Learn 5 Quick Steps To Get Unstuck

We have all been in situations when we feel stuck in a rut. We don’t know how to get out of it and that makes it even worse. The downward spiral of beating yourself up and blame starts and you then end up even more stuck.

How To Stop Being A Couch Potato and Exercise

The only real way to work past your lazy nature is firstly to accept it. Once you have done so, it is easier to help working past it. This will be a slow process and will not occur overnight.

The KEY to this is finding a motivation for exercise. For many people, this is to decrease the risk of diabetes, heart disease and cancer, and for many others, this is to lose weight and therefore gain confidence and other positive aspects that come from exercise such as endorphins and serotonin release in the brain.

Want to start running? Good for you! In my opinion you have made an excellent exercise choice. Running is not for everyone, but once you’ve started, and you realise you like (no, love!) it, then you will not look back. I think that runners are runners for life even if they don’t do it for a while.

Running is a form of exercise that you can start at low cost, with ease, and start immediately. If you can walk with some ease you can run.

Ensure you will remain motivated, rather than quit once you feel bored.

Ways to do this:

  • Pick one race you will run every year. Having a tangible goal will allow you to stay motivated, and have a bigger purpose to your running. You could also include friends or family, to make the experience more enjoyable, and therefore make you more likely to train hard for it.
  • Be prepared. Always keep a bag with running clothes and shoes with you in your car,...
