Just Do It?

"It's easy to think of good reasons to exercise: feel and look
better, and protect yourself against heart disease, diabetes, and even
colds and flu. But rational thinking probably isn't enough to get you
moving, according to a study of 61 college students published in the
Journal of Applied Biobehavorial Research.
In contrast, researchers found that thinking of practical ways to
be more physically active led students to get more exercise and become
more fit. For example, rather than thinking about the fact that exercise
can help you lose weight, think of a good place to take a walk and schedule
a time to do it, alone or with a friend."
