Exercising doesn’t have to be a job!
Find the right activity for you that will keep your blood flowing while keeping your mind engaged!
(Royal Oak, Mich.) Over 40% of Americans make a New Year’s Resolution each year. There is no doubt that making a resolution can help a person to have better health, love and happiness, but keeping with the resolution past January is always the hard part. One of the most common resolutions; lose weight.
According to the President’s Council on Physical Fitness (PCPF), Adults should do a minimum of 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity a week.
Keeping your New Year’s Resolution can be the most difficult part of your resolution, but it does not have to be. Fitness Expert, Erin Goryl, says that getting in shape and exercising can be fun, and something you look forward to doing.
1. Relieves Stress. Exercise can help to relieve the daily stress in your life. According to the Mayo Clinic, virtually any form of exercise can decrease the production of stress hormones and counteract your body’s natural stress response.
2. Meet new people. You don’t have to exercise alone. By joining a class, or trying out a new group activity you are able to meet new people who have similar interests. When you have a great support system around you it is easier to stick with your goals.
3. Exercise for fun. You do not have to go to the gym to work out. There are many recreational leagues that offer classes and sports to play. Playing basketball or taking a dance class helps to engage your mind as well as your body, keeping you more involved.
Goryl also says that it is important to be realistic with your goals. Losing 20 pounds is a realistic goal to set for your resolution. Expecting to lose 20 pounds in one month is not a realistic target. It can take time to see large results, but don’t let that get in your way of continuing with your resolution.
