5. Find out your weaknesses and accept them. Say, you cannot get up early in the morning. If you accept this simple fact, you will never keep on lying to yourself that someday you’d go for a morning jog. Once you accept this truth, you will find a suitable alternative.

6. Seek support. It can be your best friend, your mom or dad, your colleague or your trainer, anyone who you think can support you stick to the fitness goals.
