There are many places that you can look for motivation, you just need to try!
When you are looking for motivation to exercise, it is often easy to lose hope.
There are many road blocks that can get in your way. Here are 6 tips guaranteed to give you the motivation that you need to groove and get fit everyday!
- Write It Down!
Make a note of your weekly fitness activities in your daily planner. When it is part of your schedule, you are more likely to do it.
- Find A Friend
Working out with a partner (or group) is a great way to stay pumped about exercise. When you know that someone else is relying on you to workout with, you are going to do it as you don't want to let them down. There is also great energy and positivity when you are with friends.
- Visualize the Outcome
On those days that you feel too tired or stressed to exercise, remember how great you felt after you last exercise session and how wonderful it would be to have the feeling again (especially when you are tired and stressed).
- Set Goals
If you do not have a fitness goal, you may find that there is no desire to even to move! Even if you goals are small, once you know what they are, you will be motivated to achieve them!
- Reward Yourself
Tell yourself whenever you reach a goal (no matter how big or small) you will reward yourself (a long bath, shopping spree) - You will feel great and ready to tackle you next challenge.
- Pay It Forward
Encourage someone else become active, maybe even mentor them. You will feel great and be very inspired to keep it up.
