Do something you enjoy

There's nothing worse than doing something you don't want to do or have no interest in. It's a known fact that people who have to do things they don't like normally find it harder to get through that task. So why do the same thing with exercising, because that sure won't motivate you to do it again. Just because you're exercising doesn't mean you have to follow some of the more common ways to get active like using exercise machines. Maybe you like to ride bikes, play tennis, roller blade, run, power walk, play baseball, walk, play soccer, jump rope, do gymnastics, or whatever else you can think of, the options are endless! With all these options chose something that would actually make you want to get up and get moving.
