A good starting point for most people is to try and lose 10 pounds, and for many people this can be easily achieved through exercise. Almost all of us at some point in our lives are going to want to lose some weight. Not only will losing weight make you feel and look better, it will make you feel better about yourself and help your self-confidence.
1۔ Review Your Lifestyle
Before beginning your attempt to lose 10 pounds, sit down and take a look at your lifestyle. Are you active? Do you watch a lot of TV? Do you spend your day in an office in front of a computer? Most people don’t get nearly the amount of exercise they should be getting, and although this is a bad thing, it also means that your body will respond quickly to an increase in exercise.
2. Exercise is Difficult for Most People Because
The reason exercise seems difficult to most people is that it can seem like more work than it actually is. A lot of people who want to lose 10 pounds by exercising immediately think of a gym, and a regimen that they don’t have time for. While there is no doubt that going a gym is one of the best ways you can exercise, it is far from the only one.
3. Incorporate Exercise in Your Daily Routine is the Key
Most of us live very inactive lives. Think about it: you probably drive to work, sit for 8 hours, and drive home. Once you get home you’re tired enough that you simply want to “relax.” It may seem difficult to work exercise into this routine, but you’ll find it’s not that hard at all. By simply acquiring an exercise bike, Stairmaster, or the like, you can watch TV or listen to music while you’re excising. This is a great way to “wind-down” after a day of work – plus if you’re going to be watching TV anyway, you’re not losing any time, you’re simply doing two things at once.
4. Exercising during Work Hours
Another good idea is to try and get some exercise while you’re at work. Think how often you end up staying in your office on your lunch break. Instead, why not take a walk? It may not seem like much, but if you did that every day, you’d be walking 5 hours a week, which is a pretty great start towards getting some more exercise. On the weekends and in the evenings, take up a sport or an active hobby like hiking. The key is to find ways that you can get exercise while also doing things you enjoy.
5. Exercise will Bring in More Energy in Body
You can lose 10 pounds fairly quickly by starting a serious exercise regimen, of course, but that’s not necessarily the best way to do it. If you make your exercise like work, it’ll start to feel like work, and it will become tempting to put it off and avoid it. If you incorporate exercise into your daily routine, however, it won’t seem like work at all – it will be fun. And the best part of all is that the more you exercise the more energy you’ll have: instead of being tired when you come home from work, you’ll feel like doing something active. Before you know it that 10 pounds you lost might become 20.
