Finding motivation during social distancing and lockdown can be challenging.
You may find yourself not having enough energy for daily tasks, let alone to begin your wellness journey.
Here are 3 effective ways to help you getting over the slump and instantly gain motivation to accomplish all that you set out to do!
1. Make a plan
“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Start by assessing your fitness level and be honest with yourself! Are you a beginner, intermediate, or advanced? Your starting point will be a reference to set realistic goals, measure and monitor progress.
After you’ve assessed your current level in mind, write out a wellness plan based on your schedule with activities you enjoy. Incorporate a variety of workouts to avoid hitting your plateau and help you see the best results.
Whether you have a preference for Yoga, Zumba, Pilates, Toning, Boot Camp, or HIIT, BellaVita is a lifestyle brand that is known for its variety of options and you can practice from the comfort of your home! Write out your schedule so you can visually see what you’re doing for the day. If you have trouble designing a plan, get help from a personal trainer virtually.
2. Get started!
“If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If not, you’ll find an excuse.” – Ryan Blair
Starting seems to be the hardest part! The worst thing you can do is wait for the perfect moment to begin. Just do it! Without a doubt, baby steps will put you in the right direction. That could mean going for a quick walk, turning on a free fitness class video, replacing the junk food you eat with healthy alternatives, taking mini breaks throughout the day for push ups and crunches, or even cleaning or shopping.
Then write out clear, short-term daily goals that will lead to long-term results and commit to them. For example, you could create a meal plan for the day, go for a short 30 minute walk, take a class, clean/organize a room or home.
Remember to get creative and get moving! Once you start and practice regularly, you’ll build momentum that will eventually become a habit that will become a regular part of your life. Track your progress with a calendar or journal so you can clearly see your daily activities. Start now! You’ll be grateful you did.
3. Have a purpose
“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.” – Lucille Ball
What is your “why?” The key to successfully achieving any goal is having a purpose. Your purpose will motivate you to keep going. Visualize your goal. How will achieving it make you feel and look? What emotions are tied to your goal? Meditation can help you get clarity and lead you to the results you want.
If you need inspo, look to positive social media channels, friends, family members, or even the BellaVita community for help. Remember in order to take care of loved ones you must take care of yourself first.
