Your Attitude to Exercise Can Make or Break Your Fitness Habits

This is a great post by Amelia Burton entitled: “4.5 Ways to shift your attitude towards exercise.” I tend to agree with her take on things. Under the sub-title, “Lighten up it’s only exercise” I would also add, remember to choose at least some exercise that gives you joy to do. Remember that anything that gets your heart racing, your muscles pumping and your breath panting is exercise and can be counted as such (Yes, even that ;). So vary your routine and add in some of the fun stuff!

I did mean things like swimming, dancing, yoga, climbing, playing with your dog, whatever give you a sense of fun and enjoyment. I have to tell the truth I am not a natural exerciser, I tend to get bored easily and this is my way of maintaining my fitness.

Go on try a belly dancing course: did you know they are great for helping with women’s issues? Have you seen how fit some of those pole dancers are? What about good old fashioned jive, or samba or some dirty dancing?

I also love a good stretch and Yoga and Pilates classes are great for that, classes also give you the benefit of socialising with others and making some new friends.

This way your attitude will gain the benefits of motivation and looking forward to your exercise even if your like me.

Be Fit! Be Well! do it online…

I’ve found that working out with someone, or at least being held accountable by someone, helps immensely. It’s also much easier to train for something when I’ve set a goal…and paid the entrance fee ahead of time!
