Finding activities that you enjoy is the key for adopting and maintaining an exercise behaviour.

Recommendations for improving motivation for physical activity:

  • Move in ways that make you feel good
  • Focus on the immediate benefits from exercise
  • Reframe exercise as something that gives rather than takes
  • Be mindful of your nutrition & physical activity and make informed choices 
  • Set realistic goals
  • Surround yourself with supportive people
  • Practice self-compassion – Be kind to yourself and give yourself a break if you mess up!
