Exercise can be tough to get motivated for, especially when you have so many other things going on in your life. But there are a few psychological and behavioral strategies you can use to help get yourself moving:

  • Make exercise a non-negotiable part of your schedule: By prioritizing exercise, you can ensure that it gets done, no matter what.

  • Look ahead to the benefits that exercise will bring to your future self: By considering the positive effects that exercise will have on your future self, you can motivate yourself to get moving today.

  • Try "temptation bundling" by pairing a workout with something you enjoy: Whether it's watching your favorite show or listening to a podcast, "temptation bundling" can make exercise more enjoyable and easier to get motivated for.

  • Remember that people will judge, no matter what: Don't let other people's opinions hold you back from taking care of your body. Exercise is about self-care and self-love, not about trying to please others.

  • Use imagery to visualize yourself having a successful workout: By closing your eyes and visualizing yourself having a successful workout, you can get yourself motivated and ready to go.

By using these strategies, you can overcome the excuses and start exercising, even when you don't feel like it.
