Trick your Mind into Exercising

Everyone hates exercising. Even I used to. Yes, past tense. Used to hate it but not anymore. Right now actually, I love my exercising routine. Don’t judge me. I am not a freak or an exercise addict. I am a completely normal person like you are.

There were days when I used to hate it but things changed for good. I’ll tell you how I started loving something I hate and believe me, you’ll be happily stunned. All you need to do is trick your mind.

Yes, stop letting your brain play with you. It is time you played a tad with it for your own benefit. Every time you feel lazy or too tired to go to the gym and workout, tell yourself you won’t do it for more than 10 minutes or just tell yourself you will run only a mile today.

Believe me, you will run more than a mile and you will exercise more than for 10 minutes. You might just end up extending your training to 45 minutes.

Don’t create impossible tasks for yourself. Keep them simple and short. If it exceeds the short limit, good for you (and surely it will). If it does not, well something is always better than absolutely nothing!

Take Care of Yourself

Staying fit is like a curse these days. With our hectic jobs and so much on our mind, we barely pay attention to our health. Exercise is very important to stay fit and we all know that. Yet, we choose to ignore it or sometimes, are forced to. Whatever the reason may be, it is surely not worth risking your health for.

The human body needs exercise to stay fit. Staring at your computer at work and staring at your TV at home while absently munching on junk food won’t help you even one bit. You need to move around, take a walk, eat good food and sleep well.

Begin the day with a brisk walk. Wake up just half an hour early and go for a walk. Trust me; it’ll do you a lot of good.

When you are in your office, keep your work environment friendly and relaxed. Get some flowers or probably a small potted plant. The fragrance will help you a lot. You won’t be stressed.

No matter what happens, never eat at your work desk. You won’t realize how much you are eating and what you are eating either. You will be too occupied with your work. So, move out of your cabin, go to the canteen or outside and eat calmly there.

Get good sleep. Don’t lay awake each night thinking about your work. Get a good 8 hours sleep so that you are fresh the next morning.

Just follow a few simple tips and stay fit. You don’t need to have a mini gym in the house for it. Some stretches, a little yoga, some meditation, etc is enough.

Take care!
