Sports in everyday life – the right time management is important
“I have no time to exercise.” This is probably the most common excuse when it comes to movement in everyday life. Since our lives are getting more and more stressful, there isn’t that much room for free time. With work, shopping, household, family and friends, the couch appears very inviting in the evenings. Unfortunately, we waste a lot of time because of a bad appointment management and the so-called “time thieves” such as telephones, the internet, television and Co.
First of all it is important to have a positive attitude towards sport. Fitness is not a waste of time, but an effective, healthy and balancing recreational activity. Especially in stressful times sport is the best way to get your body and mind back into balance. Just as the daily work, your training program should have a permanent place in your calendar as well. But friends and family also have to be involved in the personal time management to avoid “nasty surprises”. Important tasks of everyday life should always be done immediately; unimportant things can possibly be postponed in favour of any sport. It also saves time to take the running clothes to work or to do the shopping on the way home. Who doesn’t have to go to work too early in the morning can complete the training before, because especially in the morning, the body is very powerful. The best way to combine private life and sport is to exercise with a partner or a friend.
As you do for your job, you can also set personal goals in sport: “This year I will run a half marathon” or “I want to lose a few pounds” – the happiness of a successful experience is the best motivation to keep going.
Enough periods of rest, fresh air and healthy nutrition are important for your personal performance. People, who constantly put themselves under pressure, will lose their motivation much faster.
Most importantly, don’t forget that sport is fun! Whether alone, in groups or with a training partner – there’s always time for sports!
