How to Make Exercise a Habit
Working out can be really healthy for you, but making it a habit is the best thing you can do for yourself. Fitness professionals will say that unless exercise becomes a habit for you, the benefits of a one-off workout really isn't there. Here's how you can work to make exercise a habit in your life.
Now it takes time to turn something into a habit, and the average time for that is 66 days. When you decide to make something a habit, you have to understand why you want this new thing in your life to become a habit in the first place.
With exercise, focus on what's fun, understand what exercise even means to you and allow time for you to adjust your exercise routine. If something doesn't work right away, don't get discouraged, just look at it objectively and find out what isn't working and how to fix it. Slow and steady wins the race, but steady is the key... a habit can't be formed if you're not consistent.
