Are you sticking to your workout?
We know it may be hard to do sometimes. Truth be told, even getting up in the morning is a big challenge some days. It does require discipline and dedication, which sometimes, we don’t have the patience or the time for.
To ensure you would stick to your workout plan moving forward, you may want to take note of the following:
Have shorter workout sessions.
Each sweat session doesn’t have to last for grueling hours; it can be as short as you want it to be. For example, you can do multiple 10-minute program or even 5-minute ones. Go for HIIT, and you will feel like you have been at it for hours, with the same results, if not better. This way, you will stay committed longer. A total of a 30-minute workout in a day sure sounds more appealing than a 2-hour one, don’t you think?
Believe that you can do it.
It isn’t always easy but believing you can do it makes each day easier. Whenever we don’t feel like exercising, we tell ourselves that we have done it yesterday and that if we do it now, we would be done in 30 minutes. The “just get it done and over with” mantra works, too. In the end, always remember that you have got what it takes to finish a 30-minute workout on any given day.
Do it with friends.
It is more fun when you have company, especially if it’s a company you enjoy and want to spend time with. This is the best time to be social when you and your friends have busy schedules. Isn’t it great to catch up while you are sweating it out and aiming for the same thing?
Add more to the resume of your healthy habits.
We know you exercise regularly, and that’s great but how about your eating habits? Sleeping habits? If you haven’t been watching the food you are eating, or how much sleep you get each night, it is time you make conscious effort to make sure they are aligned with your health goals.
May this helps in making your workout plans and healthy habits be long term goals and achieve them, too.
