According to recent findings from a poll conducted by Gallup, almost a third of the American population are trying to lose weight.
Are you one of them?
Well, if you are, then you might be able to relate when I say that most of these Americans have a hard time following through to their goals.
You know what the major reason for that is?
It’s just the fact that weight loss programs aren’t all that fun after a certain point of time, and some right from the start.
Plain and simple.
You need to find some motivation and inspiration to help you keep on track and not give up. And that can be absolutely anything under the sun, from a video or a song to another person or group of persons.
What you can also try doing, is to make your regime a little more interesting by focusing on a few simple things.
Here are 3 things you can do to make working out more fun:
- Find your jam – Listening to some of your favorite songs while working out can become one of the best ways to get through your exercise routines without a lot of complaining. It helps to release a rush of endorphins that can reduce the pain from the workout and give you that much needed extra push. All you need to remember while creating your playlist is to make sure you put all the preppy numbers that get you all excited in and leave out the melodies and ballads.
- Appreciate yourself for covering milestones – Appreciation is one of the best sources of original motivation for anything you wanna do, be it work or workout. It doesn’t stimulate your brain artificially to follow your goals, rather it actually pushes your brain to challenge any detours. That’s why we need this reinforcement in our lives on an on-going basis.
You can reward yourself by doing anything you want, but keep away from food or activities that spoil your hard earned milestone.
- Change to fun routines – As rightly mentioned by Selena Gomez and her trainer, workout routines need to be mixed up and changed constantly so as to not let it become monotonous. There are more than one ways to burn the same amount of calories or stretch the same body part. You can try kickboxing, or belly dancing, tap dancing or any other dancing that you enjoy. You could also join your favorite sport club for a more organized workout regime.
Now that you know how you can get over the boredom and monotony of daily exercising, go ahead and burn your calories away. Keep it energetic.
