New To An Active Lifestyle? It Doesn’t Have To Be Hard

If you’re someone who likes to exercise, and get as many of your 10,000 steps a day done in a month as you can, it can seem a little frustrating that other people don’t believe in that kind of lifestyle. Most of the time people are led to believe trying to keep fit is something hard because of all the bodybuilding and gym regimes we see on the TV. But it doesn’t have to be!

When it comes to exercising as much as you can, eating all the right fruits and veg, and kicking any kind of bad habit to the curb, there’s a lot of debate over what the right thing to do is. But all in all, as long as you know your own body and how it reacts to situations, you’ve got this in the bag! So here’s a couple of easy ideas to work with if you’re trying to get more and more into an active lifestyle.

Notice Your Bad Habits

Don’t worry, we all have them and we all need to start noticing them more. You especially need to notice if you’re making excuses for yourself, and how to stop yourself from putting an active lifestyle off and off again because you claim you ‘don’t have the time’ or ‘there’s something more important to be doing right now’…

And once you’ve noticed your bad habits, you can start taking the right steps to doing something about them. And that always starts with a little bit of research. Pages like that of can make you more aware of the solutions to some of the worst problems we can indulge in, so always spend a few minutes or so doing some research to try and make your habits a little healthier to carry on with.

Walk Wherever You Can

Walking is extremely beneficial exercise, and it’s the one mode of transport people are going to be doing from the day they learn to until they lose the use of their legs. It’s an innate response, and until the eggheads invent teleportation, you need to be putting your legs to good use. So to make sure you’re always taking a more active role in your life, try and walk wherever and whenever you can.

When walking, you’re going to be buying anything between 60 to 100 calories per mile, depending on your weight, but you could be burning much more than that if you’re someone who doesn’t tend to exercise very often. And 100 calories is loads when you can polish a mile off in 10 to 20 minutes!

Being new to an active lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to immediately jump in, or that you’re doing something wrong. So simply try building up to going to the gym and going for 10k marathons!
