Exercise & Self Sufficiency

Posted On 04/27/2016

My doctor keeps telling me that if I want to continue being self-sufficient, I have to start exercising more. Exercise has never been my thing, so how do I make it a habit now?


The National Institute on Health (NIH) has a great article about making exercise a regular part of your day. If you manage to remain dedicated to making exercise a routine, it will in time become a habit. The NIH lists the following key tips to being successful with implementing an exercise routine:

1. Make it a priority.

2. Make it easy.

3. Make it safe.

4. Make it social.

5. Make it interesting and fun.

6. Make it an active decision.
