Get your wiggle on!
I'm in the 'not so fond of' camp, I need to find a class or group activity I really enjoy in order to get moving.
I do like the results I get when exercising, I become more agile, I feel great in my clothes and it helps me feel more energetic. It just isn't a natural habit that I have formed or at least taken the right opportunity to find something I really love.
My quest to find something that lights me up and makes me want to get out of bed early is ongoing and it was while I was thinking about what I like to do that I decided the next 4 blogs were all going to be about exercise.!
Let's see if I can find something that resonates with you too!
Before we go any further I feel the need for some facts... some real reasons as to why we should all be trying to fit some movement into our lives.
I am sure we can find all the excuses under the sun why NOT to exercise. I have used most of them!
It comes down to this... motivation. If the reasons above aren't motivation enough then you need to find your own personal 'why'.
These are the main types of exercise to focus on.
How much is enough?
The standard recommendations are to do 150 mins (2.5 hours) of moderate aerobic activity or 75 mins (1.25 hours) vigorous aerobic activity a week plus some strength training.
A typical week could be made up by breaking that down over a few days. Most group classes last between 30 & 60 mins.
It doesn't have to be so daunting for those of you that really struggle to exercise.
Sometimes it can be the small steps that get you started and moving at least a little but most days.
Have a look around and think about how you might be able to incorporate some movement into your daily routine.
