Spring is here and warmer weather has many of us increasing our activities outside the house and getting more exercise.

One of the best way to improve your health is to go for a walk, some people run but a lot of us are not conditioned for that type of stress on our bodies.

Walking is just as beneficial when it comes to getting fit and losing weight.

One of the biggest factors in maintaining a healthy lifestyle is motivation, the big question is finding a way to harness that motivation and make the commitment to be consistent.

Alison Phillips, an assistant professor of psychology at Iowa State University in Ames, says it's easier to accomplish if you focus on cues that make going for a walk or to the gym automatic.

Finding ways to make your routine a habit rather than a chore, following a daily routine can give you the confidence to a healthy long life.

We would all like to have those rock hard defined bodies, but the reality for most of us that's not going to happen, so focus on how exercising makes you feel, that's the real benefit we all get from a daily routine.

Don't try to do too much, that will only cause you to dread doing it.

Set a bottom line goal for each day, even if its just a 30 minute walk, you can add other things like working your abs, or resistance training, but always complete your bottom line goal each day.

It always nice to have a partner to work out with, you can challenge each other and prevent one of you from stalling out on your daily goals.

Spring is the perfect time to start your goals to a healthier life.
