Struggling with Motivation at Home.. We can help
“I just don’t have the motivation at home.” We’ve heard this alot.
That’s ok. Because you don’t need motivation at home. Does it help? Sure. But it’s not required.
You just need a daily schedule, a daily plan, a daily discipline, a daily course of action… whatever you want to call it, you need it, especially when motivation is lacking.
About a year ago, at a team meeting, I told the coaches about a comment I heard someone say in the lines of “well, it’s easy for the coaches to work out.” So, I went around the table and asked every coach if it’s easy for them to workout. Every single one of them said “no.”
And that’s the truth. It’s just as hard for us to be motivated, to stay disciplined, to just get off the couch and “get it in.” It’s not easier for coaches because they are coaches or more fit or more motivated or more disciplined. That’s a myth.
So, how do they do it?
Set your schedule and take it one item at a time.
It doesn’t have to be by the minute. It doesn’t have to be filled back to back to back. I just needs to have a rhythm, a flow that is set up to not overwhelm you.
Personally, pre-corona, my mornings would be scheduled wout, Working out first thing in the morning because, working out helps get me into the right envery for the day, for other people, it doesn’t.
But, things have changed so I needed to change my daily schedule.
I could wake up early and workout but I know in times of stress, my mind is more important than my fitness so the FIRST thing I do in is have time with myself and a cup of coffee.
Then i wait until lunch to do my workout, Do I enjoy it? I enjoy the workout, I don’t enjoy doing it at lunch time but it’s what needs to be done right now.
It’s on my schedule. It’s an item to check off. It’s something that I know I need and want to do during this time of crisis.
If YOU need help creating a rhythm, a daily schedule, reach out to your coach for help. They can be your accountability buddy or find another member to join the zoom classes with.
Put your workout on your CALENDAR. Make it what I call an NFN… Non, F*%k’n Negotiable.
You all are used to driving to the gym, being there an hour (maybe longer if your in my class:) and driving home.
Now, you just have to log in 5 mins early and knock out 40 mins and that’s it.
No motivation required… just log in. You got this.
