If you're trying to find ways to stay motivated to exercise, team sports may be your answer. Joining a team in a sport you love can be just the push you need to keep at it over the long haul. Why? Because you're involved with others, and social interaction is a great way to motivate exercise.
Think about it. You make a commitment and then have to show up for practices and games. You make friends and don't want to let them down. You have fun, and there are often other social activities involved such as parties, meeting for workouts, and going for a bite to eat after a game.
If you're life is busy, joining a team may seem like too big of a commitment. You can always check to see if subs are needed. You can also joining an easy walking team in the neighborhood. Heck, watching your favorite sport on television can also be a great motivator. When I watch a swim meet, it makes me want to get back in that water and do some laps.
Give it a try!
