Whenever we don’t want to do something, we tend to find creative excuses to wriggle our way out of it. And when it comes to avoiding exercise, some of us are pretty fantastic at convincing ourselves to not hit the gym.
Here are 7 insane excuses people make for not exercising:
Everyone deserves to be healthy and fit. If you make excuses, deep-down you know that not exercising is not right. It’s never too late to gift yourself the gift of fitness. Lack of exercise and abundance of junk food consumption is an open invitation to developing/ contracting various illnesses.
Try baby steps, no one is expecting you to be an athlete in a matter of a few days. In your fitness journey, grow at your own pace. No matter how slow, but make some progress.
Whatever you do, make sure you practice moderation. And don’t be too hard on yourself. It’s okay if you fail to accomplish your goal(s), it’s okay if this one time you couldn’t resist having a slice of that chocolate cake, it’s okay that you missed your workout sessions few times a month. As long as you keep on trying, it’s okay.
Over to You
When it comes to exercising, no matter what excuse you come up, don’t make the same mistake when buying health insurance. We all need a health insurance policy to protect us from the medical expenses of known and unknown diseases and illnesses. If you don’t get rid of the unhealthy habits, you will have to pay a higher insurance premium and miss out on comprehensive insurance coverage.
As mentioned earlier, not exercising is an open invitation to so many illnesses. Some health insurance plans in India don’t cover pre-existing illnesses. It means you will not be covered for those specific illnesses (if any) and you will have to pay for the medical treatment from your own pocket.
