Some people have managed to get more than enough exercise done into their daily routines but most have not. One of the biggest barriers to regular exercise is that it can be difficult to find the right time to do it. Our modern life style can be so busy that can easily take up most of our time. Here are a few more tips on how to integrate fitness into your very busy schedule.

Make a schedule and commit to it
One of the most common reasons to skip a workout goes something like this: “I am very busy at work today; I can’t make it.” If you unexpectedly had to pick up your child from school and had no back-up plan, how would you deal with the situation? Cancel an internal meeting? Take some work home with you? The truth is that most of us when we really need to, we get out of the office at the time that is necessary. Find the times that work best for you and do it every single day. Do not do the workouts when you think you should workout, but do it when it is best for you and your family. Make a schedule (write it down might help!) and stick to it. Keep reminding yourself that working out is a priority worth keeping.
Track your activity
Make a note in your mobile device or calendar every time you work out, and add up your workout sessions at the end of each session or at least in a weekly or monthly bases so you can monitor your progress and identify areas for improvement. Measuring your activity levels and ideally keeping notes on your progress can help you to stay on track and keep motivated.
Something is always better than nothing
You do not need a complete hour, or even 30 minutes, to get a complete, effective workout. Some exercises are virtually always better than none. Even seven minutes can make a difference! We can always find a few free minutes in our day (yes, we can!). With an effective program, and done frequently enough, short and speedy workouts can do wonders to both the body and mind. Squeeze in fitness wherever you are and no matter how much time you have with bodyweight exercises or with the help of apps with pre-programmed short workouts, you can even do some exercises at your desk!
