Its Time to Spring Forward!

Daylight Savings

Daylight Savings Time starts this month. Get ready for the sun to shine a little longer in the afternoons. The weather is also getting warmer. Which is great news for the many people who start their “spring cleaning” by getting serious about exercise. Remember, small changes go a long way toward achieving your goals. Commit to an exercise program. Set some goals. You can have fun doing it!

Hold yourself accountable for your goals. If you tell people, whose thoughts and opinions you respect, about your goals, you will be more likely to stick to them. Having both short- and long-term goals can help as you progress. A short-term goal might be doing 5-10 minutes of gentle stretching exercises 3 times per week. Do so consistently. In the long term, you might try adding cardiovascular exercise. Again consistency is a key to a successful exercise regimen.
