Have you been keeping up with your workouts or struggling to stay consistent?
If you happen to find yourself in the place of skipping workouts and struggling to find time for yourself (now or in the future), here’s a quick tip to help you break the streak of inactivity:
Roll out your mat, set a 10-minute timer or press play on a 10-minute workout, and require nothing more of yourself than being on your mat for 10 minutes.
No pressure to do the full workout. Just be on your mat.
No pressure to feel high energy. Just be on your mat.
No pressure to perform. Just be on your mat.
Move, breathe, stretch.
When we go a long time between workouts, it’s easy to allow the feelings of guilt to get in the way of starting back up again.
It can feel like a massive thing to restart and get “back on track,” but it doesn’t have to be that way.
Just break the streak.
Start small and keep taking those small steps day after day, week after week. And remember you can use this trick to “break the streak” as often as you need to. (No one’s keeping score!)
Tuck this tip away for the future when you’re struggling with motivation or put it to use today.
You’re doing great, Robin. Just keep moving forward. All of us here at The Balanced Life are in your corner and cheering you on!
