Research tells us that the number one reason that people stick to a new exercise program is social support. Goal setting also creates success, as well as self-confidence AND self-compassion. Read the following top ten tips that will help keep you on track while developing your exercise habit:
1. Find a workout buddy
This can be someone at your office or someonein your family. It can also be a family dog OR you can volunteer to walk dogs for the SPCA or the Humane Society. A dog can be an even more effective exercise companion than a person because people feel responsible for giving their dog exercise. They may let themselves down, but they will be sure to take good care of their pet.
