Starting Your Fitness Journey
Starting Your Fitness Journey!Starting your fitness journey can seem like a daunting task. Whether your journey is due to health issues or you just need to shed some weight, often the hardest part of starting an exercise regimen is just getting started.
Exercising regularly is one of the best things you can do for your overall health. However, integrating exercise into your routine can take determination and discipline.
Your fitness and health journey is unique to you and you alone. This means that only you can create and shape a plan that will work best for whatever your goals may be.
In order to get started you need to ask yourself a few questions to help craft a specific plan in order to meet your goals:
- What am I trying to accomplish?
- What is my physical ability and limitations?
- What do I enjoy doing?
- What can I commit to doing?
- What does my Dr. Recommend?
- What will motivate me?
Once you can answer these questions, then you have jumped that first hurdle and you can start a plan of action. Start small with realistic expectations and goals, then find a support system or workout buddy. Both of these will help you to stay positive, motivated and help you with accountability in order to stay on track.
Studies have shown that exercise not only improves your physical health, but it can lift your mood, boost your mental health and help you to sleep better. Get started on your fitness journey today!!!
