If you haven’t been exercising lately, it’s not too late for you to do it. Not motivated to do it? Here are 5 ways to help you get started:
1. Set a Goal
It’s important to have a goal for everything you wish to pursue. Your goal has to be realistic and achievable. Write it down a piece of paper or a small note where you can simply stick it somewhere, even on your fridge door. You can even have it displayed on your computer screen. That way you’ll always be reminded.
2. Jot Down Everything You Eat
Writing down every food you eat is a commitment and it requires discipline. Not many individuals are capable of doing it – and it’s pretty normal if you missed a day. This habit is very good for you as it helps you to be more productive and disciplined. It also shows how much you care about achieving your goals.
3. Download Some Good Tunes
While you’re working out, keep yourself busy and accompanied by good, upbeat songs. Get an MP3 player and have it in your pocket while you sweat yourself at the gym. ‘Lose Yourself’ is a cool motivating song. Check it out if you haven’t heard of it!
4. Team Up with a Friend
Your workout session would be more fun when a friend tags along! Why not invite a friend or some friends to join you too? Be it at the gym or at the park for a jog, a companion will keep you motivated. If the two of you share the same vision – which is to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle – that’s great! If you’ve got a dog, take your furry friend with you because a dog will never say NO to playtime (unless it’s sick of course!).
5. Reward Yourself
After the hard work, don’t hesitate to reward yourself. Your reward can be just about anything. It could be a glass of wine in the weekend or a relaxing session at the spa.
