Tip Days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. This month of tips will be devoted to Exercise.
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!
