We have already harped on the necessity of a proper workout routine and the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle, so there is no sense going into a great amount of detail concerning this topic. Suffice it to say that in order for it to be able to operate as efficiently as possible and continue to grow in strength, endurance and flexibility it is necessary for the body to be exercised at least once a day, preferably for thirty minutes to an hour. Try to establish a regular exercise routine you can live with; over-exerting yourself is going to result in both an unwillingness to continue on (and who can blame you when you are pushing yourself far beyond your capabilities?) and the need for an extended period of rest between workouts while the body recovers from the damage inflicted upon it.
In addition, try to regularly “shake up” your daily exercise routine. Although exercising every day is both healthy and necessary, doing the exact same thing every day will result in both you and your body becoming bored with it, which means that you are going to be less likely to workout and your body will receive fewer benefits when you do. Throw in a little variety; go bicycling one day and ice skating the next, then take the following day off from your cardiovascular routine to pay a visit to the weight room. This way you’re never at a loss for things to do and you and your body will be able to anticipate your workout with as much enjoyment as possible.
