BLOG 163 REASONS PEOPLE STOP EXERCISING
Our beloved fitness journey through life can be marked by intervals of inactivity. The exercise roller coaster that aims for consistency, can plummet from time to time. As one day off leads to another, time passes, body shape changes, and willpower falters. SO I had to look up the common reasons this might occur for people, especially since I want to keep the green light turned on for every BODY.
Reality speaks: “Studies show that 60% of American adults don’t get the recommended amount of physical activity, and over 25% of adults are not active at all”. (https://www.verywellfit.com/top-reasons-you-dont-exercise-1229759).
In no specific order here’s what I found. You may or may not relate to one or more of the following “excuses”:
1. You hate exercise.
2. Not in your budget or unable to afford it.
3. Not seeing results.
4. Have to take care of the kids/family.
5. Exercise hurts.
6. You just don’t have time.
7. There are other interests you would rather do with your time.
8. No motivation.
9. No energy.
10. I’m too old.
11. I hate doing it alone.
13. Don’t know what/how to do anything.
15. It’s too late to start over.
16. Next year….
Habits take time to develop. We keep the habits in our lives that are comfortable and pleasurable. Exercise is sweat, it is awkward, it is effort involved. BUT it’s good for you. When you do something good for yourself, your BODY and mind will thank you. You may have no idea how good your BODY is meant to feel, so at least give it a chance to try. You know I bug you when you miss a workout ?
