For good physical (and mental) health, it’s important to exercise according to your personality.
For example, if you know that you have a tendency to become obsessive about high impact running or counting the number of calories you burn on the treadmill, perhaps you should consider joining a group sport that will encourage you get fit whilst also enjoying social time with potential new friends.
If you rush around from task to task, without taking any time to think about how you’re really feeling, you’d probably benefit from participating in a yoga class to help you connect with your body whilst calming your thoughts.
I’ve learnt that a good exercise balance for me includes walking my dog, martial arts, yoga and functional body weight training, with the occasional horse ride when I can find the time.
Exercise should be fun, functional and encourage good health, from the inside out. Work with your personality to create an exercise plan that suits you as an individual, enabling your mind and body to maximize the benefits.
