Whatever the time of year, there’s never a better time to start something new than today. When it comes to exercise, your body will thank you in the long term with improved fitness, and you might even make a few friends along the way. In this guide, we’ll help you boost confidence and motivation, and help take care of those small issues, including some stain removal tips for when things get messy.
It’s been said that to form any new habit, it can generally take as long as two to eight months to feel fully comfortable doing it as part of your routine. A lot can depend on your motivation, but it’s the discipline of doing a new thing every day that forms the habit.
Our advice is to start small, and build from a five minute practice up. Some go in with the idea of putting in maximum effort from the beginning, but this approach can lead to burn out, tired muscles, and a loss of willpower. It’s better to ease your way in slowly: just the act of being in the gym, even if you don’t touch a machine, can help set in habits that will grow as time goes on.
FINDING THE TIME
Trying a new hobby can be time consuming at first, and with busy day-to-day habits already existing it can sometimes be difficult to squeeze a moment of exercise in. The best thing to do is to find a time that suits you. A lunch hour, or before dinner, can be the best time to try something new - unless you’re an early riser. Of course there is a balance, so try not to overwhelm yourself. Simplifying your life before you add complications can be a source of energy, so take out time you’d spend on unproductive tasks if you can. Setting a time every day, or other day, will also help establish a routine. A walk at 12pm is much easier to remember than just a walk whenever you can.
Because the nature of exercise can be quite strenuous, it might be a good idea to begin on weekends, either early on Saturday or Sunday, or even a short burst during lunch. This will also give you more time to recover, and more time to fit things in. As for what to do, just find something fun! Swimming, running and cycling are popular forms of exercise, but you can also try interesting variations such as yoga, aerobics, or spinning. There may be more classes you can attend on weekends, and health clubs and gyms are generally at their busiest on Saturdays and Sundays.
