6 Ways to Keep Exercising

  • Try something new. Exercise with a friend, or change your workout time.

  • Take it easy. A "no pain, no gain" approach can be dangerous and quickly leads to burnout.

  • Do two things at once. Work out on a ski machine while watching TV, or listen to books on tape while you walk on a treadmill.

  • Start keeping a log. Tracking your progress can keep you motivated.

  • Reward yourself. Consider new workout tapes, shoes or clothes, or an upgrade at your health club.

  • Fit exercise into routine breaks. Climb stairs instead of taking the elevator, or rake leaves instead of using a blower.
