Health Tip of the Day

How to Stick With an Exercise Program

Exercise for yourself, not someone else. Don't do too much, too soon. Exercise close to work or home. Work out with friends. Choose enjoyable, varied activities that you can alternate throughout the week. Compete with yourself to attain your own personal best.   Give yourself a non-food reward for hitting a goal.
