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?
- 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.
