  1. The Kinds of ExercisesWhen you are planning on exercising, it is important to do something easy at first. Your body may not be prepared or used to physical activity, so starting out by running a mile every day is probably not a good idea. This will just tire you out and you will quickly lose your motivation. This is why it is so important to do something simple at first! Walking is a good exercise to start out with and you can do something such as walk around the block for thirty minutes a day, and once your body gets stronger you can increase the difficulty of the exercises you are doing. Eventually, when you are ready you can begin doing more effective and fun exercises like cycling, swimming, hiking, or even running. The sky is the limit!

It can help make you feel younger, make you stronger, give you more energy, keep your mind sharp, reduce your chances of receiving life-threatening diseases, and it can even help make you happier!
