Take advantage of the great outdoors. Exercising outdoors is associated with greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy, greater enjoyment and a more likelihood of repeating the activity at a later date. Pedal a bike, hike up a trail or make a splash in the ocean or lake. Breathe in the fresh air and take in the great scenery. You’ll have so much fun that it won’t even feel like exercise.
