It's that time of year again! A time for new beginnings, fresh starts, and setting goals. If one of your goals for the new year is to be mindful of your movement, you will need a solid workout routine. But let's be honest, how many times have you started a workout routine only to give up a few weeks later?
If you're tired of starting and stopping your workout routine, let's change that this year. With these simple strategies, you'll be well on your way to a workout routine you'll love (and, therefore, won't want to skip!).
Pick an Exercise You Actually Enjoy
One of the main reasons people give up on their workout routines is that they don't pick exercises they enjoy. If you've ever forced yourself to go on a run when you really don't want to, then you know what I'm talking about. If you want to create a workout routine you'll stick to, choose exercises you enjoy. If you hate running, don't make it a part of your routine. There are plenty of other activities out there that will get your heart rate up.
Put it on Your Schedule.
If you don't plan for exercise, there's a good chance that you'll end up skipping it altogether. Thus, treating your workouts like any other important task or commitment in your life is essential. Whether squeezing them into your daily planner or setting the alarm on your phone, please take steps to ensure that you show up for your workout sessions when they're scheduled. By putting exercise at the center of your day-to-day routine, you'll feel more committed and motivated to stay active and reach your goals.
Focus on The Long Term
When it comes to getting in shape, many of us are motivated by one thing: our weight. We strive to lose those extra pounds to reshape our bodies and feel healthier overall. But while focusing on losing weight can be effective, it can also lead to frustration and burnout when the progress is slow or nonexistent. Instead of focusing solely on your outward appearance, try honing in on your motivation to get into shape in the first place.
Focusing instead on how working out makes you feel will make you more likely to stick with your exercise routine even when the results aren't immediately apparent. With time and consistency, your focus will shift from an external goal, like looking a certain way, to a deeper desire for health and vitality. And that's something that no number on the scale can ever measure.
Find a Workout Partner
Working out can be more fun (and motivating) when you do it with someone else. Find a friend or family member who has similar fitness goals and work out together. Having someone else counting on you will help keep you accountable and motivated when things get tough. And trust me, things will get tough at some point—that's just part of the process. But if you have someone else working out alongside you, it'll be easier to push through those tough times and stay on track with your goals.
Creating a new year's workout routine can be simple and effective. Just follow these simple tips, and you'll be well on your way to reaching your fitness goals in no time.
Doing a life review can be beneficial if you feel stuck or unfulfilled. It's a chance to reflect on your accomplishments, learn from your mistakes, and set realistic goals for the year ahead. You might be surprised at what you discover about yourself—and what's possible for your future.
