Useful Tips to Stay Motivated in Summer
Summer is already here. However, with all these warm and cozy summer days, we find it really challenging to strike a balance between enjoyable and necessary things to do. There are so many opportunities for us: BBQ with friends or family, trips, vacations, tanning on the beach, and keeping fit. Nevertheless, we are frequently lost in this great abundance of things that we want to do. Therefore, I think that you might like to read a list of tips for staying motivated during the summer season.
Tips for staying motivated
#1. Start working out: find a friend who is also interested in keeping fit so that you could control and encourage one another to follow the regime.
#2. Take up some kind of “summer gratification therapy.” For example, buy a new pair of leggings or new sports shoes after you have attended some 15 or 20 sessions in the gym.
#3. Try to plan at least one trip this summer (even if it is a weekend getaway).
#4. If you cannot afford to attend a gym or a yoga studio, organize some training sessions on your own. Find some videos on YouTube and do your stretching or yoga classes somewhere in the garden/ park or any other locality outside.
#5. Keep a planner. I really recommend you to plan everything: create your daily/ weekly/ monthly to-do lists to keep track of your business and always know the precise time for some plans. All in all, learn how to manage your time.
#6. Instead of creating a brand-new list of goals, refresh your New Year’s resolutions that you made in January and start bringing them to life in June.
#7. Spend some time on Sunday evening and organize some plans for the next week. Make sure to include into your schedule some habitual things (as, for example, regular workouts or some music classes).
#8. Spend more time walking. As the weather gets warmer, use every chance to spend some time outdoors. Instead of taking public transport somewhere, go on foot or ride a bicycle.
#9. With all your work and self-development, do not forget about active social life. Have some time to spend with your friends.
#10. Try to maintain active lifestyle every day. Even if you miss your workout class, spend more time walking, dance in your room, walk your dog, etc. As you see, staying motivated may be easier than it seemed to you before. Enjoy your summer!
