12. Don’t force yourself to do something you hate.
“If you hate running, don’t do it,” Kneeland says. “Don’t do something that makes you miserable. It will only make you hate exercise that much more and you won’t ever want to do it.”
Instead of forcing yourself to get on the treadmill twice a week, try doing something you actually enjoy like joining a sports team, going on a hike, or taking your dog on more regular walks. If you actually have a good time while you’re exercising, your brain will associate the activity with positive thoughts and make you more likely to do it again in the future.
