It's a common knowledge that exercise combined with a healthy diet is the best way of keeping fit and healthy. There may be many reasons why a person can’t exercise but often, these reasons are more like excuses. In this article is going to be some reasons that you might be neglecting exercise and how you can change it to lead a healthier lifestyle.

No Time

A popular excuse for not wanting to exercise is that you have no time to do so. While we are all busy with work, children, loved ones and more, that shouldn’t be a reason not to do any exercise. Of course, you’re entitled to rest after a long day, but setting aside time once you are at home to do some exercise should be something you’re doing.

If you can’t see that happening, why not change your lifestyle up slightly by walking to work instead of driving or taking public transport. You will notice the difference in how you feel in just a few short weeks of doing so. You will even find that you’re sleeping better than you used to.


Painful Joints

While there are many conditions that people have that affect their joints, some people use it as an excuse not to exercise. Did you know that exercise will improve the way that your joints feel in the long run? To get yourself moving initially, consider taking joint active so that you won’t be in as much pain when you first get going.

You will thank yourself once you have begun to exercise because the pain in your joints will ease slightly, if not completely. Remember to exercise gently to prevent injury to your joints.

Too Unfit

Many people think that they have passed a point of being able to be fit again. You might not be able to do much exercise at first, but try and think of it this way: every step you take, you’re lapping someone that’s sat on their sofa doing nothing about their fitness.

If you’re too unfit because of weight issues then exercising will certainly help this issue too. You will soon begin to notice a drop on the scales, and you will have more energy too. Remember to eat healthily and drink enough water to reap the full benefits.

Can’t Afford To Go To The Gym

Another popular excuse not to exercise. The solution here is to use the world around you to exercise. You don’t have to join a gym to become fit or exercise, you can simply take long walks, go running, do yoga or fitness videos at home, join a free exercise class, and the list goes on.

If you’ve found yourself relating to any of these excuses, then try improving your lifestyle by heading out to exercise. You will feel better faster than you think! Remember that exercise is best paired with a healthy diet and enough water too.
