Motivational Quotes - Health and Wellness: 05/03/11

I just don't have the time...

Work. Life. Work. Life. Repeat.

Many of us lead very busy lives. Personally, just under half of each 24-hour day consists of work-related activities (getting ready for work, commuting, being at work, commuting some more, etc.). Then after work comes the "life" stuff - preparing meals, letting out and feeding the dogs, picking up the house as needed, running errands, and so on. Sound familiar? I am willing to bet it does.

"You will never find time for anything. If you want time, you must make it."
-Charles Buxton

There are only so many hours in a day and it seems as though health (exercise, nutrition, etc.) often times falls by the wayside due to "not having enough time". Sure there are going to be some individuals in unique situations who might literally not have any additional time available in their day to make room for exercise (I would still argue though that appropriate nutritional choices can and should still be made). However, large in part, I feel that this excuse really holds no water and instead is just a mask for some other underlying reason as to why the individual is unwilling to focus on their health (i.e. lack of knowledge, feelings of embarassment, etc.). Put those fears aside, understand that you must start somewhere, make the time for exercise, prepare healthy meals and get appropriate amounts of rest...You will be glad you did!
