Sometimes the only thing that’s harder than sticking to your health and fitness goals is coming up with the goals themselves. If you haven’t had time to sit down and write out your list, this weekend might be the perfect time to start coming up with a plan.
Today, the World Health Organization celebrates its annual World Health Day. Although the theme of this year’s World Health Day is focused on aging and health, the World Health Organization says it’s important to maintain physical activity and practice healthy habits early in life.
According to a United States health statistic report released by the Center for Disease Control, only 36% of young adults aged 18-29 get regular physical activity in their spare time as of 2005-2006, and only 26% partake in strength training at least two times each week. The report also states that while obesity rates are rising more slowly than previous decades, more than one-third of adults aged 20 and older are obese.
Want to set some personal health and fitness goals, but aren’t sure where to start? Amy Jones, a Success Skills contributor at Selfgrowth.com, shares the most common goals for maintaining a healthier lifestyle:
