Exercise isn’t your default reaction to stress in your life. Most people fall off the exercising bandwagon when ‘things just get too much’. I will argue that this is the very time that you need it the most. I remember calling a local company in my early days of running the business here only to be cut short by the gatekeeper/receptionist with an indignant tone, “the workers don’t have time or energy left for exercise!” Ironic or what??

Someone also said to me recently that ‘it’s all about time management’ WRONG.

It’s all about priorities. If you have heard me rant before then you already know this. But it bears repeating as my old uni lecturer used to say, repetition is the mother of all learning. Wise words.

Many are called and few are chosen they say. Do you want to be part of the many or the few? You just have to look at the numbers quoted in the Sydney Morning Herald on Saturday. “two thirds of Australians are overweight or obese”. I don’t care how many times I read that , it just saddens me. The most interesting and fun people I know are those that move regularly and push themselves a bit. Fair enough if we were designed with no legs and no arms, the couch would be the best place to hang out. But come on, seriously!  We have a heart and lungs that allow us to do so much, just ask Cadel. The side effects of using them are nothing but good.

It is worth pursuing, whatever it takes, for this exercise gig to be the something you ‘just do’ as part of your very full and action packed life. Or perhaps just ignore it at your peril and or  experience a life only half lived. If you believe you only get one shot at this thing then time is of the essence my friend.

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
