We know that it’s impossible to find time to exercise when you hold down a job and are way tired from chronic illness symptoms. (Never mind walking the dog and carpooling the kids.) No, you’re not superman (or woman).
Clients tell me that they can’t get up even earlier or come home later to go to the gym. NO?
Read my interview of former NCAA college volleyball coach, Sue Medley, in my eNewsletter. She talks about what exercise can do and what it’s done for her (she lives with congenital mitochondrial myopathy.)
So how hard you trying? Do you think this really is critical to your health?
This is “Foundation” work. It’s fundamental to your being. Try these alternatives:Walk outside on your lunch break, starting with 10 and build to 20 minutes (what do you mean, you don’t take one),
Climb (slowly) the stairs in the hallway several times a day (increasing the number of flights over months)
Circle the parameter of the conference room or any empty office for 10 minutes twice a day (closing the door so no one sees you).Most important, do it with intention and purpose. You might not feel better today or even next week — but you will be healthier down the road. It’s helped my balance, my bone mass, my back pain and my energy level. Exercise (in moderation!) is one of the few things you CAN DO for yourself
