I like to move it! move it!

exercise3You need to exercise. I need to exercise. I moved ahead to write this blog because I  struggle with myself when I am working on too many exciting things it’s difficult to fit in time for exercise and fitness. The problem is, once you quit moving so do our endorphins and it gets a little depressing.

Here are a few tips to get you moving:

#1 Make time…no matter how busy…make the time!

We think we don’t have time but actually we do. I have found in my experience, the more time I make to move my body the more time I have in the day. Funny how that works! I think it is because I have more energy and I am sure that endorphins have something to do with it as well. The truth is, the more you move, the more active you become!
#2 Find something you love to do!

You need to do something you love. It doesn’t really matter what it is as long as you do it. I love to strength train and I love to walk. I know it sounds funny, but I get a thrill being able to lift those weights and I love how it makes me look.
You may love running. I have not learned to love it and I know it isn’t that easy I just don’t enjoy it. It is very good for you. Walking may be your thing! There is nothing like getting out and getting a little fresh air and moving your limbs. I like walking in my neighborhood where I can wave at the neighbors and feel connected which is like getting a double whammy of healthy!
#3 Pair it with something you love!

You can even do things you don’t love to do. However, these are the hardest. That is why you need to pair it up with something you do love to do. I know some of you who are reading this know what I mean. The thing that I am trying to say, is that if you choose something you don’t like to do and have a higher purpose you reach new heights of satisfaction you would never have known otherwise.
Experiment and find what is right for you. Some people like to play. If that is you then join a basketball team or perhaps a volleyball team. Sometimes if you pair it with being social then it doesn’t feel like exercise. Dance is exercise too! Pair it with romance!
#4 Clarify what you want to achieve

Do you want to lose weight, de-stress, build strength, improve your golf game, rebuild your knees? If you need to get to the grocery store, you have 3 choices, walk, ride your bike or drive. If you want to rebuild your knees, you are not going to pick lunges well that just doesn’t make sense. If you can’t figure it out, don’t be afraid to hire a professional trainer. They have been taught to know the things that you do not. They know what you can do that will best achieve your goals. You can hire them for one visit to make a plan or you can hire them for a few to show you how or long term to build on your success.

#5 Make an appointment with yourself for exercise

Schedule it into your day. The reason I say this is because, if you show up you will do it.

What’s your favorite type of exercise?  Please share….

Be Fit,
