Find it hard to stay motivated in the colder months. We all do but remember summer bodies are earned in winter.
Here are some tips on staying motivated when all you want to do is hibernate!
Goal setting is so important. This can be a great motivator. Achieving a goal will make all that hard work worth it and encourage you to stay on track. Make sure your goals are meaningful to you and are SMART – specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound! If your goal is all of these things the chance of you sticking to it and reaching it is very high.
When you achieve a goal celebrate and reward yourself. Not with cake or a night out but with new activewear (who doesn’t want new activewear!), or your favourite tea. Take a moment to bask in what you have achieved and then start aiming for the next goal! You’ve got this!
TRAIN WITH A FRIEND
Organising to train with family or friends will keep you accountable. If someone is waiting for you, you are more likely to turn up and work out. So call someone now and organise a morning or evening run. Lock in the time and location and then stick to it!
Now all that’s left is to get EXCITED. So find what you love to do and do it. Set your goals, reward yourself and if needed find a friend to help keep you accountable.
