Health Tip: Don’t Think of Exercise as a Chore

Engage in activities that you enjoy

(HealthDay News) — If you think of exercise as a chore that you have to do, it can be more difficult to stick with it.

The Weight-Control Information Network offers these suggestions for making exercise fun:

-Figure out which fitness activities you enjoy most, and incorporate them into your exercise routine. Try to vary the routine so you don’t become bored.

-Walk with a friend or family member, or sign up together for an exercise class.

-Build a community or backyard garden, and work in it regularly.

-Exercise in short spurts, such as three 10-minute walks.

-If you are concerned about exercising outdoors for safety reasons, join a local gym.
