When it comes to exercising, everyone wants to do it, but always finds a reason to postpone it. We always make promises to ourselves that we’re going to start exercising from tomorrow on, but when tomorrow comes, we repeat the same thing to ourselves. Tomorrow never comes. It’s mostly because we are lazy. We would rather watch something on tv or sleep rather than sweat and move our bodies. Exercising looks extreme to someone who knows nothing about it. We have tried signing up for classes, but nothing has worked. So, we sit in front of our TVs, eating pizza and hating ourselves. What other things can we do to make us exercise?
A Proper Sleep
We can try getting a good night’s sleep. You might be wondering how a good sleep can make you start exercising. It’s very simple. Getting a proper sleep will ensure that we wake up with a smile on our faces, energized and ready to face the day properly. In that mindset, it will be easier for you to convince your brain that it’s a good time to exercise. When you’re feeling happy and positive, you’re eager to keep that going. You can be active without a problem.
Start with getting a new memory foam mattress. Get new bedsheets and pillows too. New things will only convince your brain that you’re trying to sleep better. If you’re worried that the comfort of new things might make you reluctant to leave the bed, do not worry. When you wake up feeling energized, you will find it hard to stay in the same spot.
A Few Minutes of Meditating
Another way to convince yourself to exercise is to meditate. You can meditate anytime you want but starting the day with it might be much better. You can go exercising after that. Wake up, wash your face, brush your teeth and sit somewhere comfortable, like on your gel top mattress. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing. You might find it hard at first to keep your concentration, but you will able to get a handle of it much better when you keep doing it. You will feel free and calm after meditating. This will make it easier for you to start exercising.
Rewarding yourself is one of the most effective ways to start exercising. When you start exercising, people thing you would have to give up eating delicious food. That is entirely untrue. Forget that. Give yourself a reward every time you go exercising. It could be anything that makes you happy. It could be a muffin. It could be watching an episode form your favorite TV show. Convince your brain that you will only get this if you exercise. Once you start doing it, your brain will see that you get a reward at the end and it will be much easier to start exercising.
