Making Exercise A Part Of Your Life
Posted by Nancy on August 31, 2012
While it is true that there are millions out there who are profound exercise enthusiasts there are also far too many of us who have not made exercise a part of our lives. Even though it is not January and the beginning of a new year, it is still a great time to make the commitment to begin some type of exercise program. If you don’t relish the idea of jogging or putting on a pair of boxing gloves or hitting the hardwood in your basketball jersey for a pick-up game, no problem. There are dozens upon dozens of options when it comes to physical activities. Even if you have various physical limitations, there are still ways to get exercise into your daily life. The first step is to make the commitment and then like a well-known ad program states, just “do it”. The first step is always the hardest but it is the most important. Start slowly. Don’t think you have to become a marathon runner in your first month as that is obviously very unrealistic. Make a plan and then stick to it. Once you get over the hurdle of those first few weeks where you may have to sometimes force yourself to lace up the gym shoes or climb onto the bicycle, it will become much easier. Habits are formed before you know it and it will seem normal and automatic to get going with your program. You may be a person who enjoys going solo on their exercise routines, whether biking, swimming or just plain walking but for many, finding an exercise partner seems to help a great deal in the motivation department. Whatever exercise you choose to embark upon or however you decide to accomplish it, just make it a priority because it really will become an important and beneficial part of you life.
