Written by TeamIdentity

Living better is a choice, and people come up with many excuses to avoid living their best lives. There are probably a million excuses out there, but there are a few common ones worth pointing out. By pointing them out, people will find it harder to make these types of excuses to choose to live better.

Living better is a choice, and people come up with many excuses to avoid living their best lives. There are probably a million excuses out there, but there are a few common ones worth pointing out. By pointing them out, people will find it harder to make these types of excuses to choose to live better.

1. Too Hard

One common excuse is that living better is too hard or challenging. The problem with that excuse is that it’s a little self-centered. There are no superheroes out there; everyone has the same limitations and weaknesses as any other human being. Living better isn’t especially hard for one person and not the next.

Living better can be challenging sometimes, but it’s something people throughout the world have figured out and achieved. This is not a great excuse, so try not to use it.

2. Not Enough Time

Another popular excuse that some use deals with time. Some folks who don’t want to live a better life end up saying they would if they had a little more time. The truth is there are several late-night gyms in Denver and other major cities, as well as smaller communities.

That means someone with a busy life can still go to the gym whenever they have some free time. Even if that person’s schedule is full in the morning, there’s still time to go to the gym at night. If for some reason a person doesn’t have time during the week, there’s still the weekend.

3. Too Expensive

Money is a problem for a lot of people. Living better can seem rather expensive, but that’s not a rule. It may seem like everyone is spending money on trainers, dieticians, on organic food, but if a person wants to live better, they can cut back. A trainer isn’t necessary. There are trainer videos online that can be viewed for free. Gyms are vital, but a person could also go to the park or local track and field, which is entirely free.

Organic food can be found in typical grocery stores now, so it doesn’t have to be expensive. Keep in mind that bulk food is still cheap even if it’s organic, like rice or beans. Living better can be costly, but it could also be affordable; people just have to figure out what living better looks like for them.

4. Not Flexible Enough

People love saying they aren’t flexible enough to change their lifestyles and start the journey to fitness. The person making this excuse might feel overweight, or maybe they feel like they’re too old. Some exercises could injure a person who isn’t as flexible as others, but there are always ways around.

The reality is many low-impact exercises for folks with mobility issues. Yoga, tai-chi, and even just walking are all excellent choices for folks with mobility issues. On top of that, changing one’s diet doesn’t put anyone in danger, and diet is a big step towards living better.

5. No Support

Some people have friends who aren’t interested in living better. This may seem like a good excuse for people who don’t have any support in their lives. The problem is that social media platforms and forums exist, and they can connect people to others trying to change their lives. People can also join groups in their neighborhoods to make some physical connections.

These people may seem like strangers at first, but they are meeting up because they want to live better and support each other. Given enough time, these folks will connect and make friends.

These are some common excuses people give to avoid living better. The goal should always be to live better. Hopefully, these points help people get out of their own way because people are their own worst enemies.
