If you find that you have fallen away from your exercise plan for a day, a week, even a month, do not judge yourself harshly as a failure. Just start again. Everyday is a new day, an opportunity for a new beginning. You can begin anew every moment.

*See Savor (Pg.161- 180) for more guidance that will help you adhere to your chosen exercise plan.

Remember to chose exercises that you enjoy! Picking an activity you like greatly increases your chances of sticking with it.

My favorite activities are brisk walking (especially with a lot a trees and fresh air), chi gong, yoga and hiking. What do you do to stay active?
