Exercise for Life
Exercise for life
Although this may sound hideous, exercise does not necessary have to be a hardship.
Here's why ...
The Uncertain Beginners: "I've always hated exercise, so why should I start now?"
If you're dubious about exercise then the best way to cope is to try to make it fun. Remember, it doesn't have to be an eight-mile jog in the snow with a huge wagon wheel strapped to your back! Every little helps, and there are relatively easy ways to 'kid yourself' into enjoying, (or not really realizing that you even are), being active.
* Always stand up when you're on the telephone.
The Intermediate Group: "I'll do it when I've got time, ...or if I can be bothered!"
So far, you're doing relatively well in the exercise stakes, but if you're really honest with yourself, you could do more. You just need a little bit more encouragement, and/or pressure! Plan your exercise times as you would an important business meeting, and stick to it. Why not find an exercise partner so that you can help each other, and enjoy a social occasion at the same time?
* Do some light gardening; mowing, raking and digging are ideal. You don't need to start trying to hack trees down by hand!
The Master Class: "Let me at it!!"
First of all, it's great that you're so enthusiastic, but please don't be tempted to over-do it! Remember, taking things relatively easy doesn't reflect badly on you; even when you were younger you would still damage your body if you pushed it too far.
Here are some quick ideas for more 'energetic' exercise:
* Go sightseeing by walking jogging or cycling.
A few quick points to note:
Before planning your exercise program, get checked out by the doctor. This is particularly important if you have a family history of heart disease. Take time to warm up and cool down as your muscular adaptation and elasticity slows with age. Your sense of thirst also decreases, so try to drink water around about every fifteen minutes.
