Is staying in shape always something that gets bumped to the bottom of your list? Many people complain that they are very busy and that they don’t have time to exercise. I think that’s not true. The problem is that they don’t like exercising and that is why, it will never be the priority.
Exercising is not really that busy, especially if you don’t like to do it. Well, how can we enjoy exercising? These are 8 ways on how to enjoy exercising:
- Establish your goal
List your goals and figure out a plan that allows you to gradually meet your goal. You can set goals to beat your past records in distance ran, push-ups or chin ups you can do. Try to beat your previous high-score.
- Make it a habit
If you make it as a habit, then it will be much easier for you to do it. Make a schedule for you to exercise everyday. Write down your schedule and stick to it. It is better if it would be at the same time everyday.
Don’t stick with the same routine, it will be very boring as time goes by. Mix it up and try different activities. There are exercise routines you can follow or activities to try. If you will do this, you will be excited to exercise everyday.
- Choose an appropriate music
Music also has an important role in exercising. It makes up the mood. It can enhance a workout. Make your workout playlist and listen to them while you exercise.
- Short Workouts
Just go for twenty to thirty-minute workouts. It will be better that longer ones, especially if you are still starting. Try to have short workouts everyday.
- Make Daily Challenges
Make it as a game. Challenge yourself to do more. Try to beat your last high-score. Sticking with the same type of exercises can get boring, so mix it up by introducing an unusual workout challenge.
- Record Improvements
Recording weight loss or muscle gain is a good idea. You can weigh yourself everyday. You can also take photos of yourself and compare it from the previous records. Keep a record of your strength, endurance and flexibility so you can get pride in your accomplishments.
- Make Time
It’s not true that you don’t have time to exercise. Exercise improves your energy levels and mood which makes you more productive than any time lost. You can get up early or you can have it after work, but it is well to have it earlier.
Once you make time and make it a habit, you’ll actually want to exercise instead of just feeling you should.
