Let’s look at some motivation tactics for 2020. Sticking to New Year resolutions can be tricky. If you are tired of the same old goals that you never seem to accomplish, maybe it is time for a fresh start! Here, 3 fresh new motivation tactics to keep you going in the New Year.
3 Motivation Tactics
- Find A Fun Workout. You will be a lot more likely to stick to your workout when you enjoy it. If you usually push yourself hard in the New Year, only to quit soon after you start, maybe it is time for a different approach. Try starting with something less intense, like yoga or dance. Set a reasonable goal, like attending class twice a week. Enlist a friend to join you and keep you accountable.
- Don’t Get Stuck. Give yourself permission to try new things. Did you try that new class and find out it wasn’t for you? Appreciate the courage it took to try something new and move on to something else. You might find that you crave the solitary time of walk or that group exercise keeps you motivated. Keep looking for something you enjoy- you’ll be a lot more likely to stick to exercise when you enjoy doing it.
- Timing Is Key. Do you set yourself up for failure by aiming to exercise at a difficult time? If you always try to run in the morning, but you are just not a morning person, don’t force it. Instead, try taking a short run at lunch or after work. Look at your schedule to see what works for you and experiment. Exercise is also effective in short spurts- maybe try walking for ten minutes three times a day.
Being more flexible in your approach towards exercise can help you be more successful.
