Everyone deserves to be healthy. However, most people think that getting healthy is supposed to be a chore. Something that just isn’t fun. This isn’t true! Getting healthy should be fun, that way you know you’ll stick to it. If it isn’t fun, then you’re doing it wrong! This guide will help you to get healthy and have fun:
Find an Exercise You Really Enjoy
In order to get healthy and have fun, it only makes sense to find a form of exercise that you really enjoy. Don’t worry too much about what burns the most calories or works up the most of a sweat. The way to stay healthy in the long term is to find something you really enjoy, because then you’ll stick to it. Doing a really high intensity class will make you healthier and fitter, but you might not keep it up if you don’t love it. So, whether it’s swimming or rock climbing, find something you just love to do!
Do Classes and Workshops
There are always going to be classes and workshops out there that you can try. These classes and workshops could introduce you to something totally new that you’ve never tried before. At the very least, you’ll have fun trying something new and stepping out of your comfort zone. At best, you’ll find a new favourite exercise! You could try pole dancing, ballroom dancing, yoga, or something else that catches your eye. Many dance studios offer different types of classes to suit you!
Keep Your Routine Varied
The key to sticking to a routine is keeping it as varied as you possibly can. Don’t be afraid of trying new things. Changing up your routine every few weeks will stop you from getting bored and you can easily break out of plateaus this way.
Get a Friend to Do it With You
You probably have a friend who wants to get healthy too, so why not get them to try new things with you? Having somebody else can keep you accountable. Just make sure you pick someone who is serious about it – it’s all too easy to make excuses and end up quitting your routine because your friend isn’t serious. Make sure the majority of your sessions are hard work too. Don’t stand around talking!
Include Your Pets
You can include your pets in many different exercises. You can go biking, running, walking, and even hiking with them. They get plenty of exercise too, so it’s a bonus!
Start Cooking Healthy Food
Learn to love cooking, if you don’t already. Start by cooking healthy versions of your unhealthy favourites. You can make healthy burger and chips, and even healthy pizza. Challenge yourself to cook new things. It’s way more satisfying than getting a takeaway or putting something in the microwave!
These tips will help you to get so much healthier and have fun while you do it. Make sure you monitor your progress so you can see just how far you’ve come. It’ll motivate you to keep going!
