You know exercise if good for you, but what do you do when you don’t have the energy for it? Here are some tips that professional trainers do when they don’t feel like working out:
First, just do a few minutes – a workout doesn’t need to be long to be of benefit – 20 minutes of walking or jogging can go a long way.
Listen to music first – in can get you in the right space to help motivate you.
Also, find a fun way to move – if you don’t like running, try something else – jumping rope, rowing, a spin class – if you like doing something, you’ll be more motivated to do it.
And sometimes, it’s okay if you just don’t want to work out. An extra rest day occasionally is fine – the last thing you want is to push yourself to the point where you hate to exercise.
