Quit Smoking With Exercise

When you decide to stop smoking, you’ll bring on

other changes in your life as well. Smoking is a

very addictive habit, meaning that it is very hard

to quit. There are a lot of changes that take place,

although exercise can be a big help to you when you

decide to quit.

Try to set a new routine, such as working out or

going to the gym. If that isn’t possible, you

should try waking up earlier and going for a short

walk. If you can turn that walk into a run or a

jog, it is going to be very stimulating and the best

way that you can start your day.

Keep in mind that exercise doesn’t really mean

pumping metal. If you don’t have the time to stop

by the gym every day, then it isn’t really that big

of a problem, as you can always choose to workout

at home.

Whether you choose to workout at home or at a gym,

you should always remember that regularity is the

key. It isn’t getting started that’s the difficult

part, it’s sticking to a regular exercise program

that is difficult and proves to be stumbling block

for most people.

Some people have a great start. They will buy

track suits, gym wear, running shoes, and a lot

of other gear, so their first day at the gym is

almost like a celebration. As the days go by,

they find it very difficult to meet the demands

and their routine will slow down a lot and finally

come to a complete exercise burnout.

One mistake that several people make is choosing

the evenings to exercise. If evenings fit your

lifestyle, then it’s fine. For most people however,

the evening hours are when they are completely

pooped. By the evening most of us are drained,

and simply too tired for exercise. Therefore, it

is always best to set some time aside for exercise

in the morning.

In the morning, wake up a half an hour or so

earlier, put on your shoes, and hit the road. Most

roads are less crowded in the morning and less

polluted as well, making it a wonderful and relaxing

way to start the day.

You should also steer clear from the coffee and try

tea instead. If you are moving around in the house,

try playing music. You can also redecorate your

room by adding a few pictures around. When you

redecorate, you should get rid of everything

that reminds you of smoking.

Plan your day where you’ll have something fun to

do at the end of the day. It doesn’t need to be

something that involves money, as you don’t want

to end up bankrupt. Spending time with family,

playing games, or going for a walk with your

family are all good activities.

Watching television doesn’t really fit into the

list. The reason is because television isn’t

something that demands a lot of attention. You

can easily do something else while you are

watching television.

You should also make a list of things that build

up your stress and try to avoid them. If it

isn’t possible, you should try to find out some

some ways to bust stress and use them. Whatever

you do, you shouldn’t use stress as an excuse

to start smoking.

There are many other methods that you can use to

beat stress. You can try breathing exercises,

mediation, or even music. Another great way to

beat stress is using the distressing ball. If

you don’t have one or access to one, you can

always wiggle your fingers and toes. This too

is a great and natural method to beat stress.
