Making Fitness a Habit
Making fitness a habit in your life and actually committing to a fitness routine are two different things. Changing your behaviour and lifestyle is difficult, and this is especially true when you try to change everything at once. But what if you could harness the power of your habit for the better? Imagine a life where you are more healthier, happier and productive than ever. This is possible only when you have a foundation of good habits.
Here are some strategies to changing your habits that will, in turn, change your entire life:
1. Build your personal exercise routine without skipping a workout.
2. Start with moderate intensity exercises like walking, cycling, swimming, jumping ropes, walking stairs, etc. Do it nice and easy just for 20 minutes in the beginning. Even 10-15 minutes is fine. The key is to get your body used to daily exercise and form that habit.
3. Once your body gets used to daily exercise, you can increase the intensity of your exercises to 30 and then 40 minutes and alternatively go for running, swimming, cycling and body weight exercises like tuck jump, inchworm, bear crawl, mountain climber, squat, single leg dead lift, squat reach and jump, standard push-up, superman, arm circles, boxer, flutter kick, sprinter sit-up and others.
4. It is always good to have one day rest where you are not doing the same exercises as the other six days but that does not mean you can skip the day because then you are not been consistent with your habit. You can just do 20 minutes of walking or can even meditate.
After doing this for over a month or two, you will observe that you have established a healthy habit.
