2. Trying new things – Repeating the same workout everyday can get boring after sometime. Dont get me wrong, continuity is important, but so is giving your body different kind challenges after some time. I would suggest that you introduce small changes to your exercise routine.
3. Planning – Fabulous teaches us to prepare and plan our activities beforehand. So in the evening you can prepare your playlist, prepare that list of exercises.
4. Environment – Maybe try following some people on instagram who motivate you to exercise. May some celebrity or a local fitness enthusiast. And if possible connect with them. Set your phone, computer wallpaper accordingly. The goal is to put yourself in an environment where you consistently get the message about what you want to be.
I hope this helps🙂🙂
Remember to: never start big. If you start off by like lifting a car 7 times each day then you’ll give up VERY quickly
Note: please try avoiding hard exercises after you ate a good big meal. It can harm you
and i tell myself: i am not allowed to get out of bed unless i have done the exercise
(while i can spend my whole day in bed, i need to leave my bed to get dressed or to go to the kitchen to make food or heck, to go to the toilet)
one day i might ignore it, but i know that i will beat myself up if i don't work out, so to save me from the guilt i do the workout.
If it's your first time starting an exercise routine, make it fun! Try to find a type of exercise that fits your personality- solitary walks or runs if you're introverted, maybe dance classes or group exercise (or a routine with a friend) if it's helpful to have other people to have fun with or feel accountable towards. The important thing is to focus on the process and routine of it, and have something that feels good to you.
If you're having trouble completing your established routine today, set a time limit. Let yourself take extra time getting ready, and then say 'i will commit to this for 5 minutes'. Even if you decide to stop when the 5 minutes is up, that's 5 minutes more than you would have done otherwise. For days when a harder routine is too much physically or mentally, I highly recommend Yoga With Adrien's stress relief videos, which have easy movement and are excellent for practicing mindfulness and self-compassion.
Finally, understand that while exercise is good, it's important to have balance and look out for your mental health as well. Listen to your body, listen to your mind, and know that there's no shame in scaling back intensity or taking days to rest when you need it.
