The easiest and quickest way to change your mood, shift anxiety and feel more confident is through moving our bodies. We become stronger and more resilient so that when challenges come our way, we are better prepared and ready to step up. That’s where a good gym workout is important. When I’m looking for a gym-workout, I need it to be quick (I don’t have all day) yet still target all the wobbly bits – wink-wink. Here is one I designed that meets all those needs, it’s also now yours.
The next step to getting back out of the comforts of home and into the gym is to feel good in your skin. I mean gyms have all those mirrors, I love to have activewear that makes me feel strong and motivated. One of my favourite brands is Gym-Secrets. Not only is she an Aussie mum who totally understands the need to feel strong and great about yourself, but she also makes matching activewear for you and your little workout buddy. Head over here to check out her beautiful, body-loving work-out gear.
So now we have our workout all planned. We are wearing workout gear that makes us feel amazing. What’s next? Motivation. I use two tools to motivate my butt into gear. The first is a kick-arse music playlist (check out Spotify for some motivational playlists) and a pep-talk.
My pep talk normally involves me affirming how amazing I will feel on the other side of the workout and I also remind myself that I choose to feel “Strong, Powerful, Confident and Sexy” and for me, that’s exactly how I feel after hitting the gym or moving my body.
I’d love to know how you motivate yourself to get going or the type of workouts you love. If you’re looking for bodyweight workouts check out other blogs over on www.fireflylifecoaching.com.au, hope to catch you moving soon – Ang x
