STAY POSITIVE, WORKOUT HARD, MAKE IT HAPPEN !
Many reasons throw up when you are about to start working out like I’m stressed out ! I am very tired ! It’s too cold and raining out ! Such reasons pop up externally that pushes us away from your fitness routine. We have naturally created a sense of laziness that has got us to nothing but to a much worse situation.
Lack of motivation is one of the key factors for regular exercises. Shifting your internal bone-loafer to an active goer needs a little self impulse and an outer inspiration to even just get started.
Here are 5 easy tips to keep you motivated and get going…
Enhance workout with music
Music with a fast beat subconsciously travels through your brain down to your fingers which allows them to tap to the rhythm. The rhythm of the music resonates your body movements. Pay attention next time, when you’re listening to music at your desk. Notice how your body moves without any thought.
Music has the power to move us, distracting us from feelings of fatigue and improving our mood when the right music is out in the air. The effects of this is greater when you are jogging, walking, running and weightlifting. Incorporate music into your workout by adding a music from your smartphone.
Find a challenge to join
There is nothing motivating than the first few successful targeted workouts seeing accomplished setting goals can actually help you stay motivated and added to this, being a part of challenge can push you towards your workout goal.
There are so many options out there that offers challenges from specific workouts to a whole body workout.
It can also be helpful to write down your goals and motivational quotes where you can see them everyday.
Food as fuel
Exercise and eating go hand in hand. When and what you eat can be important to how you feel when you exercise, whether it is a casual workout or training for a competition.
By eating a healthy, well-considered meal 1-2 hours before exercise, and another healthy meal within 1-2 hours after exercise, most people can meet their workout nutrition needs without anything else.
Always focus on:
- eating more minimally proteins, veggies, quality carbs and healthy fats;
- ensuring your portions are the right size, and in the right amounts, for you; and
- eating slowly, until satisfied.
- drinking lots of water at frequent intervals.
Nutrient timing actually gives you a framework for making good food decisions and controlling total intake. Of course, if that’s you, rock on with the nutrient timing. Nutrient timing won’t suddenly transform your physique or performance. Fundamental nutrition habits consistently increases your ability to workout.
If you’re a recreational exerciser who just wants to look and feel better, nutrient timing might help, but might also be a lot of work for minimal return.
Grab a workout partner
If you are working out alone and you ever have a hard time pushing yourself to do it, you might find motivation from having a friend to help keep you on track. The two of you can plan to work out together, or you can just talk at the end of each day and discuss whether you both met your goals. Talking to a friend can be really helpful for identifying the hurdles that keep you from working out.
One of the best things that we suggest for a healthy living is to exercise daily and have a hearty talk with your loved ones. So you can club these two and have a great time while you workout. Group fitness class can be a great way to find a group of supportive people who will motivate you to work out.
Every time you achieve a goal that you have set, go ahead and pamper yourself. That is the best reward and you will love every bit of it. Make sure to treat yourself with a trip or some goods that you wanted to buy. In case you want to treat your taste buds, go light on calories. Don’t deprive yourself of anything.
