Tips to Start Working Out Today!

By Donna Stark

One day or day one? There are two very different roads you can take with that statement, and when it comes to your health and fitness goals, it really makes a difference which one you choose. For example, what if you say, "One day, I will get off of this couch and start exercising." Sure, that sounds promising, but it also seems a little bit wishy-washy, don't you think? But if you say, "Today is going to be day one of my new fitness routine!" Well, that definitely sounds a whole lot better because it's obvious that a commitment has been made and plans are being executed. So which one have you chosen, one day or day one?

Tips to Start Working Out Today!

We all know that exercise is important for our overall health and wellness, but if you aren't practicing what you know, then you are probably in the "one day" camp. And if you are, it's time to switch sides! Here are just a few of the benefits you will receive from regular exercise. Hopefully, they will encourage you to join the others in the "day one" camp.  

  • Improves brain function - Sweat, so you don't forget! Yes, I agree, that rhyme is a little silly, but if it helps you to remember to get your daily sweat session in, then it may not be so silly after all. So get your heart pumping because aerobic exercise has been shown to help improve memory and brain function.
  • Reduces stress - Life can be stressful but you can reduce that stress by adding more exercise into your weekly routine! Studies have shown that physical activity is a proven stress reliever, so no matter what is on your mind, try giving exercise a chance at helping!
  • Improves long-term health - How do you picture yourself once you are retired? Healthy and active, or sick and weak? When you prioritize exercise, you are basically giving heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers a battle they weren't expecting. You will also be able to improve your very own mobility, strength, and joint function.
  • Keeps you energized - Sure, it sounds backward, but expending energy for your workouts actually gives you more energy during the day. 
  • Maintains a healthy weight - In addition to a healthy diet, exercise is crucial for losing or maintaining optimal weight. So if you are looking to shed some pounds, or wanting to keep the svelte figure you already have, make sure that exercise is a priority in your life!

Let Today be Your Day One!

Choosing to be in the "day one" camp will bring so many benefits and changes to your life that you will wish you had left the "one day" camp a lot sooner! So go ahead and make the right choice and start living your best life yet!
