4 Easy Steps to Help you Get Back to your Workout Routine

Some things are easier said than done, especially if your fitness routine has fallen by the wayside. If it’s been some time since your last workout, here are some tips to get back on track:

  1.  Visualize:  The first step is usually the hardest. Visualization can be the key in taking that first step to establishing a consistent workout routine.  Visualizing yourself doing what you like to do can assist in taking action. Practicing meditation helps your mind to become focused on successfully completing upcoming tasks.
  2. Breathe:  The simple act of breathing slowly will calm the mind, turning the focus inward and away from the external stimulus that’s always getting in our way. The less distractions we have the more likely we will be able to put our focus to our workout.
  3. Walk:  Small yet consistent steps are important.  If you feel unfit, start by going for short walks.  Aim to walk a little further each day and build up your strength.
  4. Work:  Exercise a little more each day to build up a workout routine and to build stamina. Be aware of not overdoing it by listening to your body and any aches and pains.  Consistency is key!
