Yup, it’s the last day of my Spring Reset series & it finishes with 3 tips about exercise. Regular exercise has so many positive benefits. It can help reduce health risks such as heart disease & high blood pressure, but also relieves stress, boosts mood & improves sleep. What is not to love?
#1 Walk your way to good health
Often people believe they must adopt a rigorous exercise routing to jumpstart their weight loss journey. If you haven’t exercised in a while this can be daunting, so I often suggest a 30minute walk each day. It’s easy, it’s affordable & it can be done anytime of the day, inside or outside.
Can’t make 30 minutes work for you, try doing 2 x 15-minute sessions instead. The secret is to just get moving.
#2 Buddy up
Sometimes, it can be hard to stick to a routine. If that is you, perhaps you need to invite a friend to help you stay on track. Yup, buddy up to help you achieve those goals, keep you motivated; & for the bonus there is often a lot of laughter involved too (which is great for the soul!).
#3 Include incidental exercise
Exercise has a huge impact on both our physical & mental health, so get active. It doesn’t need to be a full gym session, just make sure you are moving regularly & getting your heart rate up.
Need some ideas?
Take the stairs rather than the lift or elevator; ride your bike instead of taking the car; perhaps go to the park & kick the ball around with friends. Maybe take a walk around the block at lunchtime, or when you are waiting for the kettle to boil, march on the spot. Try an impromptu dance party with tunes blasting out, or even a hula hoop or hopscotch session in the yard. Do whatever works for you, there are loads of options. With any exercise the trick is to find something you look forward to doing, that makes you happy – that way you are more likely to stick with it.
And lastly a bonus tip. Support.
Having a group of friends or family members that support you in your weight & wellness goals is critical for success. Surrounding yourself with positive people, who make you feel good about creating a healthy lifestyle. It will help you stay motivated & on track
You determine the people you spend your time with. Lots of people contribute to your life – the friends, the cheerleaders, the coaches, the advisors, the teachers & the role models. Choose wisely.
That, my friends, is a wrap on a big week of tips for weight loss that will also help you generally on your health journey, every day. Of course, there is more information available on the Consciously Nutritious socials.
