Making exercise one of our good habits means it becomes part of our routine, something we do without thinking, something that is just as part of our day as brushing our teeth is; so how do we do that?
· Find a regular time or day that works for you.
- Plan to do exercise, put it on the calendar, put your kit out ready, make it a family activity.
- Follow a programme and get support – the NHS oneyou app ‘active-10’ helps you set a goal, track progress and celebrate your achievement. https://www.nhs.uk/oneyou/for-your-body/move-more/active-10
- Notice the benefits. When we feel better for doing something it motivates to do more of it. Sometimes I have to push or cajole myself to go out for a cycle, remind myself that when I am out I will enjoy it and if I don’t I can come back after 30 mins. Invariably I enjoy it, seeing nature, feeling the fresh morning air, getting my heart pumping and come back invigorated
