Some people are having a hard time finding the perfect workout for them to do every day. It is a kind of exercise where they can feel fun and enjoyment rather than being exhausted.
For most people, waking up every day to do some exercises might be tiresome or feel like a burden. However, allowing yourself to experience joy during a workout would a lot easier for you to keep everything healthy – not only your physical aspect but also mentally and emotionally.
Here are ways to love what you are doing:
1. Start With What You Wear
Before exercising, people tend to look at their reflection in the mirror or even take photos and post on social media. Are you aware that wearing clothes that you feel comfortable with can encourage you to do exercises?
If you are putting on your favorite workout attire, you can feel motivated, strong, and empowered, and by that, you will enjoy working out so much. Being comfortable with what you wear makes you more determined to do the process.
2. Find Yourself A Workout Buddy
Exercising would be fun if you have someone to accompany you. Having someone who shares the same goal will not only motivate you, but also uplifts your spirit to achieve your goals more efficiently. Working out with a group or even just one person doesn’t only allow you to focus on exercising but also your social time. If it stresses you to work alone, what are you waiting for? Find friends that will push you to reach your goals!
3. Have A Variety
The gym is not only the best place for you to exercise. Don’t do the same workout all the time because you will be bored in following it. You can join a class where it also allows you to interact with other people. Try to fasten a workout session such as yoga, aqua aerobics, dancing, kickboxing, or Zumba to provide something new in your interest. Besides, it serves as an alternative way to enjoy and have fun.
4. Give Yourself A Reward
Paying back all your hard work will motivate you to do better next time. Ass yourself what would be the best reward for you. Put something on your savings and buy something for yourself. You can buy clothes that you will use for the next day or even pick up food to treat yourself.
5. Play Your Favorite Music
Use upbeat songs to be energized. Sometimes when I exercise, I usually load up the music box with BLACKPINK music because it heats me. Instead of working out in silence, you can download all your favorite songs so that the exercise will not be dull.
6. Take A Rest
Most people don’t want to take a break because their mind is killing them. It always says that once you take a break, all your works will be considered useless. Always remember that you don’t need to pressure yourself. The results will not shock you for 3-5 days; take things easy. Feel yourself. If your body needs to rest, you should not be stubborn and take a rest. If your body is telling you to sit and watch your favorite movie, definitely it’s OK. Grant your body what it desires.
7. Take Everything Slow
Exercising doesn’t only mean that you need to work 30 minutes a day. Go to the gym and have that cardio workout every single day. Listening to your body might help you to lessen the tension between your mind and body. Try avoiding stress during the workout process. It became a misconception among people because they believe that exercise should be of high-intensity level; however, yoga session, walk, gentle jog might be what your body needs in a day. It simply means ten to fifteen minutes of exercise. Take everything slowly, and the result will shock you soon.
8. Do Not Eat Unhealthy Foods
You might be wondering why I listed this as the last way but mind you that this one is a significant factor why it feels so difficult for you to start your exercise. Eating unhealthy foods like processed, and sugary products can make you feel tired, lazy and even unmotivated. So, make sure that if you are exercising, balanced diet should be followed. Doing this might be an assurance to reach your goals healthily.
Start Doing it Now!
Since most of you are having a hard time on how to start exercising, the eight ways above is not an excuse. Start within yourself. Do not always dwell on the result of your physical appearance because as long as you are healthy – body, mind, and soul, and you’ve enjoyed doing these things, you be a better version of yourself.
