This may be a tip that makes you shudder. Of course, you know you should exercise, but you can’t stand the thought of it or can’t even begin to figure out where you’ll work it into your schedule.
Find a sport or exercise game in which you love. Yes I said love. I do not enjoy running on a treadmill, I would rather watch paint dry then to step foot on a treadmill. I am a social person, I love to talk so I found tennis. I can talk while I play, its competitive and after 2 hours I’m exhausted. So I started to make tennis a part of my weekly routine, by joining a team, now I am held accountable to my teammates.
You need to determine a time of day when you are most likely to follow through. For me, it’s first thing in the morning. In the middle of the day there’s the inconvenience of having to shower again. And at the end of the day, I’m too tired to think about exercise (aside from a leisurely walk after dinner).
Once you decide when you’re most likely to exercise, add it to your daily routine. Schedule around it. Shift commitments around to accommodate it.
