 pounds: workout at least 30 minutes a day, pack my lunch, etc).
● Now put these side to side. Start to look at what you can remove from your daily
schedule and find ways to add in activities that will help you reach your goals. (Stop
mid afternoon computer time and add in a 30 minute walk. Cut out TV time once a
week and meal prep for lunch.)
If we all cared as much about our health as we do about time we would understand
that time goes by fast, and we need to get a grasp on our health while we can!
