Excuses are those concise, little strings of words that we usually use to get out of uncomfortable situations and decisions or plans that we’ve committed to. Tamala Ceasar outlines the most used excuses when it comes to exercising.
This is a common excuse, but the question is, are you healthy? Your size doesn’t dictate your health and fitness levels.
The gym isn’t for everyone and thankfully there are so many other ways to exercise, for example swimming, dance classes, outdoor park gyms, running, jogging or even YouTube videos for exercise sessions at home.
We make time for the things that are important to us. As the saying goes, ‘Health is wealth’. So, should your health not be on your priority list?
As stated in no.2 there are tons of inexpensive or free avenues to start exercising. Maybe consider walking for 30mins each day instead of talking public transport to and from work? Or how about hopping onto YouTube and type in ‘simple workout routines’? Where there is a will there is a way.
Why is this the case? What changes and what happens to the enthusiasm that we once had?
If you can identify with any of the above, to get you back on track think about the following:
1. Look after your body
It’s crucial that your body is in good place health-wise
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
'Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies'
2. Conquer the mind
Keeping your mind in a healthy state is a product of exercise and choosing to follow through with decisions you’ve made translates positively into other areas in your life.
2 Timothy 1:7 (NKJV)
'For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.'
