Being physically active is something we all know we will benefit from. It is what we need to keep our body healthy and happy. Actually doing it though, not that easy.
Working out is without doubt good for you; you sleep better, get your energy level up, you feel stronger, healthier and more confident. Yet we seem to find the craziest excuses not to work out way too often. The lack of motivation is huge for many of us (myself included from time to time).
Finding an excuse is easy, getting into your workout gear and get started, not so much.
So, how do you make working out a natural part of your everyday life? We share some our best tips to create sustainable health routines.
I know it may be tempting to go all in, but start small. Running to the gym every day when your body isn’t used to the activities will only drain you of your energy and eventually you will fall of the wagon.
Yes, you heard me. Set that alarm clock one hour earlier than you usually do and get it done. In addition to being the best way to wake the body up it has a lot of health benefits. You can read all about them here.
All movement counts
Don´t forget that taking a walk, swimming in the ocean or playing football with your kids counts as exercise. As long as you move, it counts. So don´t be too hard on yourself and don´t worry, there is no need to visit the gym every day.
Accept where you’re at
Changes don´t happen overnight, so don’t expect to become a spinning expert in matter of days. However, your mindset is key, so by just deciding you want to be more active you have done half the work already.
Like we always say and our biggest motto: have fun! There are so many ways to be active so don’t lock yourself in the gym if you don’t like it. Grab a friend and explore the endless opportunities out there and we promise, you will find your thing.
Good luck in finding what feels good. And if you are ever interested in trying new stuff stay tuned for our upcoming events, we always find a way to get active.
