We all know the benefits of physical activity and the benefits that it can have on mental health but we still struggle with getting motivated to actually be active.
There are so many benefits... being active releases endorphins, it can help to relieve stress as well as putting you in a better mindset and improve your mood.
It also helps with relaxing and sleeping. So why not give it a go?
I want to encourage as many people as possible to get up and get active.
Where to begin?
Here are my top tips…..
My first Tip- Start with choosing an exercise that you love, that excites you, if you do find that exercise, it will never feel like a chore. There is no point in going out for a run if you absolutely hate it. Choose an exercise that you will feel energized by, and I guarantee, your mood will be so much better as a result.
My second tip - try and plan it in. Make yourself accountable by adding it in your diary, if it's scheduled and planned you are more likely to achieve it.
My third tip- why not make it social, grab a buddy and exercise with them, go for a walk or a jog, or a bike ride, and you can have a chat at the same time.
My fourth tip - Set yourself some goals. it's great to have goals and having your fitness goal(s) in the diary will help to keep you motivated. So many people invest in a variety of things to make themselves feel better but sadly exercise is still down the list of priorities.
Health and happiness go hand in hand... So let’s get motivated, chase the winter blues away and get ready to Spring into summer
