How can I find time to exercise three times a week with such a hectic job?
By Trail magazine
Life coach Ian Sharp says, “The first question I ask anyone is, “What do I want?” and then “What stops me?” Here, the issue is the balance of work and training time and you solve it by prioritising what you really need to do as a way of making time for what you really want to do.”
Start by setting your goal. Target a specific mountain that you want to do that weekly exercise for to avoid any time-related excuses.
Give your 30 minute fitness training the priority it deserves on your ‘to do’ list, rearranging work items that can be done tomorrow, more efficiently, by someone else, or even not done at all.
Beat post-work tiredness with this neuro-linguistic programming exercise. Give yourself a good shake (like beam me up Scotty – find a loo cubicle for this part), then visualize how good you’ll feel after training and after achieving your mountain goal.
Start with smaller chunks of exercise time. By taking action and kick-starting the habit of exercising for even 10 or 15 minutes, you’ll get into the habit of making time for training.
