Too busy to stay healthy!?

This months health tip focuses on the most popular and common reason why all good intentions to make health and fitness a priority fail.
“I just don’t have enough time!”
Are you really that busy that your health has to take a back seat? Is it really impossible to make some time available and fit fitness in? I hope that our tip of the months will help you ease into a schedule that balances time spent on yourself and everyday chores in a way that improves the way you look and feel.
Before starting to make changes to your current life style assess realistically the time you need to spend on fitness per day, week or month. The next step is going to set your priorities. Take out a sheet of paper and list on the left side of the page the 10 most important things in your life (family, friends, health, financial security etc.), number 1 being the most important item.

Now continue to add a second list on the right side of the page which details items you spend the most time on every day (work, commute, shopping, cleaning etc.). Again number 1 being the item you spend the most time on.

At this time compare the two sides of the page and find out whether you spent most of your time in accordance with your priorities or if time spent and priorities are misaligned. I am not suggesting that you can avoid wasting time all together but I do believe you can make some changes that will help you to safe time for a personal fitness and health improvement program.
Making your own health and fitness a top priority will not only improve the way you feel but also help you address all the other important items on list number 1 with more energy and greater ease leaving even more time for yourself and those you love.
In good health,
Hartmut Broring
