Ken and Jen’s Fitness Forum
To take care of the ones you love you have to first take care of yourself. Exercise is essential to a well-rounded lifestyle. No matter your current fitness level, you can start a workout routine and become fitter and healthier!
SIMPLE MOVEMENTS FOR A FITTER YOU. Park further away from your destination to walk a few extra minutes, bike ride to do errands, take the stairs. Little extra movements throughout the day have big positive effects on your health.
HE HARDEST PART IS GETTING DRESSED. People have a tough time working into a regular exercise regime because they overthink. Instead of dwelling over it, just do it! Decide the night before, lay out your clothes and first thing in the morning, put them on. If you’re feeling sluggish tell yourself you’re just going to exercise for 10 minutes. Once you get started you’ll probably go longer, and if not, you’ve accomplished what you set out to…something’s always better than nothing!
MAKE IT A RITUAL. Exercise is time to do something positive for the body. No matter what physical activities you’re engaging in, clear your mind and focus on the movement of your action for the duration of the workout. You’ll finish feeling refreshed and calm.
KEEP THE HABIT. Schedule your workouts. If something is booked in your agenda ahead of time you’re more likely to stick to it.
COMMIT. Plan to get outdoors with friends or buy a 30-day package at a gym. When the stakes are up you’re more likely to follow through.
USE IT AS STRESS RELIEF. Nix the potato chips. Next time you’re stressed go walk outside or do jumping jacks. Exercise calms your mind by releasing “feel-good” endorphins, making you feel happy and relaxed.
EXERCISE IN GROUP SITUATIONS. People who exercise in group situations are more likely to stick to their fitness routine. Organize a jogging club or take indoor cycling classes for extra motivation and support.
STAY POSITIVE. You’re going to have to build up and will probably be sore after. Instead of focusing on what’s hard, track your progress. Notice how as you stick with a routine you’re able to do it with more ease.
