4 Ways To Motivate You Back Into Exercise



We all know a healthy lifestyle is good for us. However, getting the motivation to get off the sofa and become more active is something many of us have problems with. Perhaps you are having that issue at the moment. You know your body is out of shape, but you may have a hundred excuses why exercise isn’t for you.

Here at Reanaclaire.com, we have already considered some of the reasons why people give up on exercise. However, we do so at our peril. In this article, we will list four ways you can motivate yourself into an active lifestyle.


Exercise can be fun

We give up on exercise when it becomes a chore. Going for a run every morning, or spending too much time at the gym, can become a routine that we can quickly become bored of doing. Instead of taking part in activities that you don’t enjoy all that much, find something to do that will burn off those calories while giving you a smile on your face.

Take the time to think about activities you might enjoy doing. For example, you might join a local Zumba class, go for walks in the countryside, or spend more time playing sports with your family and friends. There are sure to be ways you can keep fit while having fun at the same time, so don’t get stuck in a rut with traditional methods.

Exercise can be fashionable

If fashion is your thing, you can still work out while looking good at the same time. There is some fantastic Adidas sports gear at Theiconic.com.au, so if you are put off exercise because your running gear is showing its age, stock up with something new.

You might also consider the great deals at Thewest.com.au, so fill up your wardrobe with the latest fashion to give you the incentive to get your body back into shape.

Exercise can make you feel good

A lack of exercise can make us feel sluggish and tired. Therefore, we might struggle within our daily activities in life, such as spending time with the kids or dealing with our tasks at work. When we exercise, chemicals are released into our brain which energizes us and gives us a clearer focus. This is why many health professionals advocate exercise to those suffering from depression, as it can lift low moods. So, forget the notion that exercise will leave you feel worn out, you will gain more energy and start to find more enjoyment in the things you do in life.

Exercise will help you live longer

Finally, this should be all the incentive you need to get off the sofa. People who don’t exercise are at higher risk of heart disease, as well as many other health problems. Head to Healthdirect.gov.au to find out exercise can improve your health. Of course, a healthy diet should also complement your exercise, ensuring your body can fight off illnesses and stay strong.


You have a life worth living, so make sure you have the time to live it!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
