#1 Start Small
If you have not worked out for a while, it may be an intimidating thought to start again. The best way to overcome this anxiety is to start small. You don’t need to begin by working out for hours on end or taking the most challenging exercise classes. Commit to exercising for 10 minutes a day, three days a week to establish a habit of being active. Over time, you can increase the amount and frequency.
Do as much prep work as possible to make your workout routine easier. Look at your schedule for the week to act as a guide. It may be better to plan on working out in the mornings or evenings depending on the day. Prepare by laying out your gym and work clothes or packing lunch the night before, for example. Advanced prepping and planning can actually free up more time for your workout!
#3 Find the Workout for You
It will be more likely that you will find success in a workout routine if you find the right kind of exercise for you. Take a yoga or CrossFit class, join a running group, or maybe take a dancing class. Don’t be afraid to experiment and take the time to figure out what kind of work out is best for you.
It’s usual to have moments of weakness or to make mistakes when forming a new habit. That’s ok! Don’t let this discourage you from returning to your workout routine. The only way to fail at establishing a workout routine is to abandon it completely.
