Making Exercise and Fitness Routine A Habit
Exercise is not just about you being obliged to perform fitness routines on a regular basis. It’s more of making it into a habit and do your best to stick with it. After all, majority of us actually tried it more than once. The question left is how can it be part of your daily life?
Start good and make gradual progress
Priorities may vary, you may opt to do the routines just for enjoyment, another may want to do it for the appearance, while some do it for weight management. You may not have the same goal as another person but what matters is you have something set and you are willing to reach it.
The trick is to find activities that you like to do and can do. For example, running, weight lifting, cycling, playing basketball, tennis, or even walking. It all depends on your preference. Unlike going to the gym where you have to do an activity that you might not want to. Here, routines are of your choice. Just make sure that what you’re doing doesn’t only focus on a particular part of the body. For example, when you exercise your upper body, you also have to exercise your lower body.
Set exercise as one of your priorities and monitor your progress
It may be difficult at first but if you are able to do it then it could definitely have a great impact on you achieving your goal. For example, instead of you telling yourself that you would run for 30 minutes today, your body, and even the members of the household would even remind you about your schedule. There would be no questions asked as to why you do it or not because it is what you do and it’s part of your identity. For better results, you may opt to monitor your progress by listing down your pre-exercise status followed by at least weekly results.
Eat healthy meals and reward yourself for your hard work
It is also important to maintain a healthy meal plan while you conduct your exercise routine. It helps better achieve your desired results. In addition, don’t forget to get something for yourself from your hard work. Yes, you’ve earned it. Reward yourself with things you want, get a new running shoes, travel with your family or buddies, eat delicious meals, or simply rest and relax your mind and body.
