Create more movement throughout your day

If you’re paying attention to your physical health in your 20s, bravo! Many young people don’t realize the importance of being physically fit until their bodies start to creak and ache. Wait a minute, isn’t that supposed to only happen to “old people”? If you don’t take care of your body, it can happen at any age.

It’s never too late to value your physical health, but starting in your 20s is wonderful. Being physically healthy allows you to have the energy and stamina to meet your travel or tourism goals, for example. For couples wanting to conceive, physical health can also improve fertility and encourage a healthier pregnancy. Not to mention, having physical endurance comes in handy when you have a toddler on the loose! 

But even if kids are a far-distant thought (or a complete “no thank you”), physical fitness benefits you in numerous ways by warding off chronic heart disease or diabetes, delaying the onset of osteoporosis, and giving you a mental boost. 

You’ll feel good mentally and physically when you (literally) take strides to improve your physical health, but starting often doesn’t feel good at all! In fact, it can feel downright awful. You don’t have the energy to put in a workout, nor the mental discipline to force yourself to do something that sounds totally miserable.

Push through it. If you’re completely serious about improving your health and living your life without ever being restricted by your endurance or strength, push hard. Working out and eating healthy isn’t as physically difficult as we think it is, but it’s a huge mental challenge that requires focus and willpower. 

That’s why it’s essential to have a workout plan, a fitness goal, an accountability partner, and some stats to measure to keep you motivated. You don’t have to join a gym, but using machines can actually be a fun way to challenge yourself. (Yes — we said fun!)

If you’d rather workout in the privacy of your own home, you can definitely accomplish all of your fitness goals in your living room. Having trouble finding the time? Create more movement throughout the day.

Whether you’re already a fitness guru and are looking for some help getting out of a fitness rut or you’re completely new to a fitness routine, we have plenty of tips to help you get the most out of your workout.
