Step 3: Run an Experiment
If you’re inactive, the thought of embarking on an exercise regimen can be daunting. Instead of focusing on the effort involved, take one tiny step toward your goal. “What would happen if you took that 15-minute walk?”
I suggest setting it up as an experiment — even if it’s a single session — to see if it works for you. Pay attention to how you feel during the exercise and afterward. It’s often a tipping point for clients. When they feel the effects of exercise, “that’s where the power is.”
I recall working with a woman in her mid-30s with a stressful desk job who was taking medication for depression. One day, still in her work clothes, she decided to go for a walk. That 20-minute experiment changed her demeanor. “It was like talking to a different person.” With that single win under her belt, she worked up to walking three times a week and reported feeling happier and healthier.
It doesn’t hurt to experiment, just start moving. I’m here if you need help getting started. Contact me or click on my link www.fitguy46personaltraining.com for your free consultation. Make it a great day!!!
