Don't let excuses get in the way of exercise.

Here's to overcome some common hurdles:

It's boring!
Walk with a friend or join a walking group to make your walks more interesting and social.
This can also help keep you motivated.

I can't afford expensive equipment and memberships.
Walking is cheap.It can be done almost anywhere and all you need are comfortable shoes and clothes.
Many walking groups are free.

It's too hard with young children.
Take your kids with you. put babies and toddlers in a pram and get order children to ride their bike or scooter .look for walking groups especially for mums.

I don't have the time.
make walking part of your day. Walk to public transport, walk the kids to and from school. walk to work use the stairs instead of the lift,park further away from the shops of walk during your lunch break.    

I.m too tried .
Regular brisk walks will actually increase your energy levels.Your alertness and your mood.

I used walking to lose weight. It does work, along with changing your eating habits. That's very important.

I'm on a diet and exercise plan with my far we've helped and encouraged one another...mostly her encouraging me. I think I've always exercised but the diet has been fairly lax...good news is it's working! I'm so glad to not walk this path alone!

Hoping that having the dog to walk will help with the excersize. It's much to easy to be lax in the winter so wishing the warm weather would start anytime now.

Hi Michiko san, great advice for doing exercise. I do tend to give myself excuses for not doing. In fact I haven't walked for a while....gotta start doing again!
