You have a busy schedule.
It’s hard to make time for anything you want to do. Whether that be self-care, watching your favorite television shows, or working out.
You really want to start prioritizing exercise — but you don’t feel like you have the time. (welcome to the club)
Well, I’m here to clear that up for you.
Even though it may seem impossible and like there just isn’t enough time in the day — there is. Want to make daily work outs part of your routine? If there’s a will, there’s a way.
Here’s the thing — It’s all about mindset.
You may have heard this before — and that’s because it’s true. Your mindset is EVERYTHING.
If you wake up each morning dreading a work out or already looking for a way to avoid it, you’ll talk yourself out of it. You’re the decider of your life. If your mind isn’t truly in it, working out 6 days a week won’t happen.
You have to align yourself with your goals.
Why do you want to work out 6 days a week? How can you make it happen? Making a list of your goals and writing your “why” can help adjust your mindset.
Maybe you want to do it to feel better or to feel more energized? Do you want to kickstart weight loss? Want to do it to feel more accomplished each day? Whatever your want may be, you CAN make it happen —it all starts with your thoughts.
Waking up and telling yourself you don’t have enough time is getting in your own way. You have to believe you can do it and you have to make time for it. There is always time for a quick 10-minute workout, no matter how much you may argue against this. 10 minutes out of your entire 24-hour day is NOTHING.
The best part is, once you complete that 10 minute, 20 minute, or 30 minute workout, you will feel so much better. You will feel accomplished and that will reflect on your mood and attitude.
If you keep going to bed each night with the intention to workout in the morning and put it off right as the alarm clock goes off, then you’re just procrastinating. There’s a want to workout in the first place, so it’s just a matter of switching that mindset and getting up and doing it!
How To Change Your Mindset
I briefly mentioned writing down your goals — and this is a great way to start. Grab a journal and just brainstorm some reasons why you want to workout 6 days a week. You might come up with reasons you didn’t even realize were there in the first place.
Once you’ve come up with your reasons — it’s time to make a game plan. Take a look at your weekly schedule and find a place where a workout, however long or short you’d like, fits and then make it non-negotiable.
The first week you complete a 6 day workout with no skips, reward yourself. Treat yourself for doing something you didn’t think was possible at first and reflect on how it felt.
Then, repeat. Repeat the process until it becomes second nature.
When you switch your mindset, your whole world can change. From a new perspective, new motivations and reasons are found.
You CAN workout 6 days a week, if this is what you want to do. Your fitness goals are attainable, but it’s all up to you.
You can do it! Good luck!
