Set Realistic Targets\nIf you\u2019ve not done any proper exercise since gym at school, diving straight into a high-intensity CrossFit class might be a bad idea. Luckily, this isn\u2019t necessary!\n\nInstead, focus on setting realistic goals. If you strive for progress rather than perfection, you\u2019re much more likely to feel and enjoy the benefits of exercising.\n\nThe HHS currently recommends around 150 minutes minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity each week, which is a good place to start.\n2. Know Your Options\nMany colleges offer students access to gym and pool facilities, so it\u2019s worth checking what options you have available. Likewise, joining sports clubs and societies can be a great motivator if you struggle for enthusiasm with exercise.\n3. Stealth Exercise\nRather than a workout plan for ninjas, \u2018stealth exercise\u2019 is how we like to think of physical activity you can work into daily life, such as:\n\n \tWalking to lectures and classes\n \tTaking the stairs instead of elevators\n \tDoing physical housework, like vacuuming\n \tDancing (especially dance classes)\n \tGoing for a walk with friends\n \tMaking the beast with two backs (requires a willing friend)\n\nThere are plenty of other options, too. Our point is simply that there are physical things you can do without ever having to go near a gym.\n4. Multi-Task\nDon\u2019t feel like you have time to go for a run? Find the idea of spending an hour on a treadmill tedious? Then you could always do something else while you exercise, like getting your set reading done for class or listening to a podcast.\n\nObviously this isn\u2019t advisable if you\u2019re doing a sport that requires constant concentration: if you try to read a book while simultaneously white water rafting, you\u2019re likely to end up very wet indeed. Nevertheless, a good book can make time fly on an exercise bike (even when the bike remains resolutely stationary).\n5. Buddy Up\nAs with most things in life, exercise is much less painful if you have someone with whom to share the experience. This should be someone who shares your goals so you can motivate one another while you exercise.\n\nAnd if they\u2019re also happy to go to a bar afterwards, that\u2019s a definite bonus.\nExpert Student Proofreading\nWe hope these tips help you get into a healthy routine, but don't forget your written work while exercising!
