Tips for Maintaining Exercise Wellness

Start Slow. There is no need to burn yourself out on your first workout. All you need to reap several of the benefits of exercise is a 30 min moderate intensity exercise per day (MayoClinic, 2008).

Stay Consistent. Schedule a time to exercise everyday. Research has shown that one of the keys to staying in shape is to stay consistent (MayoClinic, 2008). Everyone misses a day now and then but don’t be discouraged. Every workout counts and the more consistent you are, the better your results will be.

Have FUN!! Play a sport, exercise with others, listen to a new album or podcast, try yoga or boxing…This list goes on! There are so many ways to make exercise enjoyable and exciting. The best part is, the more you enjoy it, the easier it is to make it a part of your daily routine.
