We all have our reasons for not working out, yet excuses only prevent us from being happy and healthy. Here are some of the most common excuses and ways to overcome them. Remember, no one ever regrets a workout!
Too tired – The first and most common reason to avoid regular exercise evaporates as soon as you push through it the first time. Multiple studies have shown regular physical activity can improve energy.
Too busy – Another popular excuse, it’s an easy out to cite scheduling conflicts before shrugging off the gym, but according to the American Heart Association, only 75 minutes of weekly vigorous exercise is needed to improve your health.
Not motivated – Possibly the most difficult excuse to overcome, there are several ways to jumpstart motivation. One of the best is to post a goal using social media. No one likes falling short in front of others, so commit publicly to hold yourself accountable.
