5 Ways to Make Your Exercise Routine More Consistent

Are you annoyed by the fact that you always get spurs of motivation to begin a better lifestyle by exercising but will always fall short in consistency? Here are some ways to help you improve your consistency in exercising.

1. Commit to a certain schedule. Whether it's 3 times a week or everyday, commit to it! Also commit to a certain time. Most people like to get up earlier in the morning because they can do it more consistently as compared to any other time of the day. Some people like to exercise in after work. Some would prefer night time because all the tasks are done for the day. Whichever you choose, choose the best one which you think you can commit mostly.

2. Write it down. When people write things down, they tend to remember it during the day and their minds become set to do it. So write it down on your daily 'to-do list', or write it on a post-it where you can see it very often.

3. Pick a workout routine that is short, but do it repetitively. Let's say your goal is to work out for at least 30 minutes a day. Sometimes we lack motivation because we don't have that "sense of accomplishment" since we cannot finish a 30-minute long routine. A solution for this is, to follow a routine for 10 minutes, and repeat 2 more times, so that it makes 30 minutes. You'll have a greater sense of accomplishment since you can finish one routine in 10 minutes. If you watch videos on YouTube for your routines, pick a short one and do it for 2-3 times.

4. Just do it! Like what the Nike ad says, you just need to get up and start on it. It's flat-out obvious, getting up and actually starting on it is the first step in getting it done. Don't entertain the thought of procrastinating in your routine because you'll have bigger chances of not doing it at all, and then you will hate yourself for being unproductive. The vicious cycle goes on. So, better start on it and just do it.

5. Keep track. Buy a weighing scale or a measuring tape, or take pictures of yourself during 4 weeks intervals. For your motivation to keep going, you must take note of the changes. Even if there are none, you should always keep in track. This will help you find out if your routine is effective for you or not.

Keep in mind these things and you'll be on your way to a more consistent workout routine. God bless!
