”Make haste slowly. Haste makes waste” (Benjamin Franklin). Proper body mechanics are crucial toward preventing injury and maintaining life-long healthy exercise routines. Prior to initiating an exercise program, obtain clearance from your medical provider regarding how intense you should work out based on recent physical fitness experience and any previous or current medical conditions.

Furthermore, to mitigate the amount of time directed toward sedentary living, such as television watching, a person may take the batteries out of the controller and place them in a faraway place or on a high shelf. It will take conscious effort and willpower to put the batteries back in. One can even place the television power cable in a distant location to further divert television watching and promote a healthier routine. More radical approaches would be to get rid of the television, cable or subscriptions all together. Help yourself make life easier by making poor habits more inaccessible and difficult to do, while making good habits easier and more accessible. Go to bed in your workout gear or have fitness items next to the bed to minimize excuses for not exercising.
