Tips for a Successful Exercise Program

  • Set specific long-term goals, but keep short-term goals flexible.

  • Reward yourself for exercising.

  • Make exercise a priority by scheduling it.

  • Surround yourself with reminders to exercise.

  • Pick the activities you prefer in the beginning, even if they're less strenuous. Once you're exercising regularly, you can try more challenging activities.

  • Work at a level that lets you feel as good when you stop as when you start.

  • Don't judge the benefits only by the weight scale. Exercise has also been shown to reduce stress and fight depression.
