It works well for me.
2. Keep going
Focus on the little things you like. It can be a taking a walk or doing yoga. Make sure you do it every day… Choose a time of the day. Make it a habit. Begin with including one such habit. Rotate it with other such healthy habits. You may go for a run or may simply work out at home. That way it won’t be monotonous for you.
