    I think most of us have a habit which we see as being quite easy to progress with but others don’t. I struggle to get out there and feel motivated to exercise but I pick up the guitar and play to relieve stress and learn more because I enjoy it. And it’s because of guitar that I can have faith that it’s possible to do the same with exercise … the same with a language … the same with sitting at my desk to work. A habit is something which simply benefits you without mental resistance. Something which you do every day because your enjoyment from it is more powerful than the pain you may find in it.

    Made to Move! Love that! I need to make that my mantra! YOU ARE MADE TO MOVE! SO DO IT ALREADY!!! 😉

    I used to try and force myself to go to the gym after work, and it just never really worked for me. This year, I decided to try and do it in the morning before work. It’s hard, but I am so much more consistent than I used to be. I was also able to hire a trainer to help me put together a workout program and now that I’m lifting weights, I love it! And I feel so much better now that I’m working out consistently. It sounds stupid, but being consistent has helped motivate me to be consistent. I know that doesn’t make sense, but it’s the best way I can explain it.

    stunningly inspiring . thank you

    I love it 🙂

  7. Linda Elliott on January 25, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    Love this video! Do you do videos at home for ballet? I would love do ballet at home.

  8. Pip Herbst Yoga on January 25, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    This is really useful! I am just starting to really love the gym now, as well as teaching yoga. I go because of how it makes me feel not how it makes me look 🙂

  9. Alison Clarke on January 25, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    I take ballet, tap and jazz classes because they don’t feel like exercise! Great tips, especially to take it slow. I’d also add going somewhere that encourages and welcomes all shapes and sizes. If you feel encouraged and not judged you’ll want to go rather than making yourself do it.

  10. Melissa Villegas on January 25, 2022 at 9:11 pm

    I’m a very active person and often get asked how can I exercise so much, and my best tip has always been to find something you love and look forward to do everyday 🙂 whenever they say "I don’t like exercising" I tell them they just haven’t tried the many different activities there are. Some expect they need to do something super intense, but sometimes, if yoga or pilates is what keeps you moving your body, then that’s what’s best for you.

  11. DHANYASRI SANALA on January 25, 2022 at 9:12 pm

    I love you!

  12. Shannon Hayes on January 25, 2022 at 9:14 pm

    Nothing gets me more exercise (and fun!) than playing with nieces and nephews! They LOVE running around, jumping rope, and being picked up (especially during strenuous hikes– who needs a rucksack when you’ve got a toddler?) Haha

  13. evelyn사랑 on January 25, 2022 at 9:15 pm

    I dance kpop 😂

  14. Bobsheaux on January 25, 2022 at 9:16 pm

    At what point does making it a habit actually stick? Best I could do was find an activity I didn’t hate, I stuck at it fairly consistently for a few months, but one day I didn’t feel like it anymore, stopped cold-turkey, and never looked back.

  15. Nikol Fae on January 25, 2022 at 9:17 pm

    Great tips, thank you <3

  16. Sara D on January 25, 2022 at 9:18 pm

You also give really easy, simple tips without over-complicating things. I really enjoy your approach to life. People glorify being busy, but I love simplicity in life. Thanks for the encouragement and the wonderful content!

    Gym membership are expensive 🙃Gym is making me tired i lose my strength to work in my ofc throughout and eve workout is disturbing my morning routine i couldnt even open eyes on time tired in morning AnYTips?

  23. kaye mclaren on January 25, 2022 at 9:26 pm

    I love this video! I’ve been looking for a vid on physical activity to recommend in a book I’m writing and was feeling dispirited after seeing so many boring TED talks or lectures on the psychology and/or physiology of exercise. I wanted something that emphasised doing things you enjoy and helped people become more motivated and this is just perfect. Thanks Meghan!

  24. Mya Andraos on January 25, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    My favorite exercise is sleeping, i do it very regularly and i never get tired of it haha jk

  25. Mariela Merino on January 25, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    I’ve slacked on my fitness for a few months now and I want to get back in the routine again. This video came at a perfect timing!

  26. Carlitos C on January 25, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    It’s very good!! 🙂

  27. Christine C on January 25, 2022 at 9:32 pm

    It sounds silly, but I put a star sticker on the calendar every time I go to the gym. Seeing lots of stars makes me happy and motivates me to keep going.

  28. Marta malcoby on January 25, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    I would love to do ballet! I workout everyday before the kids wake up but ballet is so different, love it! I don’t have time to go outside to class though. Loved your video, as always!!!

  29. Ana Budda on January 25, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    Hi Megan thanks for the lovely tips it’s really works,😘

  30. Beauty Beyond Fear on January 25, 2022 at 9:34 pm

    Hi Meghan! On instagram you mentioned to comment different exercises we enjoy. I would agree with walking and hiking (so much fun especially with others!). By myself I enjoy the spin bike and yoga as well. 😁 I liked that your tips are practical. I always try to come up with a crazy workout schedule of working out for like an hour a day…and it never lasts even a week lol😂

  31. Emily H on January 25, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Thanks for the tips! Just wondering, are you Canadian?

  32. Idek I’m a Potato on January 25, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    You’re so pretty !! Great tips:)

  34. M A on January 25, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    I’m so lazy:( I wish that I can make exercises as a habit

  35. morethanahumanbody on January 25, 2022 at 9:38 pm

    i can’t get rid of the eating disorder mindset : exercise as much as you can everyday ; it is worthless if you work out and not lose weight ;

  36. Eugenia Strauss on January 25, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    You just earned yourself a fan with this video, loved it!

  37. Sher Jack on January 25, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    Great tips 👍

  38. Ana Budda on January 25, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    I just need more self love and compassion, and I’m thankfully for your kindness,🤩

  39. Sunshine4 on January 25, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    What type of ballet slippers are you wearing? They make your foot look so pretty!!! Thanks!!!

  40. Desirée L. on January 25, 2022 at 9:45 pm

    1- Find an activity you love;
    2- Exercise with someone;
    3- Start slow;
    4- Make it a habit;

  41. ItsKelsiesLife on January 25, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    With the days getting shorter, it’s getting tougher to be active, so these tips came at the perfect time! ❤️ thanks girly!

  42. Birte Hagen on January 25, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    I am new here.! Hello

  43. Georgia on January 25, 2022 at 9:49 pm

    Thanks Meghan!! You help so much!!!

  44. Abb on January 25, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    I enjoy running, swimming and walking my dog. I’m also planning to learn to horse ride next year. 🙂

  45. Hasti H on January 25, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    “Our bodies are meant to move” ! I loved this! 👏🏻💪🏻❤️ Thank you Meghan for another inspiring video! 🙏🏻😍✨✨

  46. Sarah Saunders on January 25, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    Love it! 🙂 so motivating!

  47. walkingexercise5 on January 25, 2022 at 9:51 pm

    Doing what I love outdoor walks and indoor walks like Gina B "Torch those calories with this 20 Minute HIIT Walk" and her "Power Walk The Pounds Off 80s Style" here on YouTube as well as Leslie Sansone walks! Also writing what i want to do for the week or a weekly routine in a notebook.
    Love your channel and videos!

  48. Monika S. on January 25, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Finding an activity that I like has been the key for me too. Since I started doing yoga I’m really motivated to work out at home and I feel really proud of that. Yoga challenges me but also makes me feel relaxed and happy. And on some days, like today, I go on a run outside, I also really enjoy that 🙃

  49. rabia on January 25, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    I ate a chocolate cupcake and some galaxy chcolate with cookie crumbles v nice I promise i’ll start tommorrow ! great video

  50. Beka Molnar on January 25, 2022 at 9:53 pm

    I failed even at the first step. I even get way too tired from sex, no activity I’d like
