Don’t Have Enough Time to Exercise?

Updated: Jul 27


Bottom Line:


You’re busy, and you’re stressed out. Well, you’re not alone. These are two of the most common reasons for not exercising consistently. Ironically, these are the two reasons you should exercise and move your body! Moving your body releases endorphins which help you feel good, relax your mind, reduce stress, and burn calories to keep you looking great.


Why it Matters:


Your body is meant to move. Long hours commuting in your car or sitting at a desk can place a lot of stress on your musculoskeletal system. If your spine and core muscles are weak and unstable, you are more likely to suffer an injury that can cause a downward spiral that impacts your relationships with food, sleep, and exercise. So taking a proactive approach to your exercise routine is crucial to living your best life. Chiropractic adjustments are an essential part of the picture because they can help you feel good mentally and keep you moving physically.

  • Maintaining a healthy weight can decrease the risk factors for cardiovascular and heart disease.

  • Even 15 minutes of light exercise can make a difference in your overall health.

  • Exercise can help you feel good both physically and mentally.

Next Steps:


Schedule time every day to exercise. But don’t get discouraged if you aren’t doing enough. Rome wasn’t built in a day! Even 15 minutes of walking during your afternoon break can provide you with the health benefits you want. Burning an extra hundred calories daily (which could be accomplished with 10 minutes of walking) adds up to thousands of calories each month. Continue that trend; you will notice inches falling off your waistline before you know it!
