Angela Marshall, a life and weight-loss coach, says this excuse is easy to overcome.

You just have to examine it from anew perspective.

“If someone offered you $100,000 to commit to exercise, would you do it?” she asks.

“If you said yes, then you can fit it in – you’ve just chosen not to.”

It’s also worth noting that you don’t have to complete hour-long workout sessions each day to reap healthy benefits.

Ten-minute bursts of walking, stair climbing or squats performed several times a week can help you sleep more soundly and feel better.
