Health Tip: Make Exercise A Daily Habit How To Stick To Your Schedule

Choosing the right exercise program is one of the first steps toward sticking with your exercise goals. Try these suggestions to make exercise a tough habit to break, provided by the American Academy of Family Physicians:

· Plan to exercise at a certain time every day, so it becomes part of your schedule.
· Write up and sign a contract, where you agree to exercise.
· Mark your calendar with a daily appointment for exercise.
· Keep a diary of all of your exercises. Log everything you do, and your progress.
· Have your doctor write out an exercise prescription, including how much exercise you should do and how often.
