We’ve all been there; it’s time to get your workout in for the day, and you roll your eyes thinking, “do I really have to do this today?” Friend, we’ve ALL been there! Everyone gets stuck in a rut when it comes to working out, even myself! So, in this week’s blog, I wanted to share some tips and tricks for when your workouts start to feel like a chore.
1). Find a New TV Show to Binge
Listen, there’s no excuse to not have a tv show to keep you entertained while you workout! Right now, I’m loving Virgin River on Netflix, but there are so many options out there! Whether Disney +, Netflix, or any of the other platforms are your jam, find something new and dive in! (Your workout will fly by, I promise!)
2). Binge a Podcast/Update your Playlist
Sometimes a new set of music or podcast will do the trick! I love listening to things that inspire me and keep me motivated while I workout. Some of my favorite podcasts include:
-The Bossbabe Podcast
-Mind your Business
3). Change your Scenery
If you usually workout in a gym, try working out at home. Or, if you workout at home, try doing your workout outside. A change of scenery can be reinvigorating, even if it’s just swiping from your living room to your backyard!
4). Switch up Your Routine
If you do the same exact exercises for too long, you’ll plateau. Aside from that, you’ll get bored! So, don’t be afraid to switch up what exercises you’re doing, or the methods you use every 6-8 weeks. It’s give you more of a challenge, and make you feel more excited!
5). Take a Break
Sometimes, you just need a day off, am I right? Rest days are so important when it comes to muscle recovery, reducing stress, and healing injuries. But, if you really just can’t seem to find the motivation or discipline, take a day off! You’ll feel more inclined to get back into it the next day.
