Excuse #1: I’m too busy/I don’t have time

This is the first in a series of posts that expand on a presentation I have on Slideshare called “The top excuses for not eating healthy.”

I’m sure you can already guess that I’m about to tell you that the cries of “I’m too busy” or “I don’t have time” are really just excuses!

While you may feel justified making excuses, they don’t change anything. So I’d like to help you change that!

You see, the thing is, you do have time.

The problem is that you think you don’t have time.

We all lead very busy lives these days and it’s all too easy to get caught up in the idea that you just don’t have time to cook, or find recipes, or even shop.

Do you feel like you barely make it through each week? Rushing around to and from work or school and then running errands. If you’ve got kids, then you’re running around after them too. It’s exhausting just thinking about it!

The simple truth is that the people who do live healthy lifestyles aren’t any different from you. They’re not superhuman and they’re not less busy than you are.

They simply prioritise their health and they make it happen. You’ve probably heard the saying that we make time for what’s important to us. Well, it’s true.

 “And nothing should be more valuable than your health”.  

I’m not saying that it’s always easy; it’s not. What I am saying is that it’s about choice and priorities. It’s deciding that your health is important and prioritising it.

When you eat mostly real, fresh foods every day that you’ve prepared yourself without excess additives and preservatives, you’ll have more energy to get through the day.

You can do it by being organised. Allow some time on the weekend to plan your weekly meals, go shopping and do a little bit of prep.  

It doesn’t have to be complicated, it just needs to fit your schedule. You can do it, you just need to want to!
