Now is the time to break those mental barriers and get our sweat on!
Here are the top 6 effective tips that motivates you to work out:
Let’s start by changing our mindset toward working out. I know by saying workout you feel tired already and that’s what we need to change. Think of it as a reward system by which you have to work hard for it and then you get a good result in the end. Shift your thinking from couch potato mentality to thinking like an athlete. This may sound like a big challenge, but it’s not as big a leap as you think. As people say if you really want it, you will make an effort for it. So putting a lot of effort is one of the key as well.
If you want to be a little extra and if you think buying cute workout clothes will make you feel motivated then do it. Every time you see on your closet it will remind you that it’s time to work out. Find something that fits you and makes you feel good when you wear it. Bright colors or all black, whatever you prefer. Your body, your choice.
One of the basic excuses of not working out is they don’t have time. Well the solution to that is to make a time for it. If you put your workouts in your calendar every week, you can’t make excuses. Think of these as appointments as time for yourself. You’ll see, planning helps.
You also need to hang around with people that make you feel capable of reaching your goals. It’s so great to combine exercise with social time – your friends motivate you and help you push through a tough workout.
Taking baby steps isn’t bad. When you started working out you don’t have to set unrealistic goals. Take your time right small goals that you know you can do and then if you’re ready you can upgrade your goals. And checking off a list every time you accomplished them gives you a satisfaction.
This one is a MUST HAVE. I’m sure everyone agrees that working out with LIT music is 10 times more better than without them. It keeps you hype and in the right mood to get that sweats rolling. Put up your playlist with your favorite songs and turn them up when you’re feeling too tired to change your mood to workout mode.
