When you are starting out with any exercise or routine try and start off slow and don’t over do it. Try to break what ever it is that you want to do in to short sessions and do them more times a week or a day. So, do a 10 minute exercise twice a day morning and night and then as you get more comfortable you can up it each time. Remember to take your time and go at your own pace.
2. Set realistic goals
Make sure when you set your goals for what you want to achieve for staying active that you make sure they are achievable and specific to you.
