You said today’s the day. Running shoes awaiting the sweet slap of pavement sit by the door. Earphones and athletic clothes lounge on the dresser, ready for the workout ahead.
YET. Somehow all those signals and reminders didn’t motivate you to get moving. We push it off and push it off, leaving it to be tomorrow’s chore.
Working out feels out of reach to so many people. What people tend to forget is that stay fit is for you… not to impress your super fit cousin or compare yourself to a godlike celebrity. Harvard Medical School states that a good workout “reduces levels of the body’s stress hormones.… [and] stimulates the production of endorphins, chemicals in the brain that are the body’s natural painkillers and mood elevators.” Exercise makes you feel better, physically and mentally.
There are so many reasons to get moving. So, stop making excuses. Put down that slice of delicious cake. Strap in for a proper fight against the excuses that hold us back from getting fit!
No, you just haven’t tried everything. There are so many ways to keep moving. There must be something out there that you’d like. It’s all about trying things to see what fits. Maybe accompany a friend or family member on their fitness ventures. It doesn’t matter what it is. Keep an open mind and you’ll find something you like to do.
Here are just a few activities to try from the top of my head:
HealthLink has a pretty comprehensive list if you are looking for more things to try!
Ah, that’s unfortunate for some activities, but that doesn’t have to limit you. Memberships can be expensive (and are quite complicated right now). Perhaps that means investing in your own equipment or finding cheaper ways to stay in shape. You may not have a fancy dancy Super Fit Trainer 3000, but you can get some weights and resistance bands. It keeps you moving and leaves plenty of room for different types of exercises!
Trainers. That’s another story, but you can find a slew of online personal trainers. They adapt to your ability and find ways to suit exercise for you.
Don’t have the mula for a personal trainer? Check YouTube. Ask your friends. You never know what you’ll come up with. Personally, I have found a lot of wonderful yoga and Pilates instructors online. I attend those classes whenever and wherever I want, which is a huge plus! Many of them give hints and tips as you go, so you don’t feel awkward and alone, working out in your living room.
You can always make time for you. That’s it. If your body is not functioning the way you like, then try to make changes to your schedule for fitness. Try different times in the day to get some movement in, even if it’s a 15-minute walk outside. A little exercise is better than none y’all.
Now, that’s a you thing. But hey, if you picked this blog post out of the sea of other blog posts AND made it all the way to the bottom,… I assume you’re looking for a challenge. So why not? Give it a go. Figure out what works and doesn’t work for you. A very wise saying comes to my mind when talking about this… What was it again? Oh yeah…
JUST DO IT. 🏀⚾🎾🏐⚽🏈
