Follow your dreams, work hard, practice and persevere. Make sure you eat a variety of foods, get plenty of exercise and maintain a healthy lifestyle, Sasha Cohen.

Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it, Sasha Plato.

You should first consult with your physician to determine if exercising is safe for you and what type of exercise program may or may not be best fit based on your physical ability and overall health.

Your body is your main asset. Take good care of it! Live an active lifestyle, play sports, and engage in regular physical activities.

If you like running, cycling, or walking briskly, there are many free workout and fitness apps on the market that can help you achieve your goals, track and keep your pace, and have fun. It is a good idea to change your setting and prevent accidental calls:

  1. Lock your phone and use a passcode.
  2. Settings, Utilities, Pocket Mode (enable).
  3. Settings, Security, Smart Lock, On-body detection (disable).
  4. Use Ask to Call, Call Confirmation, etc. They will ask you if you really want to call the number that was, maybe somehow accidentally, dialed.
  5. If you use an app like Pace Control, go to their settings: Prevent accidental clicks (enable), Keep screen on (disable).
  1. Wear comfortable clothes appropriate for movement, e.g., sports bra and leggings, yoga clothing, etc. Avoid wearing heavy and chunky jewelry, worn-out sneakers, putting on make-up, or watches.

  2. Use a mat or a blanket to increase your comfort when you are doing yoga poses and exercises. Find a place that is both clean and quiet. Turn off smartphones and electronic devices.

  3. The most important thing is not about learning amazing or very hard poses, but committing yourself to pursuing your goals. It is about creating a healthy lifestyle rather than going to the gym for a few days, training very hard, and then, procrastinate. Daily practise with enthusiastic perseverance is the key.

  4. Find a schedule that is right and convenient for you. It should include at least three days a week. Train with focus and commitment, and at an intensity where you sweat and breathe faster, but can still talk.

  5. Start with warm-up and stretching exercises. It is essential to stretch your muscles before and after exercising in order to prevent injury and soreness. If you practice yoga, the asanas should be done slowly and breathing plays a crucial role while performing them.

  6. If you feel dizzy, chest pain, or short of breath, stop immediately, and consult a physician.

  7. Of course, there are many options: swimming, dancing, cycling, gymnastics, pilates, etc. It is very important to have a good time, so choose the one that best fits you and that you like the most. Physical activity should never be a chore.

  8. How can you enjoy doing physical activities? Listen to music, audiobooks, podcasts or radio while exercising. Try not to do it alone but get a trainer, workout buddy (friend, work colleague, neighbor or a relative), etc. Motivate yourself by setting effective goals.
