Some people may find the thought of working out a little intimidating but it doesn’t need to be that way. The key is finding the right exercise routine that you enjoy and offers the best success for you. Make some goals and try to reach them!
You don’t need to jog, run or walk for hours on a treadmill. In fact any activity that will increase your heart rate and make you breath harder will benefit your heart.
You could try swimming, hiking, paddling or bike riding or just go for a brisk walk several times a week. And don’t measure your success by the scale, weight is not the best way to judge your health.
Set realistic goals a small amount of exercise done several times a week is better that short lived fads. Finding an exercise buddy can help you with motivation, after all you don’t want to let them down.
In conclusion just make sure whatever activity you choose to do you’re enjoying doing it. And remember it’s never to late to exercise and improve your health.
