More than likely, because of this Coronavirus lockdown, your motivation to workout at home is less than your motivation to workout in the gym. At home you get distracted, others interrupt you, a program on TV takes away your attention. And there are many other commotions that get in the way.
If it is motivation plan
So what do you do?
How do you avoid those disruptions? How can you motivate yourself to workout regularly and correctly?
The key question to ask yourself is, How badly do you want to achieve your health and fitness goal?
How to motivate yourself to workout is simple. Answer that question. Think about it with focused intensity. See the goal that you want to achieve in your mind, and reiterate your goal and, more importantly, reiterate the reason why you want to achieve that goal.
The WHY possesses all the power to go after your goal until it is achieved – even if you are working out from home in this lockdown situation.
How much you want your goal determines the strength of your motivation.
It is that strength that will steadfastly motivate and drive you to fulfil your goal irrespective of any challenges, setbacks, oppositions, confrontations, distractions, interruptions, diversions, or anything else.
“Goal! What Goal?” was my honest answer. I had forgotten all about it. It was not what Bill wanted to hear.
“Think if my friend is Bill”
“You know, my goal is to get a toned, sculptured beach body,” Bill reminded me, with a deep sense of defeat and frustration echoing from his voice.
“Oh that. I thought you were kidding. We all figured you changed your mind since we don’t see you going to the gym anymore,” I replied, perhaps a little sarcastically.
So, what happened here? What happened to Bill’s drive? Where’s his motivation?
In the beginning, Bill was excited about his new goal of getting a firm and toned beach body as he put it. He was full of motivation and determination to achieve that goal. “I will get it no matter what,” were his last words to me. Hmmm.
