Tips for Working Out at Home When It’s The Last Thing You Want To Do
Take a moment, think about what types of activities you enjoy, and then do some research. From fitness apps and websites (like this one, ahem) that transform your phone into a personal trainer to live stream videos that turn your living room into a fitness studio, there are plenty of ways to get guidance, motivation, and variety. With a little bit of internet research and soul-searching, you can easily find a fitness routine that will work for you.

Prioritize exercise by blocking out time on your calendar and then planning your days and weeks around those blocks.
