We’ve been told time and time again that exercise helps reduce stress, but how do you find time to workout when your days are filled with classes, studying, homework, extracurricular activities and possible a part time job?
The answer is simple, you need to organize your day and MAKE the time. If you are a auditory/visual learner check out the first video of the Fitness On Campus Series, where I discuss how I use my Planner Pad to organize my day so that I have time to go to EVERY class, work a full time job, study and maintain my healthy lifestyle via 30-1hr workouts.
For those who are primarily visual learners here is the list of steps I take to make time for fitness:
-Buy a planner
-Write all set in stone activities into your planner (classes, work schedule, meetings, sport practice)
-Take a look at your “free time” after all your set in stone activities are in your planner and pick a pocket of time where you can fit in a 20-60 minute workout.
-Schedule in your workout as another set in stone activity.
Please keep in mind that simply writing in a time to workout in your planner is not enough, you actually need to follow through and hold yourself accountable to follow through with it.
