Here are five ways to stay motivated and keep yourself moving! –
▪️Set a fitness goal.
If you have a clear idea of what you’re working towards and what you want to accomplish it’s a big step in keeping you motivated. Keep focused on your target and keep working for it! –
▪️Track your progress.
Keep a record of your workouts, your progress and results. On the days you feel like you’re not making any progress you can look back and see how far you’ve come. Knowing that all the work you’ve put in so far is paying off should be enough to keep you moving forward. –
▪️Work out in a class or a group.
One of the benefits of working out in a group is that the others know when your slacking. Staying accountable to each other and even adding in a little bit of competition will give you the extra support and motivation needed on the days you just can’t be bothered moving off of the couch. –
Check your progress and revisit your goals regularly. By training in a group or hiring a trainer will give you the extra accountability. having others push you on that extra bit will help to keep the motivation level up. –
▪️ Make it fun!
Enjoy what you do. If you don’t like something eventually you will stop doing it. Find an activity you like to stay active. Mix up your workouts now and again. Set mini-challenges to keep things more interesting. Compete with yourself to get one more rep than last time, run a distance a little faster than last week, or lift a little heavier. –
Motivation won’t always be there. Make exercise part of your daily routine and it will become a habit.
