To increase your motivation to exercise try these simple tips:
Set goals with a deadline- Simply get your calendar and mark the date you want to reach your goal. If you accomplish your goal reward yourself and if you don’t set a punishment. It provides motivation either way. It is important to list the reward or punishment immediately after selecting goal date.
Get support- put yourself in the right mindset and environment. Speak with achievers who have already accomplished what you are attempting to do. Also, read or listen to at least 5 – 10 minutes of motivational and inspirational materials each day.
Lastly, begin with an exercise program suitable for you. If you have not been exercising do not start with a high impact program. When I created my Chair-A-Cise, chair exercise, DVDs series , I designed them to gradually take you from beginner to optimal health. Start with a program you feel comfortable with which is challenging but don’t overdo it.
