Finding it hard to find time for fitness? The key is to make fitness a way of life. Instead of meeting your friends at a restaurant or coffee shop, rendezvous at an indoor climbing wall. Or rent tandem bicycles for an afternoon adventure. Don't just remind your friends of the benefits of regular exercise. Bring them along for the ride.
If you're having trouble finding time to exercise, pull out your planner. Schedule exercise as you would schedule an important meeting or appointment. Block off the time in your calendar, and stick to it. Setting aside time for a full workout is great, but shorter bursts of exercise count too.
Want to exercise? Work with your nature, not against it. Plan physical activity for times of day when you tend to feel most active or at least not quite so lazy. If you're an early bird, go jogging first thing in the morning. If you're more of a night owl, you might prefer jogging at sunset.
