Having a good sleep routine and cultivating positive thoughts are some of the recommendations for success
Among the promises for the New Year, the goals related to the body generally repeat themselves: to take better care of health, to practice more physical activities and to get in shape. To start keeping up with your body, it is essential to have willpower, be persistent and carry out planning with discipline.
Check out tips to start the year at the right pace:
Saying you don’t have time to exercise is an excuse. Set priorities: mark the training time on the agenda as if it were a work appointment.
In the first few weeks, you need to force yourself to stick to a pre-established program.
3. Keep the new behavior
Follow the same routine and train at the same time of day – make changes to your schedule only after three months, otherwise the risk of abandoning the routine is greatly increased. Once the habit is established, you can have a little more flexibility in your schedule.
4. Enjoy your night’s sleep
Sleep earlier and enjoy your night’s sleep more. Consequently you will be able to wake up earlier, eat better and gradually start adding a physical exercise routine whether in the morning, at lunchtime or at night.
5. Organize your time
Set aside at least 30 minutes of your day, which should be dedicated to improving your fitness.
Including physical activity on the agenda depends on good planning. Check in advance the time of day that you know is usually available.
7. Motivate yourself to create a habit
When you feel that laziness and lack of motivation, go to the gym even if it is to talk, exchange ideas and see friends. The important thing is that the training schedule becomes a habit.
8. Enjoy your favorite soundtrack
Music is a fantastic motivator and has a positive effect on the brain: it makes your emotions respond favorably to exercise.
9. Think positive
Be prepared for possible barriers and difficulties: Always have support in case you fail. Something unexpected can happen that changes plans and diverts us from our goals. Being aware of this will allow you to accept these disorders as part of the path and make life flow in the right direction.
