Find An Enjoyable Exercise
A huge part of making exercise a habit is making it something you don't dread doing. Many individuals force themselves to go to the gym and walk or run on the treadmill even though they absolutely despise doing so. Before lacing up your shoes and heading to the gym, do a little research to find out what your favorite kind of exercise is. Search the web for fun exercises, ask your friends and family what they do, or speak with a personal trainer.
There are many ways to exercise, so you should be able to find an enjoyable exercise you can easily work into your routine. As a few examples, you could try walking the dog or with a friend, or implement a home workout program. Many free workout programs are available on the web for low cost, or even free, so you can workout at home even if you are on a budget! Working out with a friend is a great way to hold yourself accountable (because you won't want to bail on your friend)! Additionally, you can catch up with your friend while working out, which will motivate you to actually go and do it.
