Exercising Effectively

  1. Step 5 Vary your routine.
    It's great when you find an exercise that you enjoy. And there's no reason to give up something you love, like yoga or swimming. However, it can be beneficial to vary your exercise routine. Your body will respond positively to new challenges and you'll see greater results when you switch things up.[7]
    • Your body will get used to a regular routine and will eventually start to spend less energy when you exercise. That means you'll burn fewer calories and might notice a plateau in your fitness goals.
    • Try doing a mix of strength training and cardio.[8] For example, try running for two minutes, then stopping to do some core exercises, such as a plank or crunches. You can switch up the order of your exercises and add new ones to your routine.
    • If you prefer to work out indoors, try using cardio equipment like a treadmill. You can visit a gym or purchase your own. You may even be able to find used equipment to purchase.
    • Try changing your routine every two to four weeks to start seeing some faster results.

Eating Right

  1. Step 4 Read labels.
    Pay attention to the nutrition labels on the foods that you buy. The information listed here can help you make healthy choices about what to put in your body. When reading labels, pay specific attention to the amounts of sugar, fat, and calories that are listed. You can see how much of the recommended daily allowance of sugar, for example, you should aim for.[10]
    • Pay attention to serving size. For example, if you want to have a bag of chips, read the package to see if the information tells you the calorie count for the whole bag. Sometimes, a third of the bag is considered a full serving.
    • If you have hypertension, you may need to watch your salt intake. Make sure to read how much salt/sodium is in each product to make sure that you do not consume more than 1,500 mg a day.[11] Canned foods and pre-prepared meals are often full of sodium.
    • There are multiple different names for most ingredients. For example, sugar has at least 61 different names, including sucrose, high fructose corn syrup, dextrose, and rice syrup.[12] If you are trying to avoid a particular ingredient, make sure that you can recognize all of its different names.

Having a Healthy Mindset

  1. Step 3 Don't compare yourself to others.
    It can be tempting to judge yourself based on how other people look. But experts say that comparing yourself to others can be damaging. For instance, it can lower your sense of self-worth. That can lead to lower self-esteem, and lower energy levels.[15]
    • Make your own goals. Trying to look like someone else isn't going to help you achieve your goals. Instead, assess your fitness level by noting if you've made improvements and if you can see and feel a difference in your body.
    • Think about your body frame size. Everyone is different. Some people have small frames, while others have a large frame. Yours might be medium. You can figure out your frame size by measuring the circumference of your wrist and consulting a height chart. Remember, if you have a large frame, you will have different weight goals than someone who is naturally smaller.
    • Try keeping a daily journal, where you record positive statements about yourself. You can use this journal to track your exercise and diet, or you can just write down happy, self-affirming thoughts to keep you motivated.
