Starting an exercise program
Sometimes it feels like climbing a mountain would be easier than getting started on an exercise program and sticking to it.

• Start slowly and go at your own pace.

• Choose activities you enjoy.

• Pick a time of day you have time to exercise.

• Write down why you want to exercise and review it often to reinforce your motivation.

Many experts advise that you consult your doctor before starting an exercise program.
