When it comes to keeping fit or taking exercise, most of us know we shoild be doing something about it if we want to stay healthy and in shape. However, just as many of us are hit by some mysterious paralysis which stops us doing what we know we should.
For many this is simply due to a lack of inspiration or it could simply be we don’t know where to start
So anything that can turn exercising and/or dieting into something enjoyable, rather than a chore is to be embraced.
Why not exerecise to your favourite music, for example? Whether its the radio, your iPad or even the music channels on your TV, listening to upbeat music when working out can ease any feelings of boredom and help the time pass more easily – and productively
Exercising on your own can also be difficult at times. If you have some like-minded friends, why not get together once or twice a week for an informal exercise class. Just as with music, it helps pass the time and can give you a bit more motivation when your spirits or energy may be flagging
It is also a great idea to vary your exercise programme a little so as to prevent boredom. Luckily, there is no shortage of resources to help you, whether you are on the lookout for a new exercise regime or perhaps even some advice on diet to go hand-in-hand with your workout.
