Hey, it's Justine from Inclusive Movement.

This is one that I know affects a lot of us—busyness.

Struggling to fit exercise into your packed schedule? You're not alone. Many of us face the challenge of squeezing workouts into our busy lives. But fear not, I'm here to share practical, tried-and-tested tips to help you make time for fitness, no matter how hectic your schedule may seem. And this is from me, a mom-trepreneur who gets it!

1. Treat Your Workout Like an Essential Appointment

  • Schedule your exercise sessions as if they were non-negotiable meetings. This means putting them in your calendar ahead of time, allowing for mental preparation and better planning of meals and sleep. One day per week, take a few minutes to look at the week ahead and decide when you can fit in your workouts. This small act can make a significant difference in your commitment.

2. Prepare Your Workout Gear in Advance

  • If you plan to exercise early in the morning or right after work, lay out your workout clothes the night before. This step can help you avoid procrastination and the hassle of finding comfortable attire when you're already pressed for time.

3. Integrate Movement Into Your Daily Routine

  • Opt for the stairs instead of the elevator or park your car further away from your destination to add some extra steps to your day.

4. Follow a Structured Program

  • Having a set program means you don't waste time each day deciding what workout to do. This can streamline your routine and keep you on track.

5. Minimize Distractions During Your Workout

  • Put your phone on silent to avoid interruptions from calls or notifications. This helps you stay focused and make the most of your workout time.

6. Have a Ready-to-Go Playlist

  • Music can be a great motivator. Spend some time creating a workout playlist, so you don't find yourself skipping songs and losing momentum during your session.

With these simple but effective strategies, you can make exercise a regular part of your life, regardless of how busy you are. Remember, consistency is key, and even small changes can lead to significant results over time. Start implementing these tips today, and watch your fitness journey transform despite your busy schedule.
