Think of something you like doing or are already doing a little. If you use the stairs, make one extra trip. If you like to dance, put on one song. Make it fun and make it easy and make it tiny. You can expand later.
Working out can feel like just another thing on a long to-do list. But it is the part of the to-do list where you can focus on just yourself and your body. It is a way to care for yourself, and at the end of a workout I always feel better! More centered, I sleep better, and I have more energy the next day.
Set your goal and celebrate your success with each goal succeeded. Change that inner voice as you start and yes eventually that negative voice will be smaller and quieter, speaking up less often.
- How many times you exercise in a day?
- What can motivate you to ensure you won’t quit while getting started?
- How does one fit the exercise habit into their morning routine? Is this something done right before noon or, is there a better time after awakening to start exercising? A set time? Maybe even stepping out of doors in pajamas to reach the mail box considered exercise for eight minutes?
- How do you reward yourself?
- What is a moderate workout I can do in my bedroom?
- If I train constantly, my muscles never get sore. So it becomes routine and boring. What should I do?
- Do you complete your exercise habit in the morning? I often have 6am work meetings, and I sometimes have difficulty getting the exercise in before work.
- What do you do for your morning activity?
- What is your morning exercise of choice?
- How can I remain consistent with exercise and ensure I carry out a routine everyday?
