Honesty speaking, I don't know how to build stamina, but I try to wake up with a get up and go attitude towards my goals because it's something I think I need to do for me and my health and to me that's important. So I guess the first step to building stamina is having the mind set to accomplish the task at hand. Hope this helps
It takes practice in order to have the self-discipline that I have now and one way I do that is by reminding myself what I'm supposed to be doing, why I'm doing it, and how does it affect me in a positive way. Those reminders help me align my goals with my values and give me the determination to achieve and then succeed. Whenever I am in a rut or I fail at a task I just make sure to pick up where I left off instead of using it as an excuse to continue passing on it. Also, I try to reach out for help whenever I need it or have a friend to support me and hold me accountable on my actions.
This is not easy. In the morning I start as soon as possible. I even sleep a bit while making breakfast haha. It means that I don't think too much and I just do my morning routine. Now, after 2 weeks, my body and brain need water, a meal and work when I wake up.
Best way for this is cardio. Start with some light exercise. You can look up a running schedule to build up to more. Start with intervals! If running is not your thing, try: cycling, rowing or swimming. Don't overdo it! Build up carefully and add length when you feel that you can handle it.
- How do you keep exercising interesting? I don’t want to hit a plateau.
- I only do calisthenics. I have been doing core training, push-ups, and pull-ups every day for a few months. I’ve been stuck at around 20 max pull-ups for months and can’t seem to get stronger. I do different variations every day so I almost never do the same exercise 2 days in a row. My question is would it be better to take rest days on core exercises? And should I focus on certain muscle groups instead of doing everything in a day? When I take a rest day I feel like I’m weaker the next day, so I try and take as few as possible. But I’m just not sure if it’s my program. Also, if anyone knows of some great calisthenic exercises to get shredded it would be greatly appreciated. I need a good calisthenic workout program.
- How do you find an exercise you enjoy that doesn’t cost too much?
- Is it necessary to sign up for a goal (e.g. a 5k run) to keep your exercise on track?
- How do you find exercise habits for disabled people? I’m finding it a challenge to several things. I can’t jog or run. At the moment I also have broken ribs so I can only walk short distances. Is there anything else I can do?
- Do you find exercising with a friend or partner more rewarding than exercising alone?
- What do you do for better sleep?
- How do you prepare for your morning routine? Does it start the night before?
- How can I stop planning things but never finishing them?
- What commitment devices do you use to make sure you complete your exercise habit?
