Yes , from my view , giving yourself a deadline gives some sort of pressure to complete it like getting homework from school . Not giving yourself a deadline will give you no pressure , making it easy for you to push a task to a later date instead of doing it now , the human brain would always go to the easy path if possible
Yes, because setting a deadline gives me a set timeline for my morning. I can always count on being done by that time. That knowledge helps me to start because I know I'll have the rest of the day to do whatever I need or want to do. I don't have to feel as though I'm pushing something back constantly and I enjoy my day more as a result!
A definite yes for me because I work very well with deadlines. But someone may have a different opinion on this, but I personally feel that deadlines help you form some discipline in your life. Once you set a deadline to something and hold yourself accountable for your actions to that particular task, you will see yourself falling into a more disciplined routine. And this discipline will help you in forming amazing habits and you will also see your days becoming more productive and fruitful. Atleast this is how I plan and execute things for myself.
For me it does. When I have deadline its presing me to do it, but also its more disapointing when I dont do it for any reason.
no. Sometimes I do my exercise later in the day and swap things around as long as I do all of my actions throughout my day that’s great.
Personally, giving deadlines is counterproductive. When I set deadlines, I end up putting too much pressure on myself and then I stop everything because I am overwhelmed. What works for me is being gentler on myself and setting realistic goals with the uncertainty of the day in mind. I don't bite off more than I can chew and I am teaching myself to be okay when things don't go as planned and maybe certain goals go unfinished. The important thing to remember is that I tried my best and that is all we can do.
- Any recommendations for easy and short exercises in the morning?
- How do you get out of bed when you’re so tired?
- Do you do the same exercise routine every day or do you mix it up?
- How quickly am I supposed to move from the minimum exercise to something more difficult? Is it okay if I’m still not inspired/motivated to step up my game after a month?
- Are you hydrated?
- What do you do when you just don’t feel like working out/exercising?
- What is your cue? What is your reward?
- What’s the appropriate amount of time to work out after eating?
- Is it better to do light exercise for 90 minutes, or heavy exercise for 30 minutes? The goal is mostly weight loss.
- What do you do when something prevents you from doing your usual exercise method/routine? I have asthma so I can’t run outside. I usually play Step Mania because it gets my heart rate going. But sometimes my tech doesn’t work. And I don’t really have the space to do Zumba or other aerobics. I’ve tried going to the gym, but it takes so much extra time to get ready and leave the house and etc. Difference between spending exactly 30 minutes vs 90 minutes with commuting and getting situated and etc. at the gym. I don’t want exercise to be something I dread doing. Does anyone have something fun they do at home for exercise?
