Getting Motivated in 2017!

We all make that new year’s resolution of losing weight, eating healthier or get fit, but do any of us actually see it through? Each year I make this resolution and it never lasts for the whole year, but last year it did last for about 6 months then it just kind of fizzled out. I then looked back on what I did in those 6 months that did improve my lifestyle and keep me motivated and decided to share them with you.

 

Sleep!

Sleep is my top priority when I try to improve my lifestyle.If you are going to want motivation to get up and do a workout or go to the gym, you are going to need the energy to do so! The average person should get 7-8 hours of sleep a night, to some people this may sound like too much or too little. But, having this amount of sleep a night will energise your body to and get you ready for your day. So before your getting ready for bed, calculate what time you need to go to sleep and then you will wake up nice and fresh when that alarm goes off!

Work your way up!

If you start the new year joining the gym and doing 2 hour session 5 times a week, it is not going to last! If you really want to change your lifestyle and get healthy, it’s going to take you time. Start off by doing 30 minutes of exercise 2-3 times a week, this might not even be joining a gym but maybe just going for a walk. It may not be your fitness your trying to improve but your health, the worst thing you can do is suddenly change your whole diet as this will make you bored and you will not last. Instead, just change your breakfast and try a range of different things to find what you prefer then slowly change your lunch, then dinner or even just your snacks. This will make a huge difference in the long run!

Plan!

There is nothing worse then going to the gym and not knowing what you are going to do. Even if you plan out something as simple as what body part you are going to be targeting. I admit that I often walk into a gym and waste 10-15 minutes deciding what I want to do. Now, I plan what body part I am targeting and a range of exercises I can complete which will have an effect. Also, planning what you are going to be doing will give you more motivation to get on with it, whereas if you have nothing planned you will easily talk yourself out of the workout!

Get into routine!

At first it is very difficult to get yourself into a routine to work out. It has been said, if you do something regular for 6 weeks it will fall into routine. I prefer to work out in a morning, so all I do is set my alarm that little bit earlier and do my workout. I don’t always go to the gym but usually complete it at home, this way I can just have a shower afterwards and get ready for work. I also find that this gets me set and ready for the day ahead and I always feel better at the end of it!

How are you going to motivate yourself in 2017?

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to generate a good article… but what can I say…
    I put things off a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
