How to Stop Being a Couch Potato

Sometimes all you want to do after a hard day is plop down in front of the TV and veg out until it’s time for bed. There’s nothing wrong with an occasional evening spent doing nothing, but the problem for many people is that being a couch potato can quickly turn into a long-term state of affairs. If you’re having trouble finding the motivation to get off the couch, we’ve got a couple of suggestions to help you put down the television remote and start living.

How to get more energy

Start an Exercise Routine

You don’t have to commit yourself to a full bodybuilding routine, but setting aside some time every day to do basic exercises is good for your health and will get you off the couch. The more you exercise, the better shape you’ll be in, the better you’ll feel, and the more motivated to stay active you’ll be.

Shut Off the Electronics

As convenient as the plethora of computers, tablets, and other electronic devices at our disposal are, they can make it hard to concentrate on anything not connected to the internet. Create a “electronics-free” day every week, where you stay away from the computer and TV, and read a book or take up another non-digital activity instead.

Eat Healthy Snacks

Your diet can have a profound effect on your health and how you feel. When you only pig out on junk food and TV dinners, you will have less energy to do physical activities, reinforcing your couch potato habits. Put down the crackers and grab some carrot sticks instead.
