Be in right frame of mind:
First and the foremost thing you should to do is to be in the right frame of mind. Ask yourself why you want to do this and will it be possible for you to spare time for this venture. If the answer is a “Yes” then you are good to go.
You should set goals for yourself as they will keep you motivated. However, be reasonable and make short term and realistic goals. You must understand that nothing can be done overnight so take it easy.
Make exercise your hobby:
Instead of taking it as routine, you should make exercise your hobby. With this approach, you will be able to do it regularly and doing exercise certainly will give you pleasure. Take it as an on-going process as being inconsistent won’t help you. Make it a part of your lifestyle and things will go smoothly.
Decide the frequency:
You should decide as to how often you will do exercise. It is better to do it at least five times in a week. Pick the most convenient times and stick to those days and timings.
Choose your exercise:
Now, when you are all set to start, choose an exercise which is suitable for your age, gender and body needs. Do not follow others as everyone has different body and requirements. It is better to start with a set of simple exercises like, walking, jogging, sit-ups, push-ups etc. If you are not sure about your body shape then do not feel hesitation in consulting with a professional fitness instructor.
Vary your exercise:
You must add new things in your exercise routine otherwise you will lose interest very soon. Moreover, it is always better to exercise in a group as the group members will keep each other motivated.
Evaluate and appreciate yourself as a simple pat on the shoulder can keep you positive.
