How to Fit Exercise into a Busy Schedule

For those of you not involved in sports, there are a ton of other obligations that take time out of your day. Especially in your teens, exercise is very important for your health. Only recently I’ve begun exercising regularly again. With Chorus, SAT Class, Work, Homework, and my friends and boyfriend, it’s hard to fit it in. But here’s how I committed myself to exercising every day: 1.  Treat it like a daily routine. You do homework every day, because it’s part of your responsibility. Treat working out like homework. But, have fun while you do it. 2. It doesn’t have to be a long time. I run on my treadmill for 15 minutes a day. If I have time, I do other things. But commit yourself to at least 15 to 20 minutes of exercise. 3. Grab a buddy.  Yesterday Michelle and I went running (/walking) in the park. My boyfriend and I are going to go running together in the summer. A buddy will give you motivation 🙂 Remember to make it fun.
