Working out is one of those things you promise yourself you’ll do each and every day. However, at the end of the day when you realize that you haven’t exactly done it as yet, you decide you’ll make the promise to start working out tomorrow. The cycle is a vicious one. It’s also one we have to break. Working out is just as vital to our health as brushing our teeth and getting regular checkups with the doctor. Here are three simple ways to motivate yourself to start working out each day.
Do it Early
When you make your exercise routine your first stop of the day, you make it easier to actually get it done. The motivation of working out first thing is a good one, because then you’re finished for the day. You no longer have to worry about working out for the rest of the day. And, as an added bonus, you’ll feel amazing after getting this checked off your to-do list.
Really, if you invest in some killer work out gear, working out will be more fun. Nothing is more motivating that a fabulous new outfit on any occasion, and that includes working out. Pick out something you’re dying to wear so you’ll wake up in the morning excited to put it on and get to work – or working out.
Create a Goal
When you have something to work toward, you have more motivation to work out every day. Sign up for a 5k or a color run or buy a dress a size too small to wear to a wedding next month. That kind of goal making and motivation can help you do what needs doing, and fast. Your goal will inspire you to get to working out each day. Otherwise you’ll struggle in your fitness event or have nothing to wear to that wedding.
