Sometimes it is difficult to "find time" to exercise, more often than not due to letting outside things influence.
Instead, set a definitive time for exercising and post it on a calendar. In this way, you remind yourself of when you are going to be exercising and family members will know this is "YOUR" time, and that you need to be left alone to complete your exercise routine.
I often find I have trouble trying to find time to accomplish things around the house, such as cleaning, laundry, chores, maintenance. An easy way to get things done without too much effort or wasted time is to devote 15 minutes or less each day to a certain activity. For ex: dusting before bed.
It is easier than you think to quickly do a little chore and it really does not exert too much energy if you are tired. You can even quickly accomplish something in just 5 minutes. You also have the added benefit of a cleaner and more efficient house, less stress on cleaning day, and extra time.
