Thank you so much N16351D for your thoughtful and insightful reply. Now that I have thought about it, I agree that keeping different activities in the space they are designed for may be helpful for me.

Again, thank you for your helpful input

I just wanted to get other opinions is all. Isn't that what a message board is for?

You will be the one to best answer your question for yourself. I can tell you what I learned about myself which may be helpful.

I tend to become easily distracted so have to separate visual space for different activities. I sleep in the bedroom (no TV there!), study at the library desk, cook and eat in the kitchen (not the living room in front of TV), go to work at my job (not home!) exercise either outside or at the fitness club gym, etc. Different spaces have a different mindset for me. I am not one who can exercise at home because that is where I work (laundry, dishes, cooking, paperwork, cleaning floors, etc.) and that work is never completed.

It did help me to create spaces for activities and I needed separate ones. Maybe your "relaxing" room is not the space to exercise. Some people can do it, but not me.

Why would you ask what works for other people? it's YOUR house, do what works for YOU.

Hello -

I am looking for opinions on if it's better to work out in the living room where I currently do as my Wii is hooked up there or if it would be better to move it in the guest room and do my working out in that separate room?

As I said I work out in the living room as that is where I am most of the time when I'm home, but should I use that room for just that; relaxing and watching TV and use the guest room as the place I go when I work out?

What works best for you and why?

Thanks in advance for your input :)
