Motivation Boosters

MOtivboos

We’ve all been at that point when we just want to skip our workouts. The reasons are many sometimes that sheer exhaustion, stress, too busy, zero motivation or just flat-out don’t want to. The fact of the matter is if we only worked out when we felt like it, totally awake, stress free and had plenty of time we’d probably rarely workout because life is busy and can be stressful.

Here are a few ways to help you get motivated and continue to work towards your goals on those days when you don’t want to get up, feel stressed out and busy.

Pump up the Jam:

It may sound simple and maybe a little dumb but making a killer playlist can really give you a motivation boost! I cannot they you have many times I’m ready for a workout and start my music app and then is bad song workout song I left feeling unmotivated, contrast that to times I used my own playlist and I have been at the end of my stamina on a run then an awesome song comes on and I suddenly have an energy boost and can keep going! 

Look the part:

Wearing your favorite workout clothes can work wonders in motivating you to get up and do it. For me personally this is a big motivator. Recently its been hot and I have been wearing shorts and a tank top for every single workout, about a week ago I was feel BLAH and didn’t really want to workout at all. While I was putting away laundry I came across a pair of my favorite capris…they are hot pink, light pink, purple and white chevron…super cute. I decided to put them on. I really feel like that got me out of my blah funk!

Plan it:

Nothing can stop motivation in its tracks more that getting your self all ready {whether it for a home gym workout or a gym workout} and realize you have no idea what you are doing…weights, zumba….ugh. One of the simplest ways I have found to thwart this motivation buster is by planning ahead. Whether you are using a printed out calendar, a dry erase board or your phone, by simply writing down what you want to do and how long you want to do it will really help keep you motivated and excited!

Phone a Friend:

We all get in blah funks like I was a while ago. That’s ok, we are human. Unfortunately for many that funk can turn into giving up…we don’t want that! I don’t want that! Simply calling up you bestie or sister or mom or husband…ect. can rejuvenate you! Feeling like you don’t want to do anything? Ask you sister if she want to go for a walk tonight and just talk! You’ll be surprised how much stress is lifted and how much physically better you feel!

Reevaluate:

Finally, sometimes we find ourselves feeling unmotivated because we have so many different workouts. Maybe you are doing Zumba, PiYo, weights, and….so on all in one day. Just like anything thing else you can easily get burned out by doing too much. Contrast that to only doing a small walk, then the next day weights for 20 minutes…Doing too little can take your motivation away very quickly. In my experience working out very lightly can be discouraging because you don’t see results. Reevaluation goes hand in hand with “Plan it” above.
