Doing that can prompt you to be more active, and make exercise a part of your everyday life. That’s according to Bangor University in the UK. They found that putting a visual cue somewhere you’ll see it all the time makes people more likely to follow through and work out. It needs to be something you always use when you exercise – like your water bottle, ear-buds or running shoes. The physical reminder boosts activity in the brain region linked to organization and planning, and literally doubles your odds of becoming a regular exerciser.
