Motivation – getting here is the hardest part
It can be hard to find the motivation to make it to a work out class after a long day at work, or on your day off. Personally, I love my couch, I long for it when I am not on it. I would live on it if I could. I am hard to motivate, especially when I have to get off my couch and drive somewhere to work out. It is so much easier to just not. How do you do it then? You ask.
Set reasonable goals for yourself
I used to tell myself I would commit to working out every day, this is extreme and hard to stick to. Since it is not a reasonable goal, I end up failing to meet my goals and I get discouraged. Recently, I began to set more achievable goals for myself. I will work out no less than 3 times a week. Ideally I would like to hit 4 or 5 workouts a week, but no less than three gives me wiggle room. Those days when I am in love with my couch, I can still have those and not feel guilty because I can take a day off, I just have to make sure I go another day.
Some people are totally motivated by rewards, if this sounds like you, you might think about making little deals with yourself. On the days you do work out, let yourself have treat, maybe it is a chocolate bar… or something else super awesome. I like to buy Vega protein bars because they are super sweet and chocolaty and they are also full of protein. I look forward to getting to eat one, so gives me a little more motivation to get to a class.
Anxiety and Stress relief
A lot of us work jobs that cause a considerable amount of stress at some point or another. Getting physical allows you to get into your body and out of your head. This is important because when we think too much about what we have to do, what happened during the day, and other things that plague our minds, our anxiety levels increase. Activities like aerial dancing are very helpful for getting us out of our heads because they require a lot of focus, basically, it is impossible to think about a bad boss when you are trying not to fall on your head or when you are trying to memorize a dance sequence. Exercise also releases endorphins; think of these as happy little natural painkillers produced by your body.
Classes at Cherry Blossom are great opportunities for socializing, many of us have a lot going on in our lives and it can be hard to focus on a social life when life happens. Why not kill two birds with one stone, as the saying goes, and get in a workout while socializing!
Most of all, working out at Cherry Blossom is Fun! We all need a little fun in our lives, no matter what age.
Now you have no excuses not to get off the couch! You are welcome!
