How To Increase Your Physical Activity

physical activity

Well, let’s face it…we’ve all been there. We’ve all had our lazy days, weeks, months.. when everything seems more important than working out.

According to WHO’s (World Health Organization) recommendations, each and every single one of us should workout at least 150 minutes per week and for a number of reasons.

Numerous studies point of to hundreds and hundreds of benefits related to working out but we’ve chosen to point out the most obvious one – the feeling when you actually do something good for yourself and your body. Science has  proven that when working out a variety of chemicals and neurotransmitters are released into our body that make us happy, content, fulfilled, and give us “the high” we all need to make the most out of the hectic days, and endless to-do lists.

Other key benefits related to regular workouts are: improved function of the cardiovascular and respiratory system, increased strength and energy levels, much easier weight control and control of the insulin levels, improved mental health and cognitive abilities, and of course we can’t forget the physical appearance and that gorgeous booty you’ll get by pushing yourself out of the comfort zone.

By now, you do know how important working out is, so we’ll get to our suggestions about how to actually increase your physical activity.

Start small, start one workout at a time

This is by far the most important advice we could give.

Wondering why?

Well, in most cases when we start working out, we all want results now. We want that smoking hot body, run 10 miles without stopping, do countless squats, push-ups, pull-ups until we’re dripping sweat and can’t go no more.

In order to do this we put this enormous pressure on ourselves, work out five times a week, count calories, cut our favorite chocolate, pasta, and treats and ultimately this gets us nowhere because we can’t take it. It’s not living life to the fullest, it’s surviving. So, we quit and feel like a disappointment.

So, next time, do things the other way around. Take in consideration the free time you have, set realistic goals both about your nutrition and working out, and start there. This way you will avoid the loop of disappointing yourself and will be a step closer to living a happier and more fulfilled life.

The small habits

Besides creating your working out schedule, make sure you also create this numerous healthy habits that will make your fitness journey much easier.

For example, instead of taking the elevator – try and take the steps; instead of using public transportation or your car – choose to walk or bike to work; instead of sitting for 8 hours straight – try to stand up, do some light stretches, walk around the block; why not even get yourself a dog – this way you’ll have to go out with it.

These are just basic examples to get your mind going. Look at the current habits and start there. Think outside the box and start changing your life for the better.

Consistency and dedication rather than motivation

Motivation is what will get you going but dedication is what will keep you going, and do notice the difference because there is a huge one.

Of course you’ll have super difficult days when all you’ll want to do is watch Netflix and eat chips and dips (and such days are also important too), but if that happens too often then something is off right?

On such days, make sure you seek for the “why" deeper inside.

Why you are on this journey? Why you want to exercise?

You’ll find some days are easier or more difficult than others but bottom line what matters most is to show up for yourself. Bo matter the day, no matter the mood, no matter how good or bad you feel the workout was or will be.

Simply be your own best friend, and threat yourself with kindness and love.
