3 Tips for Exercise Motivation
By Dr. Carol Otis
Three tips for exercise motivation. Drumming up motivation to exercise is tough, especially for busy women. But there are a few tricks that can help.
First, recruit a friend. Sweating with a buddy will make any type of exercise — walking, biking, taking an aerobics class — more fun.
You also need to find a time that works for you. If you plan to exercise after work but things always seem to get in your way — cooking dinner, sitting on comfy couch or watching a good TV show — you’re probably less likely to feel motivated. Instead, schedule exercise for a time you know you’ll feel energetic and have fewer distractions. That might mean waking up 20 minutes earlier or sneaking out on your lunch hour.
