When People Tell Me “I Don’t Have Time to Work Out”

EVERYONE can make the time

Everyone can make time if it’s actually important to you.

I’m not going to let you off the hook here. It’s my job to be the truth teller.

You do have time, you just don’t make working out a priority. It doesn’t matter if you allocate 20 minutes or 60 minutes, you must make the time for working out.

I get up at 3:20am – Monday through Friday. Is that a bit extreme? Yeah, probably, but I’m not asking you to get up at 3:20am.

What I am asking for is to get up 30-60 minutes earlier. A mild change for a massive payoff. This 30-60 minute window is dedicated YOU time that is essential for both your physical and mental health.


Set a bedtime

Set a bedtime and stick to it.

This allows you to consistently execute the new morning routine. If you go to bed at 9pm one night, then 10:30pm then next, then 11:30pm the next, you’re setting yourself up to fall off the tracks.

Setting up a few boundaries will give you the best possible chance at succeeding.


No alcohol during the week

Alcohol kills any and all morning routine motivation. It’s just a fact.

If you’re drinking 2-3+ times a week – especially during the week – you’re fighting an uphill battle that you can’t win. It’s a form of self-sabotage.

Alcohol puts a damper on motivation AND makes it difficult for your body to recover.


Pick something

Pick an activity or something that you can look forward to each day.

This new-found time is about to blow your mind. For example, I love lifting weights, learning from an audiobook or podcast, and challenging myself with walking lunges for my conditioning.

I’m bettering myself both physically and mentally. What’s your version?


The time is made. The boundaries are set. The alcohol is in check. The activity is picked. You’re now addicted to feeling good.


“The person who acquires the ability to take full possession of their own mind may take possession of anything else to which they are justly entitled.”
