How to Make Sure You Stick to Your Exercise Routine

If you’re facing problems beginning an exercise routine plan or following through, you are not alone at all. Many people struggle getting out of the sedentary rut for regular exercise, despite our best intentions and motivation.

We already know there are many important reasons to do exercise daily—from improving energy, to better sleep, mood,  and health to reducing anxiety, stress, and depression. And detailed exercise instructions and workout plans are just a click away. But if you know how and why exercise is enough, we will all be fit. Make habitual exercises need more – you need the correct mindset and intelligent approach.

While practical concerns such as busy schedules or poor health can make sports more challenging, for most of us, the biggest obstacle is mental. Maybe it’s a lack of confidence that makes you not take a positive step, or your motivation to quickly turn on, or you are easily discouraged and give up. We are all there at a time.

Schedule your practice in advance

Schedule all your exercises at the beginning of the month, and keep track when you finish it. Try the approach of Jerry Seinfeld (now famous) for productivity. It’s beautifully simple: post a monthly calendar on your wall and every day you finish the exercise you entered the big red “x” through it. Soon you will build a bunch that provides enough momentum to take you through too many human desires to turn off today’s training until tomorrow.

Exercise in the morning and get out of the way

Some people find it easier to stick to their training plans if they do it in the morning, take them out of the road before the reasons appear to pass it. At the end of the day, you are often really tired, random things have appeared, and there are always other things to do instead of exercising.

Avoid Burnout: Increase the intensity gradually

Too hard, too hard can make you fail. Research has shown that the most dedicated exercise does not directly plan a training plan with high intensity, instead it takes several weeks to work until the intensity of the full exercise. If you don’t exercise at all, 30 minutes a day of intense activity five days a week might be scary. Start with shorter and less active activities and gradually increase over time until your training routine becomes a habit. Many people are too ambitious at first and burn from fatigue.

Don’t think you don’t benefit by starting with low intensity exercises, either. Studies show that even only running quickly 15 to 20 minutes per day can significantly reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke or develop diabetes.

Track your practice

Put the pen to paper and save the written note about what you have achieved. Some studies have shown that the most successful training program records their daily activities in journals, tracking the number of sets and reps that they do or the miles they run. Being able to see your progress highly motivates and makes you fight for improvement.

Find exercises that you enjoy and look forward to

Just because all your friends like to spin or crossfit doesn’t mean you do it too. Finding exercises that you really like will make you more likely to stick with time to time.

Start by really thinking about the things you enjoyed – nature, group settings, sports playing, quiet time, or challenged. Then look for activities that meet your or more criteria. Do you like competition? Then exercise with a friend who challenges you or takes a group of fitness groups may be useful. Do you like to immediately see the results of your business? Then practice related to the application that tracks your progress, such as strava to run and cycling, may be highly motivating.

Set some goals. 

Shared overnight so as not to settle into a buff exercise not on the card for most people. What’s more, unrealistic expectations will get you frustrated and failure. A better approach is to set long-term goals, such as running for 30 minutes five days a week, and breaks it into a monthly target. During the first month, focus on running three days a week for at least 10 minutes or longer every time. During the second month, walk on additional days per week (so you have to walk four days a week). Add another day in the third month. Then, every two weeks, extends each session running five minutes until you reach your destination.

Don’t become your own drill sergeant.

Half of all who started the new training program distanced him away in the first year. It often happens because they cannot follow the Boot-Camp steps they force themselves. It’s better to work within your limits, and gradually become stronger.

Bring friends.

When your inner devil instructs you to hit the sofa instead of a treadmill, the exercise partner can direct you back in the right direction. It’s easier to save on the gym than to have friends waiting for you there. Studies show you will also work longer when you have friends together.

 Chart your progress.

After you set your goals, start measuring your performance. Record minutes you walk every day as a daily planner, or create a simple graph that you can post in the refrigerator. Either way, save the written note of what you have achieved. You can create similar charts for your training, stretch, and balance program.

Prize yourself.

Meeting your training goals, even the short term, is the reason for the celebration. This reflects your commitment to improve your health. Find a way to pat yourself. Is your gift small or large, make sure it’s something meaningful and fun. Avoid gifts, you can regret immediately after, such as eating ice cream if your final goal loses weight. A better choice may be a new CD to listen to when you walk.
