It’s hard getting up in the morning to go exercise. And as the sun rises later, it’s gets even tougher. Though I find I do better, more rigorous workouts in the morning than at the end of the day. So when I struggle to get up in the morning to go the gym and think really hard about reaching for that snooze button, I think of these three things that I say to myself: 1) I know that when I work out especially with weights, I actually feel the endorphins working and start to feel good – more energetic, stronger – during the workout; 2) I know that once I’ve worked out and am starting my workday, I feel like I can take on the world – and life’s challenges – because I’ve already accomplished something for myself; and 3) I know that with working out, I fit into my clothes better, look better and feel stronger throughout the day. I use this mantra to help me focus on my commitment to better workout routines. Try it and let me know if it works for you.
