We have just about 2 weeks left in 2020. The year that felt like it had 27 months….
Combine that with the usual struggle that is the holiday season, and motivation can go out the door REAL QUICK
I wanted to share a few quick things you can do between now and January 1st to help you stay positive and stay motivated towards your goals and the new year.
1. DONT step on the scale.
For a couple reasons…
A) The scale isn’t the be all end all of progress. It only tells you a number at that exact day and time. Stepping on it 20 minutes or a day later, and it can tell you a totally different number….
B) Just about everyone strays from their normal routines and diets during this time of year, and you don’t need that kind of negativity, or stress, in your life. Save the scale for 2021.
2. Work out as early as possible.
Working out has a ton of mental benefits, so kick those off as soon as you wake up.
Even if it 5-10 minutes of jumping Jacks and squats. It counts!
Doesn’t just bring a physical benefit (that’ll motivate you to crush the day!), but the mental benefit of “checking the box” of exercise, really helps boost your motivation to do more the rest of the day.
And getting your workout in early means you don’t let your day get in the way, like it tends to do.
3. Consume things that gets you pumped.
Favorite playlist/album/artist. But it on blast.
For a quick jolt of motivation, Youtube search: Motivational Video. There’s a TON to choose from.
I know some go on social media and watch a few of their favorite fitness influencers. That can be a gift & a curse, but if it works for you, go for it.
Remember, motivation doesn’t last on its own. Sometimes you have to create it yourself. Sometimes you have to find it in others. Just keep going.
You. Got. This.
