Break the task into pieces. If it still feels overwhelming, break it into still smaller pieces. Keep breaking it down into smaller and smaller pieces until you have one tiny action you can start with. If it seems pathetically small, great. Do that one tiny little action, then celebrate. You have started!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
1. I remember "why" am I doing this and remind myself everytime I tend to lose my path.
2. I set my alarms with motivational songs. When the beginning is right, rest automatically follows
3. If I lose motivation after I gave been on the path for a while, I tell me "Don't waste/disrespect what has already been invested i.e. take it all the way now, it's my obligation to myself"
4. Last and the most powerful one is to remember, time once gone will not come again. Either I can win now or can remain a loser forever.
You are doing it for yourself. Not for anyone else but for your own happiness. Don't compromise. You deserve everything! Be happy and make it happen!
- 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?
