Having Fun During Your Workouts
Exercising does not have to be repetitive. By becoming creative with exercising, you will find a renewed motivation to work out and stay fit. A lot of people give up on their exercise routines because they do not spice up their activities; think of a hamster running on its wheel for the next 2-3 years.
One of the keys to successful exercising is having fun doing it. For instance, why are you jogging on a treadmill? Go outside and enjoy the view: jog on the streets or a park in your neighborhood while enjoying nature and your surroundings. Leave the treadmills for the hamsters!
When you are lifting, are you putting on your headphones and rocking out to motivational music such as rock, hip hop or trance? If you are not, then you are missing out on a great deal of unlocked energy and potential which can help make your workouts more fun and enjoyable. Music helps you to establish a rhythm as well as put you in another state of mind which motivates you to work out harder!
When you are playing a sport such as basketball, soccer or tennis, are you actually having fun or just playing because you have no choice? You always have a choice! Either enjoy the sport and take in every moment of it or find something else to do! Do not waste your time playing a sport if you are not going to have fun performing in it.
For some people, exercising is fun when they are teaching others. If you are the type of person who enjoys teaching, find a friend who can start benefitting from exercising and guide them through their workouts; teaching can be very fun and engaging and provide you with more drive to stay active and fit!
It is no secret that the key to enjoying anything in life is having fun doing it. This is no different with work, education, socializing, vacations or exercising. Remind yourself that everything that you do must be enjoyed in a fun way. Viewing life from this perspective will deliver you more happiness and long-term prosperity!
