I can go on for hours about why working out is important. I can also list off all the ways I try to avoid it. BUT this is for those super hectic days, weeks, even months where it seems like we just don’t have the time to focus on our health and working out. And when we do have those moments of downtime, all we can think about doing is relaxing or getting those extra z’s. I am definitely more than guilty of this. I fall off the workout wagon time and time again. But I’ve seen what a busy schedule and traveling without worrying about fitness has done to both my health and my body. It makes me grumpy, self-conscious, laziness sets in, and just a feeling of constantly being tired. None of these work well when you are busy. This is why even though I fall off the fitness ladder, I keep getting back on and putting in effort to make it work into my schedule.
Here are a few reasons why you should make the extra effort to squeeze in a workout even when you are super, crazy busy.
And I know, I KNOW, that just because you know something is good for you doesn’t make it any easier to follow through with.
Let me tell you friends, Pinterest is your best friend when you are looking for a quick workout. You do not need to fit in a crazy workout! That is the key to making this work when you are busy! While it is ideal to get a whole hour in if you can, sometimes it’s just not doable. That’s when you need Pinterest. You can find a ton of workouts, and you don’t even need to hit up the gym. If Pinterest isn’t your thing, there’s always youtube. There are many, many fitness bloggers and youtubers who post quick workout videos. My personal favorite is Blogilates. Don’t know what that is? You better check it out here. By far my favorite place to find a quick workout.
In the end it’s up to you to make a workout fit into your schedule. And some people don’t ever feel the need to workout which is completely fine as everyone is different. But for those who are like me that notice a difference in their mood and energy, we need to focus on making something work.
