The good news is that for most people, it is never too late to start exercising – and in many cases, it’s good for what ails ya.
I don’t have enough time.
This is a big one and I struggle with it too. Some days I simply can’t spare the time, even though I know it will pay me back with increased energy and focus throughout the day. If finding time is your major stumbling block, here are some ideas that might help.

Often there are hidden minutes that can be reclaimed with creative thinking and pre-planning. * Schedule exercise time as you would any other important appointment. * Add physical activity to your daily routine. For example, use the stairs, park the car farther away from your destination, take Rover for an extra walk. * Take a fitness break instead of a coffee break. Research shows that as little as 10 minutes of continuous activity at a time can have significant health benefits. If you can’t manage a full hour, break it into 10-minute segments.,,,(continue)
