Three Simple Ways To Start Exercise A Habit

If you already exercise constantly, you
definitely know what I mean. But if you have not yet managed to be very active
in your daily routine, in this article I have for you 3 ways to start exercise
a habit and turning it into a real permanent habit (guaranteed).
Let’s face it: it’s not that difficult to start
an exercise routine. After all, most of us have tried it more than once.
The problem, of course, comes with doing it constantly
that is, turning it into a habit.
Very often, your initial enthusiasm evaporates
and your energy decreases little by little; you get distracted by other things
that happen in your life, or maybe you cannot see results quickly enough and
suddenly, boom ! You throw the towel.
The good news is that all your effort is well rewarded.

Habits Are Repeatable:

1. Develop a ritual to make it easier to start.
Habits are behaviors that you repeat over and over again, which means they are
behaviors that you start over and over again. In other words, if you do not
start consistently you will not have a habit. In many ways, acquiring new
habits is a simple exercise to start over and over again. This means that you
can find ways to make it easier to start. This is the reason why rituals and
routines are so important. If you can develop a ritual that makes your exercise
automatic, it will be easier to follow.
You can do the following exercise by completing
this sentence:
During the following week I will exercise the
(day) at (time) in (place). One study showed that the people who filled this
prayer exercised two or three times more over time.

This is a psychological concept called the
implementation of intentions and there are hundreds of studies that support it.

Start With An Exercise:

2. Start with an exercise that is very small. The
best way to make exercise a habit is to start with something that is so easy
that you can do it even when you do not have a great motivation. Using the
words of Leo Babauta, start with something that is so easy you cannot say no.
Here is a strategy you can use: The two minute rule.
It’s very simple: focus on finding a way to start
in two minutes instead of worrying about the whole exercise. Are you struggling
to find the motivation to run? Fill a bottle with water and put on your
sneakers. That’s all you have to do to consider today’s exercise a success. Often
this two minute start will be enough to motivate you and help you finish the
task.

Focus On The Habit:

3. Focus on the habit first and the results
later. The typical approach to diet and exercise is in the results. Many people
start with some kind of goal; “I want to lose 20 kilos in the next four
months.” I think this is the wrong approach, it’s better to do it based on
a system rather than on the goal.

What matters most at the beginning is to
establish a normal routine that you want to join, not the results you get. In
other words, the first six months it is more important not to miss training
than to make some progress. Once you are the type of person who does not miss
training you can worry about improving.
Once you have the exercise habit, you will find
thousands of ways to improve. Without the habit, every strategy is useless.
