Sometimes we plan things in our head thinking we will follow through with what we promised, but in the end we either forget or push it to the side. With living a healthy lifestyle you don’t want to do this to yourself. Make it a priority to organize your physical activities and exercise routines.
- Find out where exercise fits into your schedule. Write down the open times you have in your schedule for exercise, and decide what works best for you. If your schedule is busy, is there an opening in the morning for exercise before your day begins? What about the evening? Do you have ten minutes here and there during your day?
- Get your day started with a workout. 5am-6am-7am isn’t as bad as
it sounds. You’d be surprised with the amount of energy you have
that day if you begin it with exercising.
- If the mornings aren’t your thing, end your day with a great work
out. It will help relieve any stress that has built up during the day.
- Your downtime in the evening can be time for your physical activity.
Take at least 30 minutes out of this time to workout and you will be
glad you did it.
- If you have an extremely busy schedule, look to see if there are
scattered times throughout the day to have 10-minute bouts of
exercise- don’t miss that chance. Write it down in your timetable to
remind yourself that you have to get some physical activity in.
- Write down what types of workouts you will be doing in the week. For example, Monday, Wednesday, Friday may be your cardio days, and Tuesday and Thursday may be your resistance training days.
- Write down what exercises you will be doing. Are you running for 30 minutes? Are you doing a superset of exercises? Write down some specifics to help you follow a routine.
- Don’t back out of what have been written on paper. When writing things down, think of it as signing a contract with yourself. You can’t break a contract that has been signed, and you shouldn’t cheat yourself out of a workout. Use this as a tool for motivation.
