I hear every day from potential clients that they don't have the time or money to work out three times a week. I completely understand that committing to an exercise program is a difficult step to make.
But, these are the same people who are glued to their phone (an average of 3.75 hours a day) and are up to date on all the latest shows on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc. (an average of 4.0 hours a day). Not to mention that they HAVE to get their daily fix of caffeine and sugar from Starbucks (an average $5.90 per visit.) on the way into the office.
How can you argue with that kind of thinking?
Well, cold, hard facts sometimes work!
A one hour workout is 4.0% of your day. Yep - 4.0%. Seeing that the average American spends 3.5 hours/day staring at their smart phone, you would think that getting a workout in would be more important than keeping up on the latest TikTok trend.
If you took 45 minutes from your phone use and 45 minutes from your TV watching... you'd have more than enough time to drive to the gym, get in an hour, and then drive home. And still have 7.5 hours to split between your phone and the TV!
Your priorities, what you consider to be important or vital, will determine how you live your life.
If you prioritize eating good, nutritious food, you will avoid most of the causes of death in the United States.
If you prioritize getting adequate and high quality sleep, you will avoid a host of maladies as well as improve your day to day life.
If you prioritize wasting your life with your face stuck in your phone, and waste your money on sugar and caffeine, you will most definitely improve... nothing.
