Exercise will burn calories and can help you lose weight faster. If you don’t have a regular exercise routine, think about what’s keeping you from being active and then look into ways to overcome the obstacles.  Here are some examples of what your obstacles may be, and what you can do to get passed them to burn more calories!

  • Obstacle: No time, Solution: You only need 5 to 10 minutes to benefit. You can also incorporate activity into your daily routines by parking farther in lots, taking the stairs instead of escalators, etc.
  • Obstacle: No energy, Solution: Keep in mind that exercise boosts your energy levels. Determine the time of day when you have the most energy (i.e. morning, mid-day, or afternoon, etc.) and try to be more physically active during that period.
  • Obstacle: Self-Conscious, Solution: You shouldn’t worry about what other people think. However, you can always exercise in the privacy of your own home. Working out with a friend may also make things more comfortable for you.
  • Obstacle: Afraid of injury, Solution: Consult your physician prior to beginning an exercise routine. Exercise shouldn’t hurt if you build your routine gradually. There are also activities such as swimming, walking or chair exercises that are less weight-bearing on joints.

Consider your obstacles. Whether it’s time, money, weather, equipment, or any other reason you can think of – there is always a solution. There are many ways that you can increase your physical activity level to burn more calories and lose weight.
