Do you have a friend who never misses a day of exercise? Don’t hate them because they’re fit but instead JOIN them!!!
Look below at some of the little things that you’re going to start doing that will add up into big things.
– Research shows that it takes 60 days to form a habit. So, what you’ll need to do is pull out your calendar and circle 60 days from now. You’re going to be surprised at home much you can accomplish during this time.
– Go ahead and “redefine” yourself. If you’re taking a kickboxing class, it’s okay for you to call yourself a kickboxer. If you’re taking a swimming class, call yourself a swimmer. When you commit yourself to an activity and make it part of your identity, you want to keep it up.
– Do you like music? I do! Go ahead and create a playlist that will keep you inspired to keep moving during your workout. Studies show that when you listen to music during exercise, you’ll rev up your endurance by 15 percent.
– Don’t beat yourself up if you miss your “scheduled” workout. Instead, create a backup plan so that you get some exercise in each day. Go ahead and tally up all the small moves in your daily life like when you take the stairs, walk to the store or when you play with your kids.
– Be positive. Go ahead and swap should for want. For example…”I should work out.” is changed to “I want to work out.” Doing this will make it feel like a reward and not a chore.
