Today’s guest post is from Karen Broda, who’s previously been on the blog to teach us how getting more sleep will improve productivity and happiness. Today she’s breaking down the best tips to find the motivation to exercise, even when you think you don’t have time.
I’m SO guilty of “Screw the workout, I’m in a work-zen mode!” It was often my go-to when I did CrossFit, to be honest. But exercise is vital for creative entrepreneurs, so I’ve been working hard to prioritize it. We need to feel our best to do our best work, after all!
Read on to see what 5 steps Karen suggests to help combat the urge to ditch your workouts.
5 steps to find the motivation to exercise
(regardless of time and energy)
You’re a crazy busy, Type-A woman and often the first thing to go is your workout.
I get it, that’s me as well. And at one time I felt like I could never manage work, hobbies, life, healthy eating, and consistent workouts. Why? Because I wanted (and NEEDED) to do everything. But when our sleep, mood, mental game, strength, and confidence all start to suffer when we DON’T make time to eat healthily and get to the gym, I’d say it’s time for action!
Whether its motivation, time, energy, or just being “too busy”, I have a solution for each that will get you working out every time. And a strong and fit body means a strong and sharp mind, right?
