It’s important to take better care of ourselves so that we wake up every day renewed and ready to rock the hell out of being a wonder woman. Physical activity can help you reduce your risk of chronic disease; improve your balance and coordination. It also helps you lose weight and even improve your sleep habits and self-esteem.
However, to build up a plan you need to have a goal to align your projections. Don’t set unrealistic goals as it will indirectly affect your motivation.
Below are some tips to help you build your workout routine;
Figure out your why
Ask yourself why you want to lose weight or simply keep fit, and then keep asking until you get a deep and emotional answer. Finding out your why is very important because people who don’t stand for something, can easily fall for anything. Decide how you want to measure your life and make a stand for something in alignment with it.
Set a goal
Setting fitness goals and continuing to create new challenges for yourself will give you something to strive for. Your goals should encourage you to work hard, but they also need to be targets you can reach. Break your goals down into short- and long-term objectives.
Start low and progress slowly
If you’re just beginning to exercise, start cautiously and progress slowly. If you have an injury or a medical condition, consult your doctor or an exercise therapist for help designing a fitness program that gradually improves your range of motion, strength and endurance.
Put your exercise routine in writing
When organizing your calendar for the week or month, schedule in your exercise routine along with your other appointments. Write down every workout session just as you would a doctor’s visit or a business meeting, and schedule other social activities around it.
Note that a successful business plan requires commitment and that means sticking to a set routine.
Build activity into your daily routine
Finding time to exercise can be a challenge. To make it easier, schedule time to exercise as you would any other appointment. Plan to watch your favorite show while walking on the treadmill, read while riding a stationary bike, or take a break to go on a walk at work.
Start making those changes now. Don’t wait for next January or even next Monday. Start right now. Don’t give yourself time to build up the excuses. Grab a notebook and starts plotting your new lifestyle then take action
