Even those who work out every day don’t always feel inspired to exercise, so finding the desire to exercise requires time and effort. It’s perfectly natural to not feel motivated all of the time, particularly if you’ve been doing it for a long time. If you’ve been working out for a while and are losing motivation, these suggestions will help you stick to your balanced lifestyle.
Rethink your definition of success
Be sure to congratulate yourself on your accomplishments along the way. For example, if you set a goal to exercise three times per week and follow through, that is a success. You were effective in selecting your exercises and locating a location where you could complete them.
Make it a priority to work out
Choose from a variety of exercise choices and decide which one you’ll do on any given day. Making a decision gives you a sense of control, making it feel less like a chore.
Select the Appropriate Workout Level
Find a workout that is hard enough to keep you on your toes, but not so difficult that you get discouraged and give up. Reduce the pace on days when working out seems difficult, but you’re always having some exercise.
Exercise in a Group
When you do your workouts with friends and family, they are more fun and easier to stick to.
