6. Visualise your Success
When the motivation that made you begin practicing in the first place starts to fade, ask yourself if you have lost the perspective about the end goal. When this happens, look at your before-photo, and visualise how you’d like to look and feel once the goal has been reached. In order to see yourself in this position, find a secluded and quiet spot, and set aside 5-10 minutes picturing yourself reaching your goal. How does it feel? What has changed in your life? Try to really step into the moment. Setting aside several minutes a week to visualise yourself can help you stay focus on the goal in which you had invested so much time and energy.
7. Train in the Morning
It is a fact that sometimes our life is the obstacle we need to overcome. You have a busy schedule, day to day duties and minor problems that can come in the way of your training. If this sounds familiar, than finding training alternatives can be of great help to you. One of the solutions might be to move your training in the mornings. If you can get them done before something unexpected stops you, there will never be an excuse for missing a training. Moreover, you’ll go to work feeling accomplished knowing that you’ve done something good for your body!
8. Create Home Environment for Training
You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a home gym. However, investing some money in baying several props can help you move closer to your goals. It’s still better to do something than nothing at all. Even with your busy schedule you can set aside 20 – 30 minutes to train at home. You don’t even need much space. All you need is a set of weights, a mat and practice ball. If you really want to train at home and have room for this, than you can consider investing more.
9. Change the Old Gym with a New
Seeing the same old people in the same old gym can be tiresome and boring. Try visiting a new gym for a change. Try training on new equipment, meet new people and find out what your new environment has in store for you.
10. Give yourself some rest
If you have tried these motivational methods and still have no desire to visit a gym and train, maybe all you need is a rest. Sometimes the best method of motivation is to take a brake and recover. Resting after a week of physical activities can reduce your fatigue and help your body to fully recover from the physical torture you subject it. Take a rest, relax and recover, but avoid turning your one week of rest into a month-long leave.
