The excuse I hear all the time; Is I have no time to do this or that.

 

Now this is a good excuse and a bad excuse.

 

Arnold Schwarzenegger said “Don’t give me this I don’t have time, I don’t have time for this and I don’t have time for that. You make the time. If the president has time to work out and the pope has time to work out. Then so do you”.

 

Now this is a dramatic view on it. But it’s a very valid point. In another interview he goes onto say that there is 24 hours a day. And basically says that your telling me that you can’t spare 45 minutes to 1 hour to put towards something which will benefit your health?

 

Which is very thought provoking statement. If you are too busy to worry about your health then you seriously need to have a long hard look at yourself.

Because you’re basically telling me that your health is not important to you.

 

The easiest way around the ‘I don’t have time to do this or that’ is have a hard look and think about how your day is structured.

 

Things to look at and see where you can take some time back.

  • Sleep
  • Work
  • Travel
  • Food
  • How much time do you spend watching TV?

 

Once you have gone though these things you will soon realise actually I spend a lot of time watching TV etc. And you will soon realise where you can take time back or multi-task things. Such as make twice as much lunch which in turn makes your dinner later on.

 

Along with this you will realise I can spend 45 minutes doing a workout at home. Or I can do some stretching while watching TV.

 

Time can seem like a very good excuse. But it can be easily overcome. The easiest way I get my own head around ‘time’ is I map/plan out my day while I’m eating my breakfast. I write down what I need to do and soon realise I can easily get this stuff boxed off. This is because I have taken away the daunting part of Oh My God I have so much to do today and have no time to do this or that.

 

You will soon realise that you can spare some time for something which will benefit you in the long run and lead to long term happiness.

 

Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail.
