This is a topic we talk about a lot, here's few thoughts i'd like to share. The saying 'no pain, no gain' is a myth. Some activity is better than none, and more is better than a little, but you don’t have to exercise to the point of collapse to get a health benefit. Aim for at least 30 minutes of moderate-intensity activity on most, preferably 3-5 days of the week. Some helpful tips to get started Make time to be physically active and schedule it as you would an appointment. Set a date for when you will start. Write the date down and stick to it. Make an activity planner so you can put the times and days you will do each activity. Set short-term and long-term goals. Make your goals specific, measurable and achievable. Rather than a vague goal like 'I will get fit', try 'I will walk every day for 10 minutes after meals' or 'I will get on and off the bus/train two stops away from my usual stop'. Build up gradually. If you are starting a new activity or have been inactive for some time, start at a level that you can manage easily and gradually build up. Plan physical activity with others. This can help you stick to your plan and achieve your goals. Try some strength training by joining a Lift for Life program. Do not give up before you start to see the benefits. Be patient and keep at it. Have fun! Physical activity can make you feel good about yourself and it’s a good opportunity to have fun with other people or enjoy some time to yourself. Or come workout with us at lunch twice a week. And don't be to hard on yourself the negative thoughts will consume you and set you back more. 10 mins stair climber 20 min elliptical and a few ab or arm exercises. I hope to see you soon!
