Get Moving for Your Health
You want to get in shape, but how do you begin? As this video discusses, the key to beginning a long-lasting physical fitness routine is starting slowly and choosing an activity you enjoy.
In today’s busy world, people have many excuses for why they aren’t exercising. Yet, even exercising for 20 minutes a few days a week can put you on the road to maintaining your physical fitness. To better ensure that you will continue exercising, do something that you enjoy. If possible, start exercising with friends, family, or coworkers. Use them as your support network. For further motivation, write down your physical fitness goals in a personal journal and document your efforts toward them. Once you begin exercising, you’ll soon enjoy its many benefits, such as greater energy, lower weight, and higher self-esteem.
