Self-discipline is paramount
"The key to year-round fitness is to develop an exercise routine you enjoy and be consistent. If you’re not enjoying slogging it out on a treadmill, do not force yourself. Keep trying new forms of exercise until you find one you actively enjoy. That way, it’ll become a part of your life and not something you resent doing. Having a partner to exercise with also makes it a lot more enjoyable and you’re less likely to miss a session because you will not want to let them down."
Small and regular goals
"Another way to stay motivated is to sign up for challenges throughout the year as this will help keep you focused. It doesn’t have to be as big as a marathon but little goals give you extra motivation when you need it because you have something to work towards. Even during holidays or festivities, maintaining some level of conditioning is important so do not lose the valuable gains you worked so hard to achieve."
A healthy future
"I am also a big believer in the benefits of exercise on wellbeing. Physical activity has a huge potential to enhance our wellbeing. Even a short burst of 10 minutes’ brisk walking increases our mental alertness, energy and positive mood. Participation in regular physical activity can increase our self-esteem and can reduce stress and anxiety. It also plays a role in preventing the development of mental health problems and in improving the quality of life of people experiencing mental health problems."
