Exercise is an essential part of any healthy lifestyle. It can help you lose weight, build strength and endurance, and even reduce stress. But it can be hard to find the motivation to get started—and then keep going. So how do you create an exercise routine that you can stick with in the long run?
We’ve got some tips for you!
The key to starting any successful exercise routine is to start small and build up gradually. Start by setting realistic goals for yourself that are achievable within your current fitness level. Don’t try to do too much too soon or else you may burn out before seeing results. For example, if you’re just getting started, start by doing three days of walking or light jogging per week, rather than jumping into a full-blown HIIT workout right away. You can always increase the intensity later on once your body is better adapted and conditioned for exercise.
Mix It Up
It’s important to mix up your exercises so that your body doesn’t get used to doing the same thing over and over again. This will also make it more enjoyable so that you don’t get bored with your routine. If running isn’t something you enjoy, try swimming or biking instead! You could also try incorporating strength training into your routine with weights or resistance bands for added benefit. The options are endless!
Schedule It In
If you really want to make sure that you stick with your new habit, set aside time each week specifically dedicated to exercising. Block off certain hours each day where working out is a priority and plan ahead so that nothing gets in the way of those times (e.g., plan meals around it). Scheduling in time for exercise will make it easier for you to stay on track and ensure that it becomes part of your weekly routine.
