The level and extent can vary depending upon one’s personality type. The overachiever tends to be extreme. The underachiever tends to quickly fall off the exercise wagon. The most successful exercise personality seems to be the moderate person. They also have the least risk of injury and the best chance of continuing without burnout.
It always amazes me how many people join the health club on January 1st. The parking lots are filled making it almost impossible for the lifetime exerciser to get a parking space. That same parking lot gets back to normal in a few short weeks.
I am sure that I don’t have to go over the many benefits of exercise. The release of endorphins are enough of a reason for me. It is the best natural antidepressant.
Let’s not make promises that we can’t keep. Let’s make realistic goals. Let’s start slow and steady. Don’t exercise 7 days a week if you never exercised. Start by taking a brisk walk for twenty minutes three times a week. Give that time to yourself to walk and talk with a friend, listen to music or just observe nature. If you can’t walk outside then do something pleasurable while walking on the treadmill.
Allow yourself to have a bad day without guilt and self punishment. Life isn’t supposed to be so hard. Each day is a chance to do our best and each day our best can differ. Allow that and honor yourself.
