Get Moving and Stay Moving: 3 Tips To Beat the Exercise Blues

One of the simplest and most effective ways to bring down blood glucose levels, cut the risk of cardiovascular disease, and improve overall health and well-being is physical fitness and exercise. Yet, in our increasingly sedentary world, where almost every essential task can be performed online, from the driver’s seat, or with a phone call, exercising and being physically active can be a challenge for many people.

Do you struggle with staying consistent with your workouts? If you do, you’re not alone! 

In reality, everyone can benefit from regular exercise, yet research shows only 30% of the United States adult population get the recommended thirty minutes of daily physical activity, five days a week and 25% are not active at all.

Physical Inactivity Brings Risks

Watching hours of TV and not moving our bodies has contributed to

Physical inactivity is thought to be one of the key reasons for the surge of type 2 diabetes, hypertension and obesity in America. The good news is, it is never too late to get your body moving! 

Therefore, use the following three tips below to get moving today! 

Shifting your mindset and choosing to see exercise as a privilege instead of a chore can help you see exercising differently.

Tip #1: Shift Your Mindset:

Shifting your mindset and choosing to see exercise as a privilege rather than a chore, can help you see the gift of movement.  When you choose to exercise, thank your body for all that it does for you. 

Tip#2: Make Exercise Fun:

If you find exercise that you feel is fun, you will more than likely do more of it. If you like to dance, find a dance class. If you enjoy running, find a running club and run!  Regardless of what physical activity you choose, make it fun and enjoyable.

Tip # 3: Do It for Yourself:

When you make the decision to exercise, exercise for yourself and the numerous mental, physical and emotional benefits of exercise versus doing it to please someone else. Exercising for someone else is often unsustainable and not enjoyable. Be clear about your personal why! 

Getting Fit Doesn’t Have to be Complicated!

Whether you exercise outdoors or at home, committing to at least 3 days per week starting off can yield numerous health benefits.

In a world where being busy has become the norm, making time to stay physically active on a regular basis may seem impossible. However, by shifting your mindset to see exercise as a privilege, finding physical activities that you love and exercising for yourself you can make exercise and physical activity a regular part of your daily life.
