If not motivated enough, we all know how tiring exercise can be and how one can be easily discouraged. First, you have all the will to get on with fitness and have all the character to do so. You easily get the idea and decision to invest on workout equipment, get the famous diets going on and easily look for a “gym near me” with your whole schedule planned out in front of you. But, as easily as you decide on all these, a lot of other things you attend to in life gets on your schedule and motivation, making you skip or give up some of your workouts and regimen, making it emptier and emptier by the week. Eventually, you might see yourself skipping exercise once and for all, for all the other things you label as much important to do.
To go away from all that happening, you have to create meaning. Positive motivation and a positive mindset is always the main key. Never think that you will look less than who you are just because of lack of exercise, and never ever go to fitness just to look good for someone else; you are doing this for yourself, and nothing deserves that more than you do. And of course, nothing can motivate you like doing the exercise you like the most.
Exercise doesn’t stop with a workout on the gym that requires you to lift weights and run on the treadmill. You can always go for the more fun ones like Zumba, Barre class, Hiking, Cycling and change it up as you please.
The art of fitness is actually you loving yourself enough to motivate yourself and make sure to keep on going whatever happens. It’s finding the right things and forms of exercise for you, and reminding yourself that doing all this will result into a better and stronger you, with all the love for yourself, that no one else can really give.
