Five Fitness Habits to Make You Unstoppable
#1 Set a daily fitness goal and commit to it!
This can be as small or as big as you want it to be. You may set a big target to exercise for 1 hour a day, or set a smaller target to get off the bus one stop earlier to get your steps in. Which ever it is, set your goal and commit to it! As you start to achieve your goals you can reevaluate and set new ones! The point is that you are thinking of way to incorporate fitness into your daily routine and by committing to it, you are creating a healthy fitness habit.
#2 Set a weekly fitness plan
This can be a new workout plan that you schedule through the week and specifically days and times that have been designated to execute your plan. Once you have your plan in place, it is much harder to break it. Hold yourself accountable and go for it! You can also include a nutrition plan alongside your workout plan.
#3 Get excited by a new exercise or fitness plan
If you are feeling bored and tired of the same plan, try something new! Trying something new every so often is exciting and can be a great way to reinvent your training or just get your body moving in a different way. Get out of your comfort zone and see how this can benefit you.
#4 Take time for self care
Look after yourself so you can remain at optimum fitness. This includes a good warm up before your workout and a cool down afterwards. These are great for getting your muscles ready for a good workout and will also prevent injuries from occurring. Other things you can consider are meditation, massage and taking a hot bath. Look after yourself!
#5 Reward yourself!
You have stuck to your goals, you have implemented new fitness habits into your daily routine and you’re making good progress, then celebrate! So go ahead and reward yourself. You have earned it.
