Schedule a regular time for exercise and make it a priority. Block out that time in your calendar and try to stick to it.
Make exercise a part of your daily routine. If you are pressed for time, do quick exercises while taking a break from work, such as walking around the block or doing some stretches.
Look into joining an exercise class or sports team. This can help you stay motivated and increase your sense of accountability.
Break up your exercise into smaller chunks throughout the day if you can’t find time for a full workout. For example, take a few minutes for a jog during your lunch break or do some bodyweight exercises before you go to bed.
Exercise with a friend or family member. This can help keep you motivated and make the time for exercise more enjoyable.
Incorporate physical activities into your leisure time. Instead of sitting in front of the TV, try going for a walk or bike ride.
Take advantage of exercise opportunities when they arise. If you have to wait in line, do some squats or lunges.
Reward yourself for sticking to your exercise routine. Give yourself a treat such as a manicure or a massage after a successful week of exercising.
Prioritize sleep. Make sure you are getting enough rest so that you have the energy to exercise.
Look for ways to make exercise fun. Try a new type of exercise class or pick an activity you enjoy such as dancing or swimming.
