You are wasting your time…

People always use the excuse of not having enough time to get stuff done.

 

Especially exercise, it’s most people’s favourite get out clause as to why they haven’t been to the gym or a class or done anything at all. Now I am fully aware that life gets in the way of the things we would like to do or at least feel we need to do.

 

That’s ok.

 

In those times you need to write it off to focus on what’s important or you need to push back and CREATE time to do the things we need/want to do. But that isn’t really the point I am trying to make. What I am trying to say is that people use the excuse of not having time but blatantly waste time doing things that in all seriousness could be done some other time or not at all.

 

I am guessing you want me to give you some examples?

 

My pleasure.

 

TV is a big one and always has been. I’d like to see how many hours people actually watch TV per week. I am sure the number would surprise you. Then we have the ever-present mobile phone. Now I am first to admit that for my business I couldn’t live without my phone but I try as much as possible to restrict my time on it and especially out of working hours. Social media is along side TV the BIGGEST time stealer we have. You can get lost in your phone for a long time.

 

Before you know it you have spent 30 minutes going from video to video or scrolling through your news feed.

 

Time is precious. You don’t get it back. Don’t waste it.

 

I would suggest blocking out a specific amount of time to get the important things done. Now it’s obviously my job to tell you to use that time to exercise or food prep. If getting a better body and feeling good about yourself is your goal then you should but it can also be used to get other important tasks done.

 

Set aside some time and don’t let anything get in the way of what you are doing.

 

Turn off your phone, record your favourite program and get to work.
