Even the most dedicated fitness enthusiast can have a hard time working out in the winter. I know I certainly have difficulties sometimes which is why I wanted to share my insight on how I handle the weather blues and help everyone else feeling the same.
Cold days and long nights make it hard to get out of your cozy bed, let alone get moving. However, there are simple ways to change your mindset about the weather and get moving 🙂
Here are 10 tips on how to motivate yourself to stay active this winter.
1. Figure out what time of the day works best for you
2. You can workout from the comfort of your home
The cold can’t stop you from working out and i’m living proof you don’t need a gym membership to exercise ;). You can easily workout from the comfort of your home with your bodyweight! There are tons of different varieties of workout you can find on youtube or follow my 2 weeks abs challenge and if you are starting out you can try my Beginners challenge.
3. Remind yourself why it's important
4. Focus on the mental health benefits of it
5. Invest in winter workout wear
6. Treat yourself afterwards
7. There’s going to be summer once this is over
8. Think of how warm you’re going to feel when done.
9. Find a workout buddy
Grab a friend or family member to hold you accountable. Having someone to frequently exercise can be a motivation in itself. It also opens doors of opportunity to trying something new. You don’t need a gym or studio, just each other and some space at your home with one of these workouts – Intermediate / Beginners Workout.
10. Update your playlist
Music is a great motivator and can help to distract you from fatigue. As it gets colder and darker outside, your playlist needs to step it up to keep you going! As the seasons begin to change take the time to revamp your playlist and reap the benefits.
