If we aren’t having fun yet, why will we keep doing it? In this world of instant everything, we can get really bored with out daily crunches, walks and even those classes that had been such a blast when we first signed up for them six weeks ago. What is a person who wants to stay active and have a good time to do? Mix it up!
First and foremost, have FUN with it. Don’t think of exercise as a chore or a task, think of it as something to look forward to. The second it starts to bore you, move along. Find a new shiny form of exercise that will keep your attention as well as keeping up your heart rate.
Some great ideas to get you moving and keep you moving are:
1. Get your friends involved. Start some MOVING groups with your friends, walking (you can use www.WalkOffObesity.com to find people in your area), skipping, running, bicycling, rollerblading, swimming and more. Get creative and think about some unique things you can come up with.
2. How about a book & bicycling club? Read a book and then talk about it when you get together for your weekly rides. Think outside of the typical exercise box and maybe switch it up enough the people in your group won’t have time to get bored.
