Introducing healthy habits is a difficult and painstaking process, because it usually involves changing previously known patterns in terms of diet and exercise, that is, introducing new, different systems.
People usually set unrealistic goals that discourage and demotivate them, that’s why Toshe Zafirov, personal trainer, believes that the key to the success of quality exercise is following a specific method
- Start gradually and be regular
- Set clear and specific goals:
- Establish a regular workout routine that suits your schedule and preferences
- Incorporating exercises or physical activities that you genuinely enjoy
How to acquire daily habits?
Look at the following suggestions that will help you to get into the habit more easily.
Exercise first thing in the morning
It is very difficult for someone who is not used to exercising in the middle of the day, for example after work, you come home tired and now you have to get ready, go to the gym for example, and when you are done, you have to take a shower, prepare and return home and imagine that most of us have children, husband, wife, we also need time for them, so women need time to clean the house, make lunch, etc…, if you exercise late at night, it can disturb your sleep. Try to get up an hour earlier, do the exercises and then start all the other activities of the day, with much more energy, enthusiasm
Dread your target
For example, you can decide to exercise three times a week and stick to it. Measure your progress, which means there is a way to track progress, which could be recording the weights you lift or the distance you run each week. Be realistic, that is, that you can achieve the goal in the given time frame. You should also find your “why” in order to achieve the goal more easily. Trust yourself, meaning that the goal can have a specific deadline, whether it’s four weeks or six months.
And Toshe recommends adding emotions, that is, how you will feel when you reach your goal. Emotions will make your goals real, so pay attention to them too.
Instead of focusing on the big picture and feeling overwhelmed, break your goals down into smaller,,
The determination and the knowledge that we affect our health very well if we exercise regularly can definitely lead us to the disciplines of regular exercise. You must not let anyone or anything interfere with your decision to exercise. Some people consider this discipline as something that is mandatory and act like it (without much thought). Thus, consider exercise as a mandatory and important meeting (but this time a meeting with yourself). Also, if you pay for an individual class, you will also lose money by skipping classes. With Toshe’s fitness group, you will complete every workout, the team in the group cheers you on all the time so that you can get the most out of your body..
Changing the types of training and changing the environment
Exercise is not just about working out in the gym or gym. Keep in mind that you can do the exercises outdoors. So, outdoor areas, parks, beaches or your own backyard can be your environment for doing physical activity. You can also create a daily route for yourself and cycle or walk a certain distance. In this way you will change your daily routine if you always exercise in the same way and the daily dose of activity will be satisfied.
Avoid making sudden and drastic changes to your training routine.
Determine your time for physical activity
Many people work more efficiently if they have their own exact time for a particular activity. That way you can determine the exact time, ie. the period of the day when you are physically active. On the other hand, some people like to change that custom all the time. Try different options, analyze what you like best and find the ideal solution for you
Healthy sleep and nutrition
Lack of sleep, as well as poor quality and short sleep, lead to emotional fluctuations on a daily basis. This emotional instability has a knock-on effect on all the responsibilities you carry out throughout the day. It also depends on your readiness and efficiency for exercise. Of course, healthy sleep will help you exercise daily with greater desire and will, and a healthy and balanced diet full of vitamins and minerals will have the same effect.
Aim to maintain regular sleep and meal times to establish a routine.
Regardless of the type of workout you have, you can also customize the music to which you will do the workout. It is known that music is very effective and affects a person’s mood. In this way, you can increase your motivation and training efficiency. For example, it is known that yoga exercises are accompanied by relaxing music, while cardio or some dynamic exercises are accompanied by faster music. Customize the playlist for yourself and realize your quality training.
Making fitness a daily habit requires regularity, clear goals, and a routine that fits your lifestyle. Start gradually, find activities you enjoy and track your progress to stay motivated. Make fitness fun, find a partner to cheer you on, and celebrate your successes. Embrace flexibility and focus on long-term benefits. By incorporating these strategies into your fitness journey, you can establish a habit that promotes your overall health. Remember, small steps and consistent effort lead to significant results
