ONE, SIMPLE, life hack that will motivate even the laziest person to workout DAILY!
You have good intentions when it comes to working out, right? But let’s face it, unfortunately, good intentions don’t burn off yesterday’s pint of Ben and Jerry’s.
Many of us struggle to balance everything we have going on, and when it comes to exercise, we simply don’t make it a priority. Why? Oftentimes because…well, we just don’t want to!
After having my baby it was a lot harder to get outside and exercise or go to the gym for a group class. My husband and I decided to get a treadmill so I could work out while my child napped. I would run on the treadmill almost every day but you know what? It got pretty old. A lot of the time, I just wasn’t super excited to work out. Then I made one small change—a rule for myself—and it changed everything!
Here’s the secret Life Hack to Motivate You to Workout:
I chose a show on Netflix (or use Amazon Video) that was completely, 100% binge-worthy. We’re talking about a show that leaves you on a cliffhanger at the end of pretty much every episode. Then I made a rule that I could only watch that show when I was working out, no cheating allowed!
Whether I was running on the treadmill or doing squats and lunges or pushups and sit-ups in my living room, I would get out my iPad or laptop and put on my binge-worthy show. The time would fly by and by the end of the episode, if my daughter was still sleeping, I would actually want to keep working out! I wanted to see what would happen next in my show!
Once your workout is over, it doesn’t matter how much of a cliffhanger you are left dangling on, you cannot watch what happens next until you’re once again working out! I’m telling you—this will make even the laziest among us count down the hours.
