How to Motivate Yourself to Exercise

Ways to motivate yourself to exercise consistently.

Research tells us that exercise gives amazing benefits to both our physical & mental health. The physical benefits of exercise are more energy, helps maintain a healthy weight and makes our skin glow. Exercise produces feel-good chemicals called endorphins & serotonin which help boost your mental health. In addition, exercise is believed to impact your mood, help with your relationships, let you sleep better and even help you focus.

With all this in mind, here are some tips to help you stay motivated to exercise.

Enjoy what you do

It doesn’t mean you have to be the best at all times, it’s more about finding what you love to do, having fun & being active.

Notice your feelings

Pay attention to how you feel after doing a workout or a physical activity. Use this to know more about what you like doing and what motivates you.

Exercise outside

While doing physical activity reduces stress levels, being out in nature can even reduce it more. The best part of doing exercise outdoors is that it’s free!

Exercise with a friend

There will be days when you will not find the energy to do your workouts, and having an exercise buddy is very helpful especially during this time. Help each other stay motivated.

Set goals

Track your progress and see how far you’ve come. This will help you find the inspiration during the days you don’t want to exercise.

We hope this blog helped you to find ways to keep yourself motivated to exercise. Keep moving and stay safe!
