Have you ever noticed how difficult it is to get mind to love working out? Are you interested in making the act of exercising easier?
I know that sometimes it’s difficult for me. I try all kinds of temporary tricks like consuming fake energy drinks with plenty of caffeine. I get the latest fitness tool. I’ve tried a ton of tricks. To get going, we need to engage our minds so our bodies follow.
Here are three quick ways to getting off that couch and actually start working out:
– You’ve Got To Talk Up The Positive. For example, saying stuff like “I’m the best” or “I can do this” or “I’m invincible” instead of “I can’t stand this Jacob’s ladder machine for another 10 minutes” or “I can’t finish this boot camp cardio class”. Research show that it’s not productive to dwell on negative thoughts or mantras, say positive ones instead. Take your energy up by creating a mental happy place. Just saying out loud, repeated positive mantra when you’re near empty when you’re going for those 50 crunches. Say, “I’m invincible” and continue doing it.
– Embraced The Tunes. To make your gym time or your exercise at home time much more easier to manage; make it a breeze by listening to music on your MP3 player or CD audio player. It works better than TV show time, watching your favorite sitcom. Recent studies show that by listening to tunes, people felt more positive during the workouts as they listen to tunes instead of watching TV. Listen to fantastic motivational audio programs by Jim Rohn.
– Eye Your Prize. According to the book “The Mental Athlete” by Kay Porter. When you flutter your eyelashes for several seconds, say three seconds, and then blink slowly three times, the quickness may trigger a mind-refreshing reflex in your brain that gives you a psychological burst of energy. Try it. Three seconds blinking, then blink slowly three times. It has to do with the quick switches from light to dark. For details, check out her book.
As you can see, you can sneak these unique mind tricks that can instantly get you to love working out.
