It’s hard to stay focussed and committed. To any kind of routine. Specially the kind of routine which may require you to wake up early and be on time for a fitness class. If your class is later in the day then you have to ignore every single excuse that might crop up for why you can’t be at the class, and just go to it. We all know we feel better post our yoga sessions, but why do so many people start with being regular and then lose steam? I’m not sure. But maybe there are a few things we can do to stay motivated, and at least to get to class despite not feeling motivated.
1. Join a class. A friend of mine used to go to the most expensive classes available because she would feel compelled to go so as not to waste all her hard earned money. It worked for her, it might for you too!
2. Whether the class is expensive or relatively cheap, make friends with people in your class. Or, better yet, join a class with a friend. So when you feel like staying in bed, then there will be someone to pull you out and into class.
3. If going to class is not possible for you then follow one of the numerous health/fitness blogs online and do routines in the comfort of your own home. But this does require you to prowl the web looking for videos which inspire you. These videos should feature routines and instructors who you want to spend an hour with every day. You may eventually get bored of the same videos, or you might exhaust someone’s videos. Then you need to start your research all over again and find other videos which will keep you on track.
As a start watch my videos and give me cmments and suggestions for the kind of videos that you feel can help you!
