Do you exercise daily already?
If not, it’s time to start.
Exercising daily has countless health benefits, but better sleep and more energy should be enough to start.
How to start exercising daily?
Begin with a small exercise habit, because a small exercise habit is easy to start and easy to continue.
In general, with every change in your life, you want to find something easy to change. Because if it’s too hard, there will come a day when you don’t want to do it anymore. No matter how high your willpower is.
That’s why you should start with something that is so easy that you cannot not do it.
Focus on a small exercise habit like running two minutes, ten push-ups, or twenty jumping jacks.
Still not convinced?
What is easier to do for the rest of the year:
- Running two minutes or forty minutes every day?
- Doing ten push-ups or going to the gym every day?
Could you train two hours today? Of course!
But will you be able to do it two months or even two weeks from now?
Most people won’t.
That’s why you want to build up consistency first and increase the volume of what you do later.
The beautiful thing is that we speak about a minimum exercise habit. If you want to do more today, you can. But if you want to do just ten push-ups or two minutes of running, that’s totally fine too.
Because the best exercise habit is the one you’ll actually stick to.
I promise you, if you start to do a small exercise habit for the next year, you will be a changed person at the end of it.
Because it will not only be easier than signing up to a gym and trying to go 3 times a week, but you will also build up the trust and believe in yourself that you can change your life.
And that’s all that it takes… The belief that you can do it.
That you can change your life!
That you can get what you want to have!
- Pick a small exercise habit! Something that you can do for the rest of the year.
- Make it so simple you cannot fail.
- If you fail, make it even simpler. Ten push-ups are too hard? Start with one. One is too hard? Start with jumping jacks.
- Building consistency & the habit has priority. Increase the intensity later.
