Are you trying to incorporate exercise into your daily routine but finding it difficult? Overcoming the “I don’t have time” obstacle can be a challenge. Any time you change up your routine, things feel “off” for a little while until the new routine eventually becomes the norm. Attempting to add a two hour gym workout five days a week is probably not going to sit well with your schedule, so start slowly. If you want to go to the gym, try a 20-30 minute session twice a week at first. And stop there first on your way home from work, so you don’t get distracted and lose motivation.

Another strategy to overcome the exercise barrier is to disguise it as something other than exercise. Join a softball league, play tag with your kids, go for a nature hike, or even learn to play the drums – all will get your heart rate elevated while you’re having fun!
