Getting Moving During National Fitness and Sports Month

Unfortunately, frequent exercise is not as common as it should be. May is National Fitness and Sports Month, making the month a great time to renew or make new fitness goals. If you are looking to become more active and exercise more often, remember the following tips.

  • Take breaks if necessary. Don’t burn yourself out on your first workout.
  • Set measurable goals. Work towards your goals over time.
  • Exercise with friends or family. This can make it more enjoyable and keep you motivated.
  • Find an exercise or sport that you love. We love cycling, and it helps keep us in shape because we want to ride often.

Hidden Benefits of Personal Fitness

Frequent exercise and a high level of personal fitness has visible results. But physical benefits are not the only ways it can help. Exercise can improve you mental and emotional health, as well. Team sports can help teach skills of accountability, dedication, leadership, and teamwork. These skills are useful in all parts of life. In addition, the mental health benefits of sports can improve the following areas.

  • Goal setting
  • Self-esteem
  • Stress management
  • Focus
