Everyone has different motivations in their life, based on their goals and values. Need a boost, a reminder, or some ideas for motivation? We GOT you:
- Think about the outcome you want from working out. Is it physical, emotional, mental, or all of the above? Get specific with it. Write it down and put it somewhere you will see it every day.
- Don’t overthink it, JUST DO IT. Think about it for too long and you either talk yourself out of it or wait so long that you no longer have time to do the thing. Put your shoes on and go. (see Mel Robbins 5 second rule video for inspiration).
- Stay positive and keep it fun. Name a few things you like about fitness- like the way it makes you feel, the energy you get from it, or ______. Like most things in life, keeping it fun and positive will increase your chances of wanting to do it again.
- Make a plan and know it’s not always going to be convenient. Schedule time for fitness into your weekly schedule. You might have to get up earlier then you want some mornings or make time for it on your lunch break. If it’s something that you want, you have to make space for it and only YOU can do that (you can apply that #lifehack to every aspect of your life).
