Exercise: How to Stay Motivated
Some ways to combat motivation deficit:
l Change your exercise routine every four to six weeks
l Write down your goals and review them daily
l paste a picture of yourself at your ideal on the refrigerator door
l Schedule exercise as you would a business meeting
l If you can’t get in your full exercise time, break it up into 10-minute increments
l Wear a pedometer. Challenge yourself to get in a certain amount of steps per day (experts say 10,000 per day is the average of fit people)
l Find an accountability buddy or group. On the days your motivation lags, your friend(s) can be your cheering section. When they’re feeling lazy, you can talk them into working out.
If it was not for certain people in my life, I would not have the excitement I have for exercising. Little did I know what it does for your mind, body and soul.
