Ep 111 Ditch the Excuses: Commit to Regular Exercise for a Healthier Midlife

Whether you're motivated by health or financial reasons, commit to regular exercise. No excuses!

Welcome to my takeaway episode for my conversation with Heike Yates in Episode 110.

Listen to this episode for a challenge to commit (or recommit) to regular exercise to enjoy the benefits. Here is a short summary. 

1️⃣ Regular Exercise = Financial Savings 💪
Consistent exercise not only enhances your physical and mental well-being but also saves you money by reducing productivity loss and medical expenses.

2️⃣ Mental Wellness Through Exercise 🧠
Physical workouts have a profound impact on your mental health.

3️⃣ Synergy of Nutrition and Exercise 🥦💚
For a healthy lifestyle, combine a diet from “nature’s table” or reliably sourced meats and fish.

My key takeaway from my conversation with Heike Yates is the importance of making time for exercise.  It’s essential to commit to integrating regular exercise into your life.

Two Scenarios for Integrating Exercise

Scenario One: You’re busy and you lack the discipline to exercise.
If this is you, acknowledge it without guilt. Find an accountability partner, perhaps for early morning workouts or gym sessions.

Scenario Two: You don’t have a spare minute in your day.
Heike, in episode 110, mentioned integrating “exercise bites” throughout the day. Consider taking longer walking routes, doing chair push-ups, or desk squats.

Whether you’re motivated by health or financial reasons, make regular exercise a commitment. No excuses!  As I often say on the podcast: if you believe you can or can’t, you’re right in both instances.

If you’re already committed to regular exercise, share this with someone who needs to hear this message.
