3 Ways To Stay Motivated To Exercise

I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions are 100% mine. After the holidays are behind us, sometimes we can literally see the extent of how the holidays impacted us! When we step on the scales, more often than not, we have out on a few extra pounds. Once we see this, it is a natural progression to make a resolution to get healthy and fit in the new year. We vow to exercise and lose weight and we do pretty well for the first few weeks. After the newness and excitement wear off, it is more difficult to stay motivated. If that sounds like you, maybe these tips will help get you back on track!

3 Tips To Help You Stay Motivated To Exercise

3 Tips To Help You Stay Motivated To Exercise

  1. Track Your Activity and Progress: If you have an activity device like a Fitbit, Misfit, Pebble or Jawbone, you have a great tool and you should use it! You can track your calories, your activity, your sleep patterns and a lot of other pertinent information. When you know where you are, it is easier to see where you are going and where you have been.
  2. Set Goals: There is no big motivator than a goal you want to reach. Choose something you can obtain but is not too easy to accomplish. Maybe you can make it a goal to walk an upcoming 5K or run a full mile without stopping.
  3. Add Music: Not only is music a great motivator, it is also a way to add some fun to your exercise routine. There is nothing like talking a brisk walk while you listen to your favorite dance music or a mix of current hits. Be sure to switch up your playlist or it will get as boring as sticking with the same routine day in and day out!
