HOW TO GET BACK INTO EXERCISE



Getting back into exercise after a period of inactivity can be challenging, but with the right approach and mindset, you can ease back into a routine that works for you. Here are some tips to help you get started:


  1. Set realistic goals: Start by setting achievable and realistic goals based on your current fitness level and schedule. Whether it's aiming to exercise for a certain number of days per week, increasing your daily step count, or working towards a specific fitness milestone, setting clear goals can help keep you motivated and focused.

  2. Start slowly: It's important to ease back into exercise gradually, especially if you've been inactive for a while. Begin with low-impact activities such as walking, swimming, or cycling at a comfortable pace. Listen to your body and gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts as you feel ready.

  3. Choose activities you enjoy: Find activities that you genuinely enjoy doing, whether it's dancing, hiking, playing sports, or practicing yoga. When you enjoy the exercise, you're more likely to stick with it long term.

  4. Mix it up: Incorporate a variety of exercises into your routine to keep things interesting and prevent boredom. Try different types of workouts, such as cardio, strength training, flexibility exercises, and mind-body activities, to target different muscle groups and keep your workouts varied.

  5. Schedule it in: Treat exercise like any other important appointment and schedule it into your day. Whether it's first thing in the morning, during your lunch break, or in the evening, find a time that works best for you and make it a priority.

  6. Find a workout buddy: Exercising with a friend or family member can make workouts more enjoyable and provide accountability. Having someone to share your fitness journey with can help keep you motivated and committed to your goals.

  7. Listen to your body: Pay attention to how your body feels during and after exercise. If you experience pain, dizziness, or excessive fatigue, take a break and rest. It's normal to feel some muscle soreness when starting a new exercise routine, but if you're experiencing persistent or severe pain, consult with a healthcare professional.

  8. Stay consistent: Consistency is key when it comes to building a healthy exercise habit. Aim to exercise regularly, even if it's just for a short duration or at a lower intensity. Over time, you'll gradually build strength, endurance, and confidence in your abilities.

  9. Celebrate your progress: Be proud of yourself for taking steps towards a healthier lifestyle and celebrate your progress along the way. Whether it's reaching a fitness milestone, sticking to your workout schedule for a week straight, or simply feeling more energized and positive, acknowledge and celebrate your achievements.


Remember that getting back into exercise is a journey, and it's okay to encounter setbacks along the way. Be patient with yourself, stay positive, and keep moving forward towards your goals.
