Get Active Stay Active

Here are a few tips and hints on starting and keeping an exercise routine. Exercise motivation in brief:

Use self rewards

Toot your own horn: make a big deal of every accomplishment

Take a class through your local parks and rec

Start a group and perform fitness videos together

Be active with your family

Make exercise a priority (it has to be equal to brushing your teeth and putting on your shoes)

Find and assign a time (consistency)

Do it (make it fun)

Make it a habit (it'll take 6-8 weeks for the habit to be ingrained)

Use positive thinking (Tell yourself you're giving yourself a gift, not depriving yourself of time)

Reduce the obstacles (put your exercise clothes out before you go to bed, keep your bike in top condition, pay for your gym membership ahead of time)

Hitch exercise to an essential (bike to work!)

Find a role model

Acknowledge that there are pros and cons

Don’t sweat the times you don't exercise
