The number one reason people say they do not exercise is lack of time. Not long ago, a twenty-year study was completed centering on theory that, “There is not as much time in day as there used to be.” The study concluded that just opposite was true. It showed that with all technology today, we have 1.5 more hours in a day than we did twenty years ago. In other words, with all gadgets out there to help us communicate and manage our time, we should have an hour and a half more time for ourselves. What is solution? With a little prioritizing and some time management, we can find time to exercise! TIME FRAMES
As you get closer to reaching your goal, start thinking in back of your mind of next goal. You need to establish your next focus point to keep you on track. However, make sure you are convinced that you will reach present goal in established time period.
Setting time frames for your daily workouts is a great motivator. It keeps you focused, you feel more productive, and in end workouts do not feel like a big effort.
One of smartest things I have ever decided to do in my career was to put a time frame on how long my workouts would be. Your workouts can feel like a job if they take a lot of time.
Knowing that I had to be finished within a certain time period encouraged me to focus on what I needed to do. This also created more intensity or effort in my workouts and I achieved better results. Time frames also helped in not letting workouts get boring. I looked forward to next workout knowing how little time it was going to take.
CONSISTENCY + VARIETY+ EFFICIENCY= RESULTS, all time!
We all have different methods of motivating ourselves. Most of us set goals to us give a sense of urgency. When setting goals, two mistakes should be avoided.
REALISTIC GOALS VS. LIFESTYLES
In some circumstances, demands of life do not permit accomplishments of lofty goals. In most cases, time management solves this problem. However, you need to be realistic. Expectations can be set so high and when responsibilities do not allow you to get there, frustration can be paralyzing. This does not give you a reason to forget setting high goals; you just don’t want to set yourself up for failure.
