For myself focusing on breaking it down into small steps and focusing on each one in the present works best. For example, I don't tell myself "Go excersize now, I tell myself "Go to the room with the yoga mat". Once I've sat down, I turn on an excersize program from YouTube and take it step by step. Once I start doing it more it gets easier each time to do it more automatically
There are different ways for staying motivated. One of the ways is to keep on doing it. Set a reminder for yourself or ask someone you know to remind you. Another way to stay motivated is by searching for someone you like to follow. Like for yoga, I follow the YouTuber Yoga with Adrien. By follow, I mean I like the way she stretches, and has a video for lots of things. There’s a video for becoming more flexible, there are videos on inversions, etc. Another way is to do it with a friend/family member because it’s much more fun to do it with someone else. Or you can even do it with a pet.
I hope this helps 🙂

- 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?
