Get Moving Before Your Brain Wakes Up: My Secret to Staying Motivated
As someone who owns a fitness and nutrition business, I've learned that getting motivated to exercise can be a struggle. However, I've discovered a simple trick that has worked wonders for me and may resonate with some of you.
The key is to get up and get moving before your brain can talk you out of it. If you wait too long, you'll find yourself making excuses and finding reasons not to exercise. For the last few weeks, I've been testing this theory on myself and offered it up to my clients as something to try, and the results have been amazing.
I start my day by getting out of bed, doing my hygiene routine, and slamming 32 oz of water before getting straight into a workout. By doing this, I've found that it supercharges my day and makes me more productive. It's amazing how much easier it is to stay motivated when you've already completed a workout before your brain has a chance to come up with excuses.
If you struggle with staying motivated to exercise, I encourage you to give this a try. Maybe it'll be the difference maker that turns you into a "workout person." Remember, the hardest part of any workout is getting started, so don't give your brain a chance to talk you out of it. Get up and get moving, and you'll be amazed at how much more energized and productive you'll feel throughout the day.
