The new year brings resolutions to finally go to the gym regularly and to get your health in order. It’s no surprise to you to hear that the vast majority of those resolutions are dropped by spring (or even late January, early February!) — but why?
I truly believe it is planning. It’s the exact reason why my exercise routine goes dormant, and it’s probably why yours does too. It’s tough to change our habits and routines, and most of all, it’s hard to fit one more thing into our schedule. Don’t you agree?
That’s the thing. If it’s not on your schedule, it’s not going to get done. Do you have your exercise, whether it be walking, jogging, yoga, dance, a workout at the gym — is it on your schedule? Is there a time for it, where you know that time is carved out?
If not, fit it into your schedule this week. Make it achievable — if you’re slammed at work this week, write in a 15-minute walk on your lunch break. Don’t give up altogether because you don’t have an hour and a half to hit the gym. Good luck!
