Put exercise at the top of your to-do list, and don’t get distracted. Although you may have the best intentions, your workout can easily be derailed by responsibilities and distractions. Then you fall into a pattern of swearing you’ll fit in a workout tomorrow or the next day, and we all know that can turn into … well, never. This is why you need to plan exercise just like you would any other vital obligation.
Think of your workout as a non-negotiable appointment. You aren’t able to stay at home and answer emails or fold clothes because you’re busy. Add gym class times to your phone calendar just like you would other appointments. If you aim to exercise around the same time every day, you’re less likely to skip your workout and the sooner it gets done. Why? Researchers say this approach creates an instigation habit that tends to lead to better consistency.
If you want some encouragement and help with creating those habits, join us for the Whole Life Challenge!
