The good news is that you don't need to go to the gym in order to exercise at home.

Starting An At-Home Exercising Habit

In order to make this habit a long-lasting one, we must be able to take into account the level of where we are starting. We can do this by:

  • Downloading an exercise app or watching online workouts. Having a personalized smartwatch is optional, but studies show that it is helpful to have one.
  • Finding enough space at home to work out. A space that's tall enough for us to stand in and long enough to lie down in.

The 'Best Exercise'

There is no 'best exercise,' only the best exercise that is suited for us. In order to figure out the best kind of exercise for us is that it needs to be able to hit these three requirements:

  1. The exercise is considerate of our time
  2. The intensity of our exercise or how hard you want to work; and
  3. If we enjoy doing the exercise.

It doesn't have to be complicated. We have preferences but when we're at the starting point, we need to remember that this habit is for our long-term satisfaction.

Home Workouts: Staying Motivated

In order to keep ourselves motivated, we must set a goal that is achievable. For a habit to stick it must be easy enough for us to fulfill.

It's like aiming to exercise twice a week because it shows a comparatively similar improvement to those who train 3x a week or wanting to be able to jog for 10 minutes straight without stopping. Always start small and build up incrementally.

Tell your friends and family about your goal so that they can help you prise off of the sofa during your "off-days."
