12 tips to find time to work out
With a full time job it’s so hard to find the time to update my blog and instagram as much as I would like, but at the end of the day you always have time for what you choose to prioritize and I do want to prioritize my social media accounts! It’s about taking the time out of your day, planning and organizing – two things I love to do! Instead of spending 1h reading blogs and looking at fitness vlogs on YouTube, I can use that time to create fun blog posts. If I add a little bit of time to my workouts I can get some pictures out of it, and same with my cooking.
There are always things you can do to make time, it comes down to prioritizing and planning. It was definitely much easier to run a blog when I was writing my thesis and working from home, but that doesn’t mean it’s not possible now! I’m gonna set some goals and focus, isn’t that what the autumn is for?
The same structure can easily be applied to working out. A lot of people say they don’t have time to work out, but I think in most cases time is not the problem.
Here are 12 tips to find time to work out:
- Sign up to a gym either close to your house or close to your work/university
- Wake up earlier in the morning to work out before work/university
- Cut down on your TV-shows or Internet surfing
- Work out in your lunch hour
- Work out at home
- Remember that a 30 minute workout is better than NO workout
- Always work out on the weekends / your days off
- Find a gym buddy and plan workouts together
- Always work out on Mondays
- Find a type of workout that you enjoy and that will bring you to your goals
- Follow instagram accounts / blogs / vlogs of people who inspire you to work out
- Set goals for yourself, whether it’s loosing weight, being able to run 5km without stopping, building a booty, increasing your strength, or something else.
I’ll try to apply these tips to my own goal of updating my social media more, and I’m sure you can apply them to other things as well. Remember that everything you do should in the long run lead to something that makes you happy. Sometimes it’s pushing yourself in the gym even though it’s raining out and you’d much rather stay home on your couch. Another time it’s working 12 hours in a row and missing out on TV-shows or dinners with friends, in order to get where you wanna be in your career.
Goals, prioritizing, planning, and balance. And focus on being happy! 🙂
