    An Excuse Not to Exercise

    Don't have time to exercise? You're not alone. WebMD guest expert Henry S. Lodge, MD, says the No. 1 excuse he hears is people are too busy to exercise.

    But don't think of exercise as optional, says Lodge. Think of it as an important part of staying healthy. Plus, when you exercise, you're more motivated and effective. So it makes you better at what you do the rest of your day. For many busy people, morning exercise is a great idea because it gets it out of the way. The key is to set a routine and stick with it.

    How do you find time to exercise? What motivates you to move?
