We all have to start somewhere when it comes to fitness. It can be a very daunting task if you are new to the exercise game. However, it’s important to know it’s not impossible, nor is it even that difficult! There are so many simple ways to begin a healthier, more active lifestyle.
There are a number of small lifestyle changes you can make that will allow for an easier transition into weekly, even daily workouts. It’s a great start, if it’s possible, to change up your commute to work. Instead of driving or using public transit, try walking or biking. If that just isn’t a possibility for you, try using the stairs instead of escalators or elevators wherever you go. You can also switch out your office chair for a resistance ball, which will allow for better posture and greater core strength.
It’s important to not push yourself right out of the gate. Going full force on your first workout can be tiring and painful, honestly turning you off from the whole thing. Do what feels right for yourself and your body. Take advantage of the sites around you and go out for a quick walk with a friend. It’s important to end any activity feeling great and happy that you’ve completed it!
