The world is slowly coming back to life. Did you fall out of your routine. Do you feel like you lost your mojo’ I get it I’m just a routine person myself. It my routines that have helped me to develop consistency. If you are looking for the road back to “normal” I’ve got 10 tips to help you get back on track.
- UNPLUG-– It’s not about the hustle. Tune out the exercise more voices in your head. Schedule time in your calendar, maybe every Sunday morning or an hour before bed each night. It doesn’t have to be a huge block of time – just enough to give your brain some rest from always being plugged into everything that’s going on in our world.
- ONLY HAVE ONE GOAL — I get it you want to be “back” where you were pre Coronavirus. Ladies pump the break. You WILL get back there, but rushing won’t be the way. STOP putting so much pressure on yourself for it to happen overnight. One of the top ways to get motivated and stay that way is to focus on one goal at a time. Give it your total focus and appreciate each little step, letting the small victories add up.
- GET A COACH — One of the best ways to get motivated is to hold yourself accountable to someone else. This is one of the reasons why you get a coach. It’s nice to have someone who looks over your shoulder and give you feedback that you are either moving in the right direction toward your goals or you need to course correct.

- GET ENOUGH SLEEP — Sleep is like fuel – our bodies need it to maintain health and well-being. When you are dragging ass the last thing you want to do workout and damn sure you don’t want to eat right! I just did a podcast on this, so if sleeping is a challenge for you, have a listen right here.
- KNOW YOUR WHY — When you are clear about what it is you want. You have all the motivation that you need. It’s my why that gets me out of bed on those cold dark mornings. Keep in mind the reason you when wanted to get healthier in the first place and you’ve found your motivation!
- TAKE A WALK — Walking is my jam! I was first told to walk to help me balance my hormones and to lower my stress levels. You ladies over 40 may want to take note. Besides, walking gets your blood flowing to your brain and extremities, and if you’ve been sitting at a desk or workstation for a long period, a brisk walk can help to get you re-energized and refocused on the task that needs to be conquered.
- SET A TIMER — Not feeling a workout’ I set a timer for 15 minutes and do whatever I can in 15 minutes. Then decide if you feel like more go for it, if you feel you’ve done all you can move in. Sometimes my workout is a foam roll and a good stretch and other times it turns into a full workout.
- SHARE YOUR GOAL — I have a Facebook Group, where you can share your goal and have other in the group cheer you on to victory. Who knows you may inspire someone to take action
- STAY HYDRATED — Our bodies are made up of up to 65% water. To get the party started keep a bottle of water in my bathroom and start drinking it as soon as I get up in the morning. Another way to get in your water is to get a cup that you only fill with water and keep it with you all day long. Set a goal for yourself (start small, remember) and then when you reach that goal for the day, reward yourself with a different type of beverage.
- LET GO OF THE OUTCOME — We all put so much pressure on ourselves to accomplish, that we push ourselves into exhaustion. Don’t worry how it’s going to turn out or if it will be done within the time frame you’ve allotted. Just let go and see how freeing it is. Be clear about what is that you want and how will you feel when you finally achieve it.
