Despite his busy schedule, Dr. Michael Acurio always makes time to engage in physical fitness exercises. He is an orthopedic surgeon by profession and has established a successful private practice in Louisiana. Being an orthopedic surgeon has also educated him on the benefits of physical fitness. Thus he likes to stay active when he has the time.
We all have reasons not to take the time to engage in physical fitness, but it comes down to time management. If we can find a chance to catch up on a favorite television show or hang out with close friends, then finding time for exercise is possible. Here’s how to get started.
Cut down on TV time
It’s easy to get drawn into watching TV for hours or visiting various sites on the Internet. However, you can set a time limit for these activities, thereby finding time in your day for exercise. Do this for a while, and exercising becomes more of a priority than screen time.
You don’t have to do everything
If you review your daily tasks carefully, there are those that someone else can handle. Perhaps it’s asking your assistant to handle some of the work tasks, or having the kids help out with making dinner. Delegate whatever you can and use that time to get healthy.
Prioritize the important things
Many fitness experts point to mornings as the best time to engage in exercise. Working out in the morning provides your body with the mental and physical energy to get through whatever the day has in store.
If you still do all these and find yourself with limited time, don’t worry. As Dr. Michael Acurio knows, exercise doesn’t have to take long. When it comes to fitness, quality trumps quantity.
