5 Common Not-So-Credible Excuses For Not Exercising

Now, we all know that there are many benefits to putting on our gym clothes and working up a sweat. It’s good for our health, boosts our happiness levels, and all-around helps us to become the best version of ourselves. Yet, of course, people don’t always do what’s good for them - if they did, there’d be no smokers. Still, the excuses that people come up with don’t always stand up to scrutiny. Below, we take a look at some of those common exercise excuses, and show that they’re not logical after all! 

Finding the Time 

We know, we know: it’s not easy out there. We all have to hustle more than we’d like. Between the commute, those long working hours, making dinner, etc., we’re not left with all that must time to ourselves. But many of us do have more time than we realize - it’s just that we’d rather spend it doing something else. So the next time you think that you would exercise if only you had the time, remember that there’s a chance you do have the time - it’s just that you’d rather spend that time watching television. 

“It Makes Me Uncomfortable” 

There’s no greater excuse for not working out than “my body doesn’t like it.” It sounds credible enough: why put your body through something if it’s only going to cause you pain or discomfort? However, in this day and age, there’s most likely a solution. There are excellent warm-up and cool down routines on YouTube, for instance. If running causes you pain, then you can click here and get an insole that’ll make it more comfortable to spend time on the treadmill. Very often people blame their body for not exercising before they’ve even investigated whether there’s a solution or not. 

It’s Boring 

Anything can be boring, if you have no interest in it. When it comes to exercising without excuses, the trick, therefore, is to find something that you are interested in and can enjoy. There are a million and one different types of exercise. If you don’t like the culture of the gym, then maybe you’ll prefer indoor rock climbing. If not that, then how about soccer, or cross-country skiing? All of these activities will help get your exercising career underway - and what’s more is that you’ll be having a fun time in the process. Nice! 

No Energy 

OK, you’re exhausted. Fair enough! Only here’s the thing: while exercising obviously exerts energy, it also gives you energy at the same time. After a few weeks of exercising, eating healthier, and taking the right dietary supplements consistently, you’ll find that you’ve naturally got more energy throughout the day. If you’re sitting around all the time, then your body will think that’s what’s normal, and you’ll always be in a state of tiredness. 

Too Far Gone 

If you think that you’re already too unhealthy for exercising to make a difference, just remember that every great journey begins with a single step! It’s never too late to make a difference to your health. Start small, and slowly work your way up. You’ll make progress pretty quickly!
