Every January people start their New Year resolutions to commit to working out, but it only lasts a few weeks. You don’t have to wait to January to start. If you start now, you will be on track and exercise will be a part of your daily routine by the time the holidays roll around. Here are some great ways to get motivated and stay motivated:
- Schedule your workouts. Whether you are meeting up with a trainer, going for a jog with a friend or simply just going to the gym, having it scheduled will make sure you get it done.
- Slow and steady wins the race. Don’t get burned out too quickly. Reaching a goal will not only make you want to keep going, but it will be rewarding to see how far you have come.
- Don’t compare your results to anyone else. Everyone is on their own fitness journey, and what works for someone else may not work for you, and that’s OK.
- Have fun and don’t get discouraged. There will be days that you miss a session or a workout doesn’t go well. Good thing is, there is always tomorrow’s workout and another opportunity to improve.
