Time management

Time….. if we could buy more of it we would. Days seem to fly by with work, family and house hold chores. Exercise seems to be the one thing that gets left behind, its easy to say as an excuse “I have no time”. If you split a day into 20 minute pieces of pie, there are 72 pieces available. If you just put aside one piece of pie, 20 minutes of your day towards exercise you are on the right track to taking responsibility of your health.

Here is an example of a day. Everyone’s day is different with varying work and family commitments, and sleeping routines. Have a go yourself and workout your time schedule. You will see that it is possible to set aside one piece of pie for exercise, if not 3 which would be 1 hour of exercise a day.

1 piece = 20 minutes

Your day pieces time
exercise 1 20 mins
sleep 24 8 hours
work 24 8 hours
travel 3 1 hour
eating/preparation 6 2 hours
family time 6 2 hours
personal hygiene 3 1 hour
leisure 5 1hr40mins
 Total 72 24 hours
