The celebration I do keeps me motivated. I like feeling proud to have accomplished something. My workout may be minor. Like a few squats or pushups. But I celebrate that I did something when I could have opted to do nothing.
Exercise is on my list and I want to check it off. My morning routine is Medication, water, Breath, devotional, breakfast, and then walking. I do a happy dance. That concludes my morning routine. I want to be able to check off all those things and move on with my day.
I reflect on how good it felt to get it done. That motivates me to do the ironing and prep it takes to get everything ready the night before, so I can do it again tomorrow!
I love having a brief stationary bike session after breakfast as a sort of digestif. Its nice just to listen to somethjng, as the intensity keeps me off my phone and provides a brief pause without the risk of stopping altogether that just sitting or laying down would
Personally, I'm not a huge fan of planning, so I never set a specific time. But if I'm bored during the day, instead of mindlessly searching the internet, or checking the fridge, I do some exercise.
Engaging in physical activity keeps up your energy levels (along with eating the right foods of course). You don’t have to hit the gym or do a specific workout routine every single day. Sometimes doing body weight squats or pushups for a few reps is enough to get the blood pumping through your body. If calisthenics or going to the gym isn’t your thing yet, do something else that gets your heart going. Something like dancing, doing yard work, or even going for a brisk walk.
I used to have amazing will power and the drive to exercise when I was younger. Now, not so much. So for me, the workout just absolutely has to be fun and engaging in some way. Whether it's listening to an audiobook while on the treadmill or playing a VR exercise game, it helps me to want to do it.
