Living a healthy lifestyle is not an easy task; it takes dedication, focus and consistency. I’m not here to tell you it’s simple and effortless, however, I am here to provide you with tips on how to make working out a part of your lifestyle. These tips will help you get into routine and make exercise become a natural part of your day.

Plan Ahead: Schedule your workouts just like you do your appointments & errands. On days I work from home, I like to plan my workouts in the afternoons at around 1:00 or 2:00 pm, this way I can I plan my meetings around those times. It also allows you to look forward to taking that mid-day break from the office and clearing your mind. If you can’t get away from work during the day, then schedule it directly before or after. Don’t allow yourself to go home after work, the urge to hit the couch becomes too tempting.

Update that Gym Outfit: I’ve always been adamant about having nice gym clothes. If you feel good, you look good and when you look good, you feel a sense of motivation. I also find that putting a little effort into your pre or post gym outfit is a key way to make working out a part of your lifestyle. Throwing on a cute ball cap and a jean jacket are easy ways to still look chic when you need to run errands before or after a workout.

Take Progress Photos: There is nothing more motivating than seeing results in your body, Take a monthly photo of yourself in a bikini and look back on them from time to time to see the changes your body has made.

Find Gyms and Classes Close to Your Home: My gym is a 5 minute walk away from my house and I have found this to be a huge factor in maintaining my workouts. Even on days that are way too busy for a full hour at the gym, having my gym close by makes it accessible for me to run over for a quick 20-30 minute intense session.

Eat Right: If you are serious about a healthy life than it has to be a full circle. From food, to sleep, to exercise – they all have to be balanced in order for you to maintain the life you want. If you eat bad, you won’t feel like working out as often and you definitely won’t see long term results. If you don’t get enough sleep, you will be to tired to even think about working out. It all becomes a domino effect if you lose control of one area in your life.
