What do you tell yourself when you don’t feel like exercising?

You may have been hoping for some inspirational speech or something, but here is what you should do.
JUST TELL YOURSELF TO SUCK IT UP.

Do it anyway . Whenever I decide not to do a habit, I end up never doing it again. You tell yourself that you don’t need to, just this one day, but it then you stop, and tell yourself that you don’t need to do it again and again(trust me this has happened to me many times). I’m sure you’ve heard this before we before, but start small. If you start bigger, or have worked up to bigger, and don’t feel like doing a hardcore workout today, maybe take it down a notch. Don’t start too big, even if you’ve worked up to it, then crash to nothing. Personally, I do yoga every morning. It wakes up and stretches my muscles and, and is still a form of exercise.

Hope this helps!

I push through. You may not want to do it in the moment, but once you push through and complete your workout it is so rewarding knowing that you were determined enough to do it even if you don’t want to.

When I don’t feel like exercising I tell myself “You know you’ll regret it in the morning” and if that doesn’t work I will look at photos of myself and think “You can do it, just 10 minutes, that’s all” and I’ll reward myself afterwards.

I remember what I feel like after the exercise. Not just after because then I am exhausted but a little bit later. Exercises make my day better, I'm in a better mood and I'm more awake even if I didn't sleep enough.

I tell myself that I’m going to achieve a target by doing it and I sometimes change my workout routine to something fun like a short run or dancing. I also put on my workout clothes and music and try not to think too much into it.

My excercise everyday is going to work with my e-bike. The commute is 60 km each day ^^ that's my daily workout. And if I don't have to work, I plan a small walk or run 🙂 and if I really don't want to, I don't do it 🙂

I really struggle with this one too. What I am going to start saying in my head is this is actually caring for myself, that this is a gift to be able to move and I should enjoy it!

I remind myself how much better I'll feel afterwards. Even if I feel terrible now, just starting exercise makes a huge difference.

I tell myself that it’s okay to give myself a day off. Or I make excuses such as “I worked hard today, I deserve to rest” using excuses to justify my lack
Of excessive helps me feel better about slacking. However, by changing my habits such as sleeping better and working more productively, I may save some energy throughout the day to ensure I can excessive without any excuses.
