If you’re thinking, “This is tougher than I hoped,” please don’t feel bad, you’re not alone.
50% of people who start a physical activity programme will stop within 6 months. Every year people start being active, give up and then restart at a later date, or never start again.
There are many reasons why it is hard to stick with an activity programme. Some of the comments we have heard are:
- “I don’t feel like I am achieving any benefits from being active, so what is the point?”
- “I have too many other things going on at the moment, activity is not my priority.”
- “I don’t feel like the people around me are supporting to me and I don’t want to do it alone.”
- “I’m just not enjoying it anymore.”
At MoveMe we want to help you through these struggles so that you don’t give up. And if you have already given up, then don’t beat yourself up about it. Just fish out your trainers from under the bed and give it another shot.
