The best thing I did to help with motivation is create a routine. I get up every morning and workout. I also have visual cues in my bedroom. I’ll put out my exercise clothes the night before.
If I still don’t want to get out of bed, I remember my why. Why I am going to the gym? My why is my kids and being the best version of myself for them.
Ask yourself how you’ll feel if you don’t do what you need to. If I don’t workout now, I know I’ll be cranky all day.
Even all these things don’t help me feel it some days. It’s those days when you don’t feel motivated that matter most. Do it anyway. Show up anyway. You’ll feel better once you do.
If I still feel 'blah', i understand that its ok and focus on the easier tasks instead of the whole routine.
- What are some healthy breakfast options?
- How do you keep motivated to practice a habit when there is someone who pokes fun at you?
- Any ideas for exercises that I can do in the morning in the bathroom before taking a shower?
- How do you make the exercise feel good, and not feel like a chore? Even if it’s just for 5 minutes in the morning.
- Does anyone have any suggestions for routines? Apps you use or how you make up your own?
- I see the app working for me. I am now recommending it to every person looking for a way to break a bad habit. What are some ways you’ve motivated your peers to build better habits with you?
- How do you not fall asleep when trying to meditate first thing in the morning?
- Where do you run into trouble when trying to keep an excercise habit up? How do you get through it?
- What do you do to halt cravings? Mine are mostly for bread and for sweets.
- I’d love to hear about other great workout programs people have tried that kept them motivated and felt and saw a noticeable difference.
