We are living in the age of inactivity. How much time are you are wasting in front of a screen? What are you usually doing while you are in front of a screen? You are probably sitting and eating. Physical inactivity has its price tags and it is linked to the development of various diseases. It can make us feel bad about ourselves. Do you observe someone around you who have more energy, stamina, and an overall healthier lifestyle than others? This is the type of person we should strive to be. But how to become them?
Set the timer of your smart watch or phone to remind you to exercise hourly. The routine is up to you, it can be a mix of push-ups, planks and curls. This is the best way to get your blood circulating. You can exercise anywhere, don’t feel weird to do push-ups at the airport. The best form of exercise is to simply run. Run early in the morning. It is amazing what benefits this will bring and how good it will feel. If you only do one form of exercise other than running, planking is the one you should do. If you can’t hold the pose for 50 seconds, you may be prone to serious health problems. Stand while you work, purchase a standing workstation and refuse to sit down at work.
Drinking more water will instantly give you more energy, you will feel drained and fatigued if you are dehydrated. Get quality sleep in order to stay awake longer and have more energy. Stop worrying about things that do not matter. If you worry about too many things or try to spend your day pleasing everyone else but yourself, then you will lose energy. You will fail to get sleep and you will spend your entire day with low stamina. Why waste energy worrying when you can use the same energy to visualize success? Get a theme song, listening to music will provide you an instant energy boost. Try creating playlists for each mood you would like to put yourself in. Go outside often, you will be amazed at the energy boost by simply going outside.
Here are all the hints. Do or do not, the choice is up to you. But there is no try. The process will be challenging, but by breaking the challenges into smaller parts, they will be less overwhelming. In the end, you have to want it. You have to be willing to work hard and suffer some short-term pain.
Suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret.
