Secret To Becoming Naturally More Active

  • Think Activity, Not Exercise. First, you will want to think of activity, not exercise. Some people have an aversion to doing any “exercise” and for them, forcing it will have an adverse effect on their thinking. When people instead focus on activity – merely moving their body, it becomes more natural for them, and they become motivated to do it and keep at it. Try this technique for yourself.
  • Get A Friend to Join In. It is also a smart idea to get a friend involved as well. For instance, invite a friend to go for a power walk with you or have a co-worker join you for a lunch yoga class. Sometimes just being in the company of others is enough to spark added interest in the physical activity.
  • Make It A Habit. It is also vital you focus on making it a habit as well. You want to become more active and stay active, not just have it be a fleeting thing. Try and set a time each day to get busy and stick with that time as best as possible. If you can do it five days in a row, the chances you keep doing it will be much higher.
  • Go Slow. Finally, go slowly. Do not think you are going from being a “couch potato” to “exercise enthusiast” overnight. Realize it does take time, and you will not get there right away. Be patient with yourself and the process. If you show yourself some understanding and self-love, it will be much easier to go about this process without hitting so many bumps in the road.
