Take advantage of a warm spring weekend to overhaul your attitude toward exercise. In fact, don't even think of the word workout. "Exercising shouldn't be a struggle—instead of dreading it, think of it as the nicest gift you can give to yourself," Martin says.
This weekend, if the thought of huffing and puffing on the treadmill sends shivers down your spine, use a free morning to check out a class at that yoga or Pilates studio you've been wanting to try.
An even better idea? Escape the gym and reap the incredible mood-boosting benefits of exercising outdoors. Research shows that simply being outside can help you feel more alive and boost energy levels and well-being.
"Bottom line: Don't worry about what workout is trendy right now and simply get back to basics," Ravich says. "Re-discover sports or activities you used to love but haven't played in a while: Go for a hike, take a bike ride, or play tennis. Just do whatever you enjoy and works for your lifestyle."
