May is National Physical Fitness Month!
With our busy schedules, it can be hard to fit exercise into your schedule. It’s recommended that the average adult gets 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. However, not all of us are getting our recommended exercise. In honor of National Physical Fitness Month, make it a habit to exercise more! Stick to your fitness goals, and check out these ways to help you stay active and motivated.
Consistency Is Key.
One push up isn’t going to do much when it comes to your health. It takes time and patience to build up your strength. Be sure to stay consistent with your workout plan so you can stay healthy.
Mix It Up.
While it’s important to stick to a routine, it’s also important to have fun. Routines can get boring, so make sure to mix it up. Rather than running your usual mile, try taking a dance class or going for a hike. When you’re having fun, it won’t feel like exercise, and you’ll be more likely to stick with it.
Pick A Buddy.
You’re more motivated to follow through on tasks when you have a buddy to hold you to your word. A buddy helps keep you accountable. Plus, your workout partner helps to encourage you through your fitness journey.
When you have a goal to work toward, you’re more motivated to accomplish it. However, be sure to pick manageable goals. Pick small goals so that they’re attainable, and stick to your workout plan.
Health and fitness are a journey. Remember that you’re not going to see results overnight. It takes time to get fit. Be patient and stick to your fitness goals.
