How often have you heard “I don’t have time for…”, or have you used it yourself?
Do you think Leonardo Da Vinci ever said it? Probably not. Yet days have not been getting any shorter.
We all have, and always have had, 24 hours in a day.
Time is not important, it’s what you do with it that counts.
Just 20 minutes a day is enough to maintain a fit and healthy body
Can you say with hand on heart that you honestly don’t have time to set aside 20 minutes in a day?
Just a glance at your YouTube history will prove you a liar.
Have a look at your Facebook log. Also take a look at your WhatsApp / SnapChat history.
You know the culprits
If you really want to exercise, you will find a way. If you don’t really want to, you’ll find excuses. Have a look at the Excuse Blanket.
We are all naturally lazy. Don’t be ashamed of it. We all take the easy road, it’s part of our nature.
People who say “I don’t have time for fitness”, would probably, on analysing their reality of the situation, would see that they are deluding themselves.
With a little honest introspection, they would come to see that the excuses they make is just that, excuses. Their excuses become a blanket to hide under when the exercise monster arrives.
Have you ever said to yourself one of these things:
But it will take 30 minutes to get to the gym?
But it will take about 30 minutes to just drive to the gym!
But the gym is expensive and I am trying to save money!
But it’s not just the workout, you will need to eat after the workout, you will need to take a shower and you need to change your clothes 3 times!
My response to the contents of your excuse blanket is, don’t go to the gym.
You can do high intensity exercises home. You don’t need any equipment.
The shower and eating excuses are very silly. Don’t you have to take a shower and eat regardless of exercising?
With the right nutrition and constant training your recovery times will reduce dramatically. So if this is your issue, the only way it can get fixed, is by training more.
Running is also free! Well, almost! All you need are a pair of trainers. I’m sure most people can afford a basic pair of trainers. I do recommend investing in a good pair if you can afford it.

Next time you tell yourself you’ve got no time, think like Leonardo Da Vinci. Like everyone else, you will have 20 minutes to spare.
You need to make sure that you invest in your body, because it is the best investment you will ever make.
