Make it enjoyable

The best way to keep active is to do something that you enjoy doing. There are thousands of ways in which you can exercise. Of course, enjoyment is a very personal thing, so it’s important to find something that suits you.

  • Exercise with a friend or a group of people, if it suits you
  • Buy a personal stereo, exercise whilst listening to music (or a talking book).
  • Talk to a friend on your mobile whilst peddling an exercise bike
  • Relax for half an hour after exercising
  • If walking/jogging/cycling, take alternative routes to make things more interesting, get to know your local environment better
  • Take your dog out for a walk every day (remember – animals need exercise too!). If you don’t have a dog, volunteer to walk someone else’s.
  • Try to get the support of your family and friends. It is much easier to keep motivated if they are on your side.

Remember - most people don’t enjoy exercise immediately; it takes a little time before you can feel the benefits.
