Perfect Timing

Posted by terrepruitt on June 16, 2009

In my last post, I mentioned “exercise mojo“, I was saying that actually referring to a exercise schedule.  Most people need to make working out a habit.  They need to put it in their schedule and then do it.  If you have it scheduled you are more likely to do it.

Well, I believe, from what I have been hearing around San Jose and the Bay Area, that the last of the schools are finally out.  And if not, they will be this week and everyone’s schedule is all in jumble.  Well, since a new schedule is going to have to be instituted into your life, you might as well schedule in some exercise.  Right?  It is a perfect time.  If you are having to change things anyway, just shove some movement in there.  Now, of course, honestly, I would like you to add MY classes or something with me into your schedule, that would be awesome.  But I am really more interested in you getting healthy, so I think anything you add would be great.

Most parents pick up their kids from school now-a-days, right?  Why not just keep that time that is allotted for picking up the kids and add a walk into your day.  You can even walk with your child (if it is a teenager you will probably have to promise to stay a few feet back).  Or workout to a DVD, do some calisthenics, run, jog, do yoga, anything.  Now is the time add it.  Then it might even be a smooth transition since you are already having to rearrange your day, it won’t be that big of a deal.  Ha!  How do you like that?  Doesn’t that sound totally logical?  Isn’t that a good idea?  Wouldn’t you call that perfect timing?

So this tactic can work for any change of scheduling, right?  Be it school letting out, or a new work schedule, or school going back into session, whatever, if you are already changing why not take the opportunity to add some change for the better?
