5 tips to help you to get back on track.
Updated: Jun 28, 2020
After two months and a half out of the gym, you might need a few tricks to help you get back on your routine.
The chilly mornings will be calling you to stay in bed. You’ll make a list of excuses to not get up: "I’m too tired. It’s too cold. It’s raining. It’s so cosy here. It’s too late now"…
Don’t listen to that sleepy-head voice!
You need to overcome this little -inner -self -sabotage- chat and do what you promise to yourself the night before.
You might get stuck in a habit loop, and to create a new habit you need to break that old pattern, act, repeat, and do it again. Your brain needs to unlearn the old pattern and relearn the new behaviour (Dr. Joe Dispenza).
Action and consistency is the key.
But let me tell you something : you are not going to feel like. You need to act on it.
This is what you can do:
1) Plan, book all your sessions for the week on Sunday. Book on your app. Put on your calendar. Write it down. Make it visible. Stick on your fridge.
2) Separate your workout clothes, shoes, filled water bottle, towel, mat, the night before. Leave it out. Make your life easy.
3) Set your alarm clock, and when the alarm goes out, use the powerful Mel Robbins "5 seconds countdown rule", count 5 to 1 and on 1 launch yourself out of bed like a rocket. Don’t think. Don’t overthink. Act.
4) If you tend to hit the snooze button, have your alarm clock away from the bed then you need to get up to turn it off.
5) Set yourself for success, the night before have an early light dinner, get away from your devices two hours before bedtime, grab a book and go to bed early.
See you on the gym floor.
