Here are tips on getting extra exercise while slowly building up stamina:

TIP #14 – CHANGE IS GOOD:   Change the workouts (try something new). Variety is the spice of life. And for exercises. Sometimes walk, sometimes bike, sometimes swim.. Walk up stairs. Don’t fall into a rut. Don’t let yourself get bored. It’s the surest way to give up on your regimen. Don’t let your routine become routine.

TIP #15 – REACH FOR THE SKY:  Repetitive exercises tend to make our muscles shorter and stiffer. Exercises that repeat the same motion over and over, such as biking, running, or weightlifting, fit into this category. Longer, more supple muscles tend to be more efficient. Buy or take out a book from the library on stretching (or yoga). You can even go online and look up various stretching exercises. Make stretching a part of your daily routine.

TIP #16 – MAKE IT FUN!:  Exercise should not be some dreary and dreadful task. There are plenty of exercises that are just plain fun. Tennis, Dancing, zumba, yoga, basketball, or simply walking are all great ways to stay in shape. So instead of equating working out with a treadmill and a bunch of dumbbells, try something that keeps you motivated and have a good time. But dont forget what makes you glum, I might find fun.  While many of you find running, jogging and lifting weights to be boring and tedious, if you find it to be fun, go out and do it!

Procrastination Weekly Challenge #4: Change It Up

WeeklyChallenge

If what you are trying to accomplish is not getting done: stop drop and roll. Well don’t actually drop and roll, it might leave you with an awful splitting headache, but just change it up.  There are times when your way of doing something just doesn’t work. It doesn’t mean it was a bad approach, on the contrary;  the approach may have been excellent. Maybe it was the timing or maybe it was not the best fit for your personality. Whatever the reason is, don’t be afraid of pushing beyond what you are used to doing in your routine. Try a different way of accomplishing your goal. This week, whether it’s the goal you stated, or anything in your life that doesn’t seem to get done fast enough, change it up!! Trying a different approach or method may help you learn more about yourself and understand your personality in terms of how to be more productive.
