Look, if you’ve not noticed it by now on your own and through other people telling you all the time, then you’re not one of those people whose bodies a naturally built in the way people aspire to when they hit the gym and engage in other forms of exercise. There are people who have high metabolic rates — people who can eat and eat and not gain the sort of weight we all dread putting on and there are people whose natural build looks very close to what athletes look like who subsequently only have to engage in just a little bit of physical activity to appear to have the perfect bodies.
It takes a lot of hard work to get your body to look healthy, but a healthy-looking body is indeed a healthy body, of which the benefits you enjoy daily perhaps make for enough of an incentive for you to keep working on your body through healthy eating and exercise.
Life can get really hectic however and even if you’ve previously been diligent in following an exercise regime as part of working towards your health and fitness goals, just one hectic week at work, an illness or any other disruption can make it really hard to get back into full-swing. You effectively feel as if you’re starting all over again and that’s perhaps the biggest barrier to get over.
Whenever this period of a lack of inspiration and motivation hits, if comparing a healthy you to your not-so-healthy, unfit self isn’t enough to inspire you see those health benefits as a reward in itself, then all’s not lost, fortunately. There are some rather hedonistic rewards to draw from following through on getting some good exercise and even eating healthy, which are perhaps not readily thought of by many people who are trudging along on their own health, exercise and fitness terraces.
Fun Exercise to Ease You Back
Who said exercise has to be taxing and always assume the form of some really hard work? While in the end that exercise which is the most demanding does indeed account for the best results, if you want to ease your way back into your regular exercise regime or if you just want to ensure you get your required exercise in more of a fun and refreshing way, it’s perhaps time to explore something like going on a Scenic NSW Horse Riding tour. Ask any horse-rider or someone who has ridden a horse or a camel for the first time and they’ll tell you that you get in much more exercise doing something like that than you would ever have imagined.
Some of the Best Rewards to Look Forward to
The body aches and pains you experience about a night’s sleep after going horse riding or engaging in a similar activity speak a lot about just how much exercise you actually put your body through. The best reward to top things off is going for a deep tissue massage — something you could perhaps become accustomed to doing as a reward for your regular exercise routine.
