Are you tired of telling yourself, you are going to exercise and then you end up not doing it. Well you can stop feeling guilty, this is not a guilt trip post. This post covers top 9 reasons why you hardly exercise.
(1)Like all good things exercise takes self-discipline and commitment.
Self-discipline and commitment are necessary when it comes to keeping to an exercise regimen whether it’s once a week or on a daily basis, sticking to a particular routine can sometimes seem like too much work.
(2) You are lazy when it comes to physical activity.
You would rather consider climbing the stairs in your house as exercise or just imagine yourself exercising without actually doing it.
(3)You have a busy schedule.
You are a workaholic and consider exercise of any sort as a waste of time.
(4) You like sleep and can’t imagine waking up early in the morning just to exercise.
You love to hit the snooze button when you alarm rings and continue sleeping even after you promised yourself you would exercise that morning.
You think only fat people and models should exercise.
(6) Your body aches after exercising.
After the first day of exercise your body felt like it has being doing manual labor and you swore never to exercise again.
(7) You picked the wrong work out.
You saw this great exercise routine on YouTube and decided you were going to try it out, didn’t work for you and now you don’t believe in exercising.
(8) You overdo it.
So you made up your mind to exercise and on the first day you worked out for 3 hours, now exercising seems like a draining task.
(9) You feel it cost too much money.
You decided to register in a gym but their prices were above your budget.
Exercising takes commitment but you don’t have to take it as one serious task or something that only athletes or serious minded people do. Personally I never really liked exercise until I was gingered (i.e. motivated) by a friend to start jogging.
This is a form of exercise I actually enjoy I decided to take exercise in short strides, I started with just 30 minutes of jogging daily I also set a time frame for two weeks in which i would jog consistently, I did this so as not to put pressure on myself. Sincerely it was painful at first as all my body felt sore but as I got used to it, it became enjoyable and I looked forward to exercising every day.
If you are lazy about exercise you may need to enlist the services of a Personal Trainer to motivate you and keep you on track. You can also find friends who are interested in exercising and you can motivate each other to exercise daily.
Some people are just too busy to exercise on a daily basis, being a career person, a student with a huge work load or a single mother with little kids to raise doesn’t really give you any time to think of exercise or even actually doing it.
If you are one of such people who are too busy to exercise daily make good use of your weekend. You can enroll in a gym or a sports club this way you still get to unwind and reap the benefits of exercising.
When it comes to exercising you don’t have to break the bank, some sports club or gyms are quite expensive but there are lots of them that are also quite affordable, look for one that is within you budget and register. Also exercising doesn’t have to cost anything going for a jog, run,walk or skipping cost little or nothing at all.
Everyone likes to sleep in a few hours extra, so getting out of bed early in the morning to exercise might seem like a lot of work. I do it sometimes, there are days I literally have to give myself a pep talk on why I should get out of bed and when I finally do I have to drag myself to exercise but each time I do, it’s always worth it.
