Simple tricks that can motivate you to exercise and stick to it.
Did you know that regular exercise can increase happiness and you don't have to train for a triathlon to squeeze more joy? Living a happier life is within reach!
We have good news, especially for those who are too busy to exercise. A recent study found that even a small amount of physical activity can make a difference. A 10-minute exercise can be enough to make you feel better!
If you aren't feeling up to a strenuous workout, we have you covered. Start with simple and effective exercises. Then figure out what works for you and what doesn't, and stick to those you like.
To help you stay motivated, the trick is not to overstrain yourself — or you'll probably end up feeling frustrated and sore. When you feel the benefits of exercise, you're likely to continue. Nonetheless, the best trick to help you stick to it is to include those exercises you enjoy in your daily or weekly routines.
Some of these exercises may be a starter for you:
1. Brisk walking.
Go for a brisk walk around the block every night after dinner.
Start your day with 10 minutes of stretching.
Bust a move to some great music after work.
Get your hands dirty in the garden on weekends. Gardening is a full-body exercise, and nature can make you happier.
5. Taking the stairs.
Choose to take the stairs rather than the elevator can give you an emotional lift.
A little exercise on a regular basis can go a long way toward your happiness. And, remember to stay hydrated. Consider adding to your beverage a serving of caffeine-free Rosa Damascena extract, such as our La Vie en Rose Drops that can uplift your mood further.
