Have your routine, exercise with a friend, or join a class.
“The Power of Habit” by Charles Duhigg book talks about a chart shown above. With this chart, you can easily create a habit of exercise.
Cue – something that would remind you about exercise. It could be setting your clothes out at night for the morning, or it can be the shoes.
Routine – when you exercise.
Reward – is the feeling of endorphin rush in your body, shower, laying with raised feet, or something else that you enjoy doing.
Craving – your body will want this feeling again.
Listening to a podcast, or youtube has helped me be motivated to exercise. I pick one of the topics that I’m currently interested in and listen to everything about the topic! Time flies so fast when my mind is distracted from exercise, that I don’t even realize how fast I get to the finish!
Have a group of friends who loves to hike, walk, or jog. Take a class with your best friend at the fitness center.
I have ordered two more books that I cannot wait to read! “One year one challenge for women, thinner, leaner, and stronger than ever in just 12 months” by Michael Matthew and another one that is called “Thinner Leaner Stronger: The Simple Science of Building the Ultimate Female Body” by Michael Matthews.
