Mar 31, 2019 01:11
Making up your mind to workout can be pretty straining at first, but once you cultivate it as a hobby, there's nothing stopping it. A healthy body and a healthy mind pave the way for a happy soul.
At times, you might feel envious of the athletes and bodybuilders and wonder how are they able to maintain their jaw-dropping physique?
The answer lies in consistency.
Yes, you need to be consistent with your workouts in order to achieve your desired body goals. Exercising is neither a cakewalk nor a one day job. It will give you the desired results over a period of time provided you remain consistent with your exercise routine and diet.
You will be able to remain consistent once you stop making excuses and focus only on your goal. Whenever you feel like giving up, remember why you started in the first place. Give up the ‘giving up attitude’.
Your consistency and your patience will take you a long way in your fitness journey. Pay special attention to the following tips that will help you to remain consistent with your workouts.
Follow these tips to stay consistent with your workouts
1. Start with a goal in your mind
Having a predetermined goal in your mind provides you a direction. Start with small and attainable goals. Then move to bigger goals. If you aim at a big goal, chances are that you might not be able to achieve these goals and this failure will weigh you down. Hence, always start with a small goal.
The happiness that you’ll get from achieving even the smallest of goals will prove to be the motivator while striving to achieve bigger goals.
So, set the right goals at the right time and track your progress. Remember one thing that though some of your goals may seem unattainable they are after all not impossible to attain anyway and this thought will push you forward every time you feel like giving up.
2. Set your workout and diet plan
Different people have different body types and different metabolism rates. Apart from this, their fitness goals are also different.
Hence, sticking to someone else's workout or diet plan just because it worked out for them may not be a wise decision to make. What works for others may not work for you. You need to know how your body works, what exercises suits you and what your body requires in terms of nutrition.
This sure will take some time but once you know what your body needs, you can reap the maximum benefits out of your workouts. You will then be able to customize your own workout and diet plans and it would be much easier for you to stick to them because you will see clear results.
3. Find out ways to enjoy during your workouts
If you are of the thought that workouts are always boring and there is no way in which you can make your workouts enjoyable, you are hands down wrong.
You can always find a way to enjoy while exercising. Even starting with doing those exercises that you love doing will inculcate the fun factor in your workouts.
For example, dancing is a great way to burn calories and most of the people enjoy it. So if you are not fond of the boring cardio exercises switch to dancing.
Another way is to listen to your favorite music while exercising. Music makes you feel more energetic and it will eliminate the boredom altogether. So, get good sweat-proof durable earbuds.
If you find your own way of making your workouts more fun, you will be looking forward to exercising rather than running away from it.
4. Invest in yourself
If fitness is your top priority, do not hesitate to spend a few bucks on the necessary fitness and exercising equipment. Most of the people would like to workout at the gym. But, if you like to workout at your home rather than going to the gym, try investing in spin bikes, treadmills or ellipticals.
Saving a few bucks might be a hindrance in your fitness journey so it is wise to invest in the required equipment. They will, after all, assist you in reaching your goal.
5. Exercise in the morning
Try to take the time out from your busy schedule and exercise in the morning itself. Morning is the best time to work out because you feel fresh and energetic in the morning.
So make it a habit to work out in the morning in order to stay fit and healthy.
So, these are some tips to help you remain consistent with your workouts. Make it a point to follow these tips and you will never think about skipping your workouts ever again. Goodluck!

Excessive alcohol consumption or illegal substance abuse are actions that can turn the life of an individual upside down, regardless of their relationship status, job position or age.
