I had an especially cold run this morning with the girls. Often when people find out we work out every morning they ask 'how we find the motivation', well I cannot speak for the girls but I thought I would share some tips I have found that works for me
~Lay out all your workout clothes and necessities before you go to bed
~Put your alarm clock where you cannot reach it from your bed, so you actually have to get out of bed to turn it off
~Workout with other people who will
~Tell yourself you will feel better having done the workout, endorphins baby!
I have always been a person who prefers to workout in the mornings, so it actually doesn't take as much motivation for me to get up and do it. If I was suppose to workout later in the day I would probably be skipping workouts all the time, for some reason I really don't enjoy working out later in the day and usually find all sorts of excuses to not. So it's important for each person to find what works for them.
Another comment I often hear is 'how do you find the time' this one is harder, I just make the time. I believe we all have the same amount of time available to us each day - 24 hours, and we just have to prioritize how we spend that time. I chose to get up early in order to find the time to workout, this also means I have to go to bed earlier, which is when I used to pick up the house. I have compensated by having the kiddos help me in picking up before bedtime
How do you make the most of your time? What activities do you prioritize over others?
