✅ Make specific goals. Don’t just say that “I want to lose weight”. Your goal needs to have specific timeframes in which you can finish it. It should also be measurable. So you can track your progress to motivate yourself.
✅ Set realistic goals. Never expect to lose 20 Kg in two weeks or even three. Set goals that are realistic for you to achieve. Make sure you have the resources to be able to achieve your goals. Don’t choose sports like swimming or jogging if you don’t have access to a pool near you or if you want to run outside if you know the weather will be freezing for the next few months.
✅ Set reminders. Make notes that remind you of the benefits of achieving your goals. Make sure you put them in a place where you can always see them.
✅ Schedule your workout. Set time for exercising on your calendar, just as you would a doctor’s appointment or work. You can use your phone to set yourself a reminder when it’s time to start working out.
✅ Put it in writing. Take a notebook with you to write down your goals for the week. Write down your results as well. After finishing your workout, make notes of what you did and for how long it took you. Seeing your progress on paper is a great way to motivate yourself.
✅ Get a partner. Suppose you have a tendency to bail from exercises fast. In that case, trying to exercise with a partner who can keep you accountable the whole time might be a good option.
