Busy as we may be, we have less trouble finding time for television, social networking, or even dull household tasks, Rodriguez observes, because there simply aren't the same steep psychological barriers to those activities.
If you want to exercise, you'll make the time. We interviewed psychologists, exercise scientists, celebrity trainers, authors, and busy everyday people to get a handle on the 25 most promising strategies.
1. Make a plan. "The best way to make time for exercise is to have a written plan," says Chris Evert, 18-time Grand Slam tennis champion. "Decide on the best time for exercise in your schedule and actually enter it into your computer or cell-phone calendar as a repeat event. This way it shows up daily and there's less chance of you scheduling something during that time.
Also, when you check your schedule in the morning, you'll see it there and form a mental picture of when and how you'll be exercising that day, which helps you stay motivated."
2. Subdivide your to-do list. Rather than making one long to-do list you'll never complete, divide your list into three categories, advises Lisa Druxman, MA, exercise counselor and founder of the Stroller Strides and Mama Wants Her Body Back programs. "It's not enough to get things done," she says. "You need to get the right things done. It's OK to have dirty clothes in your hamper. It's OK if you don't read every email the moment you receive it. It's not OK to cheat your health."
Druxman suggests the following to-do list makeover:
Having trouble deciding which to-dos are most important? "Think about the things that will have the most impact, not just today, but a year from now," Druxman says.
3. Find five minutes. Even if your day is packed with meetings and other commitments, you absolutely can eke out five minutes for yourself, says Simmons. And that simple act of self-care has the potential to change your life. "I tell people it's OK to start very, very small." A five-minute walk now can easily turn into daily 30-minute walks a few weeks from now. "You have to start somewhere," he says.
4. Limit screen time. Don't aimlessly surf cable channels or the Internet, says Rodriguez. That's a surefire way to waste time you could be spending in more active ways. Before you sit down, set a time limit (consider keeping a kitchen timer nearby to alert you when time's up).
Most of us occasionally watch shows we don't love because we're bored, notes Franklin Antoian, CPT, founder of iBodyFit.com. "Consider trading just 30 minutes of that low-value television time for exercise," he says. "My guess is you won't miss it."
The Missouri Compromise was an agreement passed in 1820 between the pro-slavery and anti-slavery factions in the United States Congress, involving primarily the regulation of slavery in the western territories. It prohibited slavery in the former Louisiana Territory north of the parallel 36°30′ north except within the boundaries of the proposed state of Missouri. Prior to the agreement, the House of Representatives had refused to accept this compromise, and a conference committee was appointed.
A bill to enable the people of the Missouri Territory to draft a constitution and form a government preliminary to admission into the Union came before the House of Representatives in Committee of the Whole, on February 13, 1819. James Tallmadge of New York offered an amendment (named the Tallmadge Amendment), that forbade further introduction of slaves into Missouri, and mandated that all children of slave parents born in the state after its admission should be free at the age of 25. The committee adopted the measure and incorporated it into the bill as finally passed on February 17, 1819, by the house. The United States Senate refused to concur with the amendment, and the whole measure was lost.
For disease prevention and health maintenance, berries of all colors have “emerged as champions.” Research has focused mainly on cancer prevention and treatment. Studies show that the anticancer effects of berries are partially mediated through their abilities to counteract, reduce, and also repair damage resulting from oxidative stress and inflammation. Berries may also have many other positive effects, such as boosting detoxifying enzymes.
Washington, August 17 (ANI): Researchers led by one of Indian origin have found that the popular Indian spice turmeric packs more than just flavour and shows promise in fighting devastating viruses.
