- Exercise in the morning:
An early morning workout offers numerous benefits, for both your overall health and daily routine. The initial rejig of your regular to fit that early morning gym sesh in before work may seem near impossible, but here’s why you need to do it.
You can boost your metabolism first thing in the morning, this may help you burn more calories throughout the day. Once you work out in the morning your body has already started up your metabolism as it burns energy to complete the workout. As a result, when you do get around to replenishing your body (i.e. eating your breakfast) your body has already been geared up to metabolise the foods you are about to eat.
Not only will you receive a physical benefit from a morning workout - but it will also encourage you to put yourself into a positive mindset for the rest of the day. An early morning workout can help you feel like you have already accomplished something for the day - even though it's before 7 or even 8 am!
- Keep a journal of your achievements and successes:
By writing down your daily wins you come more aware of your daily progress. A better understanding of how you are improving can help increase motivation, determination and long-term perseverance. These don't have to be huge achievements. Simply writing them down will remind you that you are capable.
Just remember a little progress each day adds up to big results.
- Don’t wait for others to motivate you:
If you're wanting to make a lifestyle change, you need to rely on yourself and yourself only for motivation. If you become reliant on a fitness buddy to keep you motivated, then if they lose their determination - more likely you will fall too. Perseverance needs to come from inside.
- Have Fun!
It’s a New Year, which means a new start - enjoy it. Try to stay present and be active. Find new hobbies or revisit old ones. It is important to find enjoyment to live your healthiest life!
