Monitor the activities that you do on a daily basis. Eliminate tasks that are not of high priority and fit in physical activities in your daily routine. Incorporate chores with physical activities. Do things such as walking the dog, exercising while watching television or parking at a distance from your parking spot.

Add things to your exercise that will encourage you to overcome physical barriers. Sign up for exercise classes and try new exercises. Use a new exercise machine along with your other exercise equipment that you have.

Find someone who will be your exercise buddy. Sometimes having someone to exercise with can motivate you more. This will also help to make the time pass quickly.

Set an exercise goal that is realistic. Start by setting a short-term goal and a time frame when you will achieve it. When you achieve your short-term goal, slowly advance to a long-term goal. Achieving your goals will motivate and help you to overcome physical barriers.
