Healthy Lifestyle Tip: Some Ways to Help Stay Motivated
Sometimes the motivation to get moving is a challenge. Here are some tips to help you take the first step.
 
Create a Playlist
Music is a great motivator. Create a playlist of songs with a steady, fast beat that makes you want to move.
 
Share Your Goals
Tell your friends and family about your exercise goals, they'll support you to stay on track and reach them. Recruit an exercise partner, real or virtual, another great way to share your goals.
 
Work Toward Something
Give yourself something to work toward. An athletic event, such as a race, may give you more motivation to get moving. Set a workout schedule and make a training plan.
 
Go to Bed Early
When you feel refreshed, you are more likely to have the energy and feel motivated to exercise.
 
Give It 10 Minutes
Getting started with your workout can be challenging. If you can get yourself out the door and tell yourself that you only need to exercise for 10 minutes, after that you're likely to get in the groove of your workout and continue.
