It’s getting colder and the Christmas stress is creeping up on us so I thought i’d share with you my top tips on how you can stay active!
Plan your week and your workouts/activity. Once it’s scheduled in and you’ve been able to work them in around your every day life. Can you record your favourite programme and catch up later? Or even do a workout during Bake Off? Find what works for you, write it down and that way you could be more likely to stick to it.
/ Grab a Mate
This is shown everywhere isn’t it, but research does suggest workout out with a friend makes us more commited but also push ourselves further! One researcher found that those who exercised with a someone who they thought was better than them increased their workout time and intensity by as much as 200% – jeeeez!
/ Head to a Class
Whether it’s just so you don’t have to think about a workout or want to try something new. Working out in a class enables us to switch off motivation, we just need to show up and do it! Wicked… working in a class could help keep us motivated while being around loads of people too!
/ Watch Out of Distractions
Be mindful about what situations could arise that make you stop being active. Family parties or even every day life stresses can cause us to give up all together. Notice possible distractions or trigger points and then learn to rest and take time out where needed rather than quit – To avoid stopping altogether, plan when you’re next able to be active!
Whether it’s your own treadmill to avoid rainy runs that never happen anyway or to help push you really hard in the gym with a PT, investing some money into being active could encourage you to use it – you spent the money on it after all!
