How To Implement Exercise Consistently Into Your Life

Hello everyone it’s Zainab, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Recently, exercise has become something very consistent for me, I’ve set myself a routine and I’ve loved seeing the benefits. So today, I’ll be showing you how to consistently implement exercise into your life! Let’s jump into it!

First Of All, What Are The Benefits Of An Exercise Routine?

Benefits

  • Practising Discipline
  • Maintaining A Healthy Balance
  • Relieves Stress
  • Boosts Mood

& More! Honestly, I could do a whole post about the benefits of exercise, so if that’s something you’d like to see, let me know below. For now, here’s how you can implement a consistent exercise routine!

1 – Set Your Rest Days From The Beginning

Just like all habits, it’s key to set priorities from the get go. Therefore, with exercise it’s very important that you know which days will be the ones where you take a step back and take a break. This way, you can look forward to time to relax and recharge before jumping back into your physical fitness after the break.

2 – Don’t Be Afraid To Take Extra Days Off

I know this quite contradictory to the first point, but it actually makes sense! Our bodies are not machines, even with set rest days there’s no way we can be 100% every single time we exercise. Sometimes there can be illnesses or external factors such as lack of motivation that results in not wanting to workout. And the key thing to note is that it’s okay to have that happen and it’s okay to take extra days off.

If you think about it, if you force yourself to exercise when you don’t feel up to it, you might end up just resenting the exercise and you could lose consistency all together. So, remember to put yourself first, while also remaining disciplined. So don’t take days off for no reason, but if you’re feeling unwell – then you should!

3 – Use Other Activities As Forms Of Exercise

Exercise doesn’t have to be just going to the gym or following a home workout video. It can be anything you want it to be. For most people, exercise just constitutes to physical activity. It’s up to you to decide to intensity, length etc! Therefore, it’s perfectly fine to be in a PE lesson at school or you had a pretty physically tiring day, and count that as your exercise for that day.

    I wish I liked exercise more so that I’d do it more. I try to walk every day to get out and be some sort of active. I also stretch every morning to just get my muscles ready for the day. Like I said I wished I liked it more to do more, but it just doesn’t give me the endorphins it gives other people.

    Setting up rest days is a very interesting concept. I just make sure I have some movement every day.

    Though, what would count as a “physically” tiring day? You can be extremely exhausted, but not exactly from physical activity. It could be mentally draining, but still benefit from some form of physical movement to ease that mental stress.

      Yeah you’re right, even just a little bit of movement is beneficially!

      Hmm I’ve never really thought about it, I guess if you had a lot of movement or moving around?? Personally, if I had a mentally tiring day I probably would take that day as a ‘rest day’ as the mind is just as important as the body!

      What about you??
