“If it’s important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse”

I love this quote. It perfectly sums up how people make time for things in their life. Now, I can say that parents may be at a disadvantage on this one, because kids seem to commandeer schedules pretty quickly. But we still truly make time for what we want in life. So when I hear people say they don’t have time to exercise, I know it’s just an excuse. We all have time to exercise. Exercise can be done at home and for very little money. So if you truly do not want to exercise, any excuse will do. Here are my many questions for the person who says they don’t have time…

So if you have no time to exercise, do you really want to make room for exercise in your schedule? Do you feel you have to exercise because society tells you that you need to? Do you want to lose weight and feel that exercise is the only way you know how to do so? Is there any form of movement that you do enjoy? Playing a sport? Dancing? Hiking, kayaking, biking? Would you make time for those activities instead vs the old standard gym exercises?

So stop making excuses and determine what it is you really want. Once you do that you can drop the excuses all together and make room for what is important to you. Because if it is important, you will make time for it…whatever ‘it’ is.
