How to get exercising
Find someting you love to do: It can be walking, stair climbing, jogging, bicycling, yoga, tai chi, gardening, weightlifting and swimming.
Don’t do it all at once: Set SMART goals: Choose a activity. Break it down into SMALL, MESURABLE, and ATTAININABLE, REASONABLE, and TIME-LIMITED steps. Gradually step it up. You don’t have to do it every day. Three or four times a week is enough.
Keep it gentle and easy: As an added bonus, gentler workouts may enhance your exercise while also decreasing your stress.
Exercise in increments: Even brief bouts of activity offer benefits. If you can’t fit in a 30-minute walk, try three 10-minute walks instead.
Interval training helps: Brief bursts (60 to 90 seconds) of intense activity at almost full effort, with a interval of a few minutes of gentle activity, is a safe, effective and efficient way of gaining many of the benefits of longer duration exercise.
Do it with a fried: Working out with a friend, co-worker or family member often brings a new level of motivation and commitment to your workouts.
Vary your routine: Doing the same thing over and over again can be boring. Interseprse aerobics with yoga, swimmimg with running or cyucling etc.
