It’s a fact, the days last 24 hours and time goes by at the same speed for everyone. But why do some people manage to do everything they want and others not? Perhaps because we tend to find excuses, in particular the famous: “I don’t have time to exercise”, but is that a real excuse or only a sign of a lack of motivation? or organization?
Become aware of unnecessary and time-consuming activities
A good organization is essential to be able to take full advantage of its 24 hours. Of course, you have to honor your daily obligations: work, studies, children, cooking, cleaning and keep a social life, which is essential to your development. Don’t forget to surf the web and social networks to find out about the latest lifestyle, healthy & sporty trends.
The Internet is full of useful information, but which sometimes makes you feel guilty. By browsing to the rhythm of blogs, sites and various posts, you are overwhelmed by a wave of harmonious, muscular, balanced bodies and suddenly a question crosses your mind. You wonder why you too don’t have a sculpted body. But since it’s already 11 p.m., you finally choose the shower and sleep option. Shame ! If you had cut a few minutes here and there during your day, you could have freed up enough time to shape your abs, have concrete thighs or even prominent pectorals.
Only 20 minutes are enough to take care of your body! Luckily, these 20 minutes correspond to the majority of fitness training sessions. Exercise actively helps you regain control of your body by combining muscle building, cardio, abs and stretching according to your body needs. Start now in pursuit of wasted time, say goodbye to lack of time and you will no longer say to yourself: “I don’t have time to exercise”!
List and rank your priorities
The most important thing to “gain” 20 minutes in a day is to eliminate time-consuming activities. The minutes gleaned here and there will allow you to free up enough time for an effective sports session. But what to do when you don’t have time to exercise?
Tip 1: add blogs to your favorites: this will allow you to target your moments of relaxation and not get lost in the jungle of the web.
Tip 2: read the news on the internet or in print instead of watching the 8 p.m. television news. You will not be constrained by schedules and you will have the choice to inform you when you wish.

Advice is always good to take, but the hardest part is putting it into action and adapting it to your schedule.
First step, get down to business by analyzing your day.
List all your daily activities and estimate their duration. Make a 2-column chart (activities/duration) identifying all your daily activities from when you wake up to bedtime, including meals, commuting and work, this will allow you to take a step back and quantify your occupations.
Second step: Once this list has been established, go back to your table and ask yourself the right questions.
Does the lunch break necessarily have to last 1h:30 minutes?
Is there not a faster option by bike or by mixing walking and public transport to go to work?
Third step: add a column to your table indicating the time you could save per activity.
Fourth step: Add up your minutes earned.
Add up the minutes saved during your day using your table. We saved 35 minutes in a single morning with this strategy. Lack of time will no longer be one of your best excuses since these minutes can be used tomorrow for a morning exercise session which will guarantee you a dynamic and successful day.
Sometimes it’s good to take a step back when everything is going at 100 per hour. Taking the time to lay things out will help you identify futile activities and prioritize those that are really worth doing. Organize your days by locking your schedule in advance and keep 20 minutes, whenever you want, three times a week for your exercise session. “No time to exercise? “False excuse!
Do you still have less than 20 minutes? Analyze your time again and forget your false excuse and get started today!
Little by little, your exercise will become part of your priorities and your routine. And the lack of time to take care of yourself will only be a distant excuse.
