Play Tip No. 1: stop saying you don’t have time!

By Published On: October 15th, 2021

Establishing your own “Habit of PLAY” can be simple if you approach exercise with a “get to” versus “have to” attitude. 

Yes, it’s true, getting healthy and fit can be fun!

When you need some extra motivation, especially as we head into the darker months of the year, I’ve got you covered.


Over the next little while, I’m bringing you some practical tips so you will have a complete toolbox to find the time for PLAY (exercise), even when you think you can’t! 

Play Tip No. 1: Stop saying you don’t have time!

You DON’T need an hour. That’s how trainers get paid: by the hour.

Over time, the fitness industry has convinced everyone that the only way to get healthy is to join a gym and do lengthy workouts. 

This is so unfortunate because it means people feel like they are failing themselves. This failure leads to inactivity… And inactivity is killing people.

Unless you are training for a specific sport or event, global experts agree that what you DO need is 20 minutes minimum every day (or 150 minutes a week) to keep healthy. 

The excellent news is PLAY doesn’t have to be done all at once.

The perfect combination of getting those movement minutes done is entirely up to you.  

One way my clients like to approach is to insert four, five-minute PLAY breaks throughout the day!⠀They can each be different or all the same.  

Prioritizing the great outdoors is a great place to start. Did you know that spending 20 minutes playing in a park can make you happier!?

Yup, you can read about it here.  

Or get some chores done – vacuuming counts, and so does gardening!

Whatever movement brings you joy, makes you sweat a little, and have fun!

Play on!
