That is to say, there are only 24 hours in a day. Every day you make choices. The choice to go to work, be positive or negative, or not eat well, move instead of watching TV and so on. I often talk with people about healthy lifestyles. Many people ask me, “How do you find the time for training? I do not have time! “I tell them training and a healthy lifestyle are the priorities in my diary.

Finding time

A few months ago, I received a private client consultation and she asked me to try to find a place to train in its schedule for the week. At first glance, the situation was like that of many women seeking work, two beautiful children and a spouse on the road. Looking at his schedule, we found that it could do 20 minutes of strength training at home in the morning. Then she went to work. During lunch, I suggested to go for a walk for 30 minutes to activate its metabolism. For the evening, it was a little more difficult because the ritual was watching TV with the family. I then asked to trade 30 minutes of TV for 30 minutes of fidgeting family. In the beginning, these children were not very keen on the idea of ​​abandoning the TV outside, but after a few weeks, it was a success all the way! The mother / child has even improved since when playing outside together, they also took the time to talk.


And you?

This woman, who thought it was impossible to move because of his busy schedule, a woman who is now taking care of her day around 1:15. My intention is not to put everyone in the same basket, but when you say your schedule prevents you from time to adopt a healthy lifestyle and active, have you actually taken the time to analyze all possible situations? In today’s society, you are encouraged to invest in your social life, your love life, your job at the office and in contributing to your RRSP, but what about your health RRSP? With life expectancy increasing every year, how do you live your retirement?

In closing, I would like to quote the words of a great English writer Charles Caleb Colton who once wrote that the richest give all his money to the health but the poorest would not exchange it for all the health money in the world. Good thinking!
