2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2011 a happier year — and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge — welcome! This month’s theme is Body. Last week’s resolution was to Get enough sleep. Did you try that resolution? Did it boost your happiness?
This week’s resolution is to Get some exercise (it doesn’t have to be a huge amount).
How about you? Have you found that you feel happier or more energetic when you exercise? In my statistically non-significant survey of the people I know, those who exercise regularly often say they do it for mood-related reasons rather than body-related reasons — and that’s certainly true about me. If you manage to exercise regularly, do you have any strategies to help yourself stay on track?
