Did you realize how many benefits exercising has? It can make you feel better about yourself, give you more energy, and help relieve stress.
Finding the time to exercise isn’t always easy, especially if you are a busy mom. Here are some tips to help you find the time:
- Schedule it in: Pencil in some exercising time, just as you would any appointment. If it’s on your schedule, you are more likely to follow through on your exercise plans.
- Get a buddy: Ask a friend to meet you for workouts. It’s a lot harder to skip your workouts when you know that there will be someone at the gym waiting for you.
- Join a 24 hour gym: If your schedule is irregular and you find that gyms are closed during the free time you have to work out, find a gym that is open 24 hours a day. Many chains that offer this service are popping up all over the country. (check out www.anytimefitness.com to see if there is a location in your area)
- Buy some DVDs: Invest in some fitness DVDs and you won’t have to worry about making it out to the gym. Whenever you want to work out, you can simply pop in a DVD.
