Mel Thomassian’s Advice on Getting Started With Exercise

Here’s her post.  A snippet:

4. Change Your Mind Set

I’m not going to lie, it is a long, slow process to change how you think about some things. But, you need to begin somewhere.

If you’re always telling yourself that you’re no good at exercising, or you never have time to exercise, you will never be able to change for good.

It is imperative that you believe you can change, to actually see change.

So, start believing you can enjoy exercise.

Start believing you could fit it in to your schedule a few times each week.

Start believing you could even enjoy it.

There’s a saying that goes, fake it till you make it! Well, that’s the kind of thing I’m talking about here;

  • Self belief in your ability to perform well in a particular activity.
  • Congratulating yourself for your efforts.
  • Reinforcing the fact that you are doing something really good for your body.

On the other hand, Ken Hutchins says, “Do not try to make exercise enjoyable.  Do not try to make recreation exercise.”
