Put a Spring in Your Step: Start and Stick with an Exercise Plan

160786180Exercise can increase your energy, improve your mood, help you sleep, and control your weight. Spring is a great time to start a workout plan.

Here are some tips to follow:

Simple goal: Pick a simple goal that fits your schedule. For example, you might plan to walk for 20 minutes, three times a week.

Write it down: This will help you keep track of how many times you are active each week.

Daily reminders: Plan your exercise time like any other appointment. Write it on your calendar.

Plan ahead: Put your walking shoes near the door, keep a gym bag ready to go, and remember to drink water before you exercise.

Distract your mind: Listen to music or a recorded book on your headphones while you walk or ride a bike. Watch a favorite TV show while you exercise at home.

Once you feel the benefits of exercise, you will want to stay active. Ask your doctor what types of exercises are right for you.
