Get Moving for Overall Good Health
One of the keys to healthy living is physical activity, and one of the best ways to get started is by taking it one step at a time.
Here are some tips on how to start and maintain a successful fitness regimen.
1Set Realistic Goals Be aware of your current level of activity and don't strive for perfection. Just start slowly and focus on adding time, distance and intensity a little bit at a time.
2Be Consistent and be Patient By making physical activity part of your everyday life, you’re more likely to stick with it. With any new activity, it may take some time to get up to speed. Take your time so you can avoid injury.
3Work Out with a Buddy Friends and family can keep you active, on track and accountable. Plus, they can encourage you on your healthy lifestyle journey and make it more fun! Watch Dr. Raj's video.
4Track your Progress Keeping a log of your activity can help you stay on track. Whether you use a pedometer, an app or some other device, these tools can help meet your goals and keep you motivated. Watch Dr. Raj's video.
5Find an Activity that Makes You Happy Sometimes exercise can feel like a chore, but if you engage in activities you enjoy, you are more likely to stick with your exercise regimen.
Before starting any exercise routine, remember to consult your doctor whether you’re in good health or have any chronic health conditions.
