Many people have a hard time sticking to their exercise program. It is common for people to start and stop several exercise programs in a single year. Many people do try extremely hard initially, exhaust themselves, and feel defeated, and quit. You can change this crash and burn exercise habit with the following three suggestions.

Three Simple Motivation Tips

1) Make realistic fitness goals based on your present lifestyle. Evaluate the amount of time you can realistically spend in an exercise program over the next year. Ask yourself these questions:

  • How many days per week can I exercise?
  • How many minutes per day can I spare?

Be Good to Yourself Develop an exercise program that can be used within your personal time available. Learn simple exercises you can do when you're in a time crunch at your desk during breaks or other parts of the day.

2) Demonstrate the Short Term Results. You can't, or shouldn't, lose 10 pounds in a week and you certainly can't develop muscle mass in 2 weeks. However, there are some results that do happen fast.

  • Resting heart rate improves.
  • Energy levels increase.
  • Stress response improves.
  • Improved sleep.

3) Reward Yourself! Develop a list of rewards you will give yourself for meeting participation goals. Do this on a weekly and monthly basis.

Astonishing things occur when you start to align with your Self and associate to your higher purpose in the world. You'll discover much support. You're never alone on this journey.

Did You Know?

Physical Activity Helps Ward Off Future Pain. Study participants who reported exercising three or more times per week were 28 percent less likely to have chronic widespread musculoskeletal complaints (MSC) 11 years later than people who exercised once a week or less, according to a study of chronic widespread MSC.

Symptoms of the disorder include having pain or stiffness for three or more months during the past year and for 15 or more days in the past month. Areas identified in the study included the neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, wrists and hands, hips, knees and ankles and feet. Your doctor can advise you about exercises that may help relieve pain if you already have MSC.
