Today I would like to share with you my strategy on how to get myself exercise easily. The key is FOCUS and below are the 3 simple steps to follow.
- Find a type of exercise that you can enjoy (S1)
- Find an activity that you like and can do during exercise (S2)
- Change the meaning and focus of the exercise session (S3)
As for me, I will have a 30 minutes bouncing exercise (S1) on the mini trampoline daily. During the exercise, I will listen to my favorite music from my iPod and daydreaming (S2). And I am telling myself the 30 minutes session that I am going to spend my time on is to listening to music and daydreaming (S3). During the session, while I am bouncing on the mini trampoline, my focus is on listening to nice music and daydreaming. My focus point now is I am doing something pleasureable.
With this simple change of meaning and FOCUS, I don’t feel any pain in exercising. The point is, if we focus on the exercise then it makes us harder to continue the exercise as we are focusing either on an activity that we don’t like or the pain.
Have fun exercising.
