Exercise has many benefits including stress relief, decreased fat storage, and improved mood. But let’s face it, if you aren’t already in an exercise routine it can be down-right hard to start one. The reality is that a good workout isn’t easy and that can deter you from sticking with it!
Here are 4 things you NEED to start an exercise routine.
#1 An Awesome Playlist
Believe it or not, music has a ton of benefits when working out. It can keep you motivated, improve your performance, provide a fun distraction and much more.
#2 A Positive Mindset
Ever heard the saying “fake it until you make it?” For some that may be the approach for #2, and that is okay! Having a positive mindset including positive self-talk is known to increase a person’s willingness to exercise.
#3 An Accountability Buddy
Find that person that knows your WHY for wanting to exercise and is willing to put some pressure on you when you just don’t want to do it. Remember, you have to be willing to do the same for them!
#4 A Set Schedule
If you don’t make the time to exercise then it most likely won’t happen. Sit down and take a good look at your schedule then decide the optimal time to get in a good sweat.
