5 Super Simple Exercise Tips

5 Super Simple Exercise Tips

 

With each New Year comes the determination to begin exercising. Perhaps even you made a promise to add more exercise into your day. Take a look at these tips if your efforts at exercising are not going as well as you had planned. They might help get you back on track.

Tip # 1– Do Something You Enjoy

Exercise doesn’t have to mean spending hours at the gym peddling away on a stationary bike. It doesn’t mean you have to spend money on exercise gadgets you will likely never use, either. Anything you do to get your body moving is going to be better than doing nothing. Walking is an easy exercise that you can do just about anywhere, in any climate. Bike riding, dancing, gardening, weight lifting, swimming, playing a favorite sport, house cleaning and even playing in the yard with your children are just some of the ways you can add exercise into your daily routine.

Tip # 2– Schedule Time for Exercise

As you would a doctor or a meeting appointment, sometimes the only way to make time to exercise is to put it on your daily schedule. We’ve all got busy lives and we’re often so busy taking care of others that we never seem to make time for ourselves. You’re more likely to do it once exercise becomes part of your daily To-Do list. Some people have only a certain time during the day available for exercise while others will have to vary the time each day. Some people need a nudge and for them, exercising with a friend is a good solution. Choose whichever way works best for you. Just remember to actually go and do it!

Tip # 3– Remember that Exercise Can Energize

Even though you might feel too tired to exercise, give it a try anyway. You might be surprised to find how energized you feel while you’re at it and afterwards, when you’re finished. Exercise is a great stress-reliever too and if you know anything about stress, you know that it is one of the body’s biggest energy-sappers.

Tip # 4– Don’t be Afraid to Mix it up

Like anything that is done over and over again, exercise can become mundane. You’re less likely to keep at it when you get bored with exercising. To keep from getting bored with your workout routine, change it. Try cycling if you’re tired of walking. Try alternating this with cardiovascular exercises throughout the week if you’re into weight lifting. Go bowling or play a game of tennis once in a while, and if you find you enjoy these types of activities, join up with a team.

Tip # 5– Always Begin by Warming up

Regardless of the type of exercise you choose, it is very important that you begin each session by warming up your muscles. Stretching helps prevent damage to muscle tissue and it gets your blood flowing. It gets your heart pumping, too. Just five minutes is all it takes to get your exercise session off to a good start.
