Here are a few tips that'll get you motivated to work out on the days when you really know you should but you're constrained to turn off your alarm and go back to sleep or find a way around the gym on your drive home from work. Some of the tips will work for you, some won't. Pick and choose your personal exciting activity and get ready to fasten yourself to your plan!
Think about what you’re going to feel after your workout. Do you feel re-energized, accomplished and clear-minded? Do you feel swollen with pride of yourself for deciding to work out even when you didn’t feel like it? Occasionally simply to double time the positive results of a workout is adequate to get you going. Remind yourself of your WHY. Why's your workout vital to you? What's your basis to work out? Are you preparing for a race, marathon? Is it a channel for stress liberation? Do you want to breathe an active lifestyle so you can be present for your grandkids? There’s a reason why you'd planned to work out. You just need to remember it!
You may be shocked how many people think that one of the barriers to exercise is having to change in and out of their workout clothes. Taking that first step can be an immense hurdle towards starting your workout. Once you’re dressed, you’ll feel more motivated to go ahead with your workout. We often skip our workout because we don’t want to or don’t have time to complete it. A 10-minute walk is better than the 45-minute run you never did. If you don’t want to do your complete workout, then don’t. Just start the program. If after 5 or 10 minutes you honestly don’t feel any more inclined to work out, then stop. You can skip off for the day because you did it. Giving yourself permission to stop at least helps you start and getting started can sometimes be the toughest part. Get the inspiration that you need. Search online for workouts or pictures of people doing workouts. Maybe you’ll find the latest exercise to try or simply feel more inclined to workout. Just be sure to grant yourself a time limit and stay off of social media platforms and email. Or else, you’ll end up diverting your workout time surfing the net!
