Here are the exclusive 6 best ways to find the motivation to exercise and restore energy to your life!

How many New Year’s resolutions did you break in February after promising yourself an exercise program to start exercising?

There are many reasons why you can’t keep your promises, and you will learn 6 ways to find the motivation to get back on track and start exercising again.

1. Combine exercise with fun

When you hear the word “exercise,” chances are your mind will label it a painful experience. Especially if you practice it irregularly.

You see, as humans we are wired to seek comfort and avoid pain.[1] at any cost.

Therefore, when you expose your body to the stress of exercise, you will quickly call it a painful experience, especially if you don’t make a habit of it or set underlying goals in your exercise regimen.

Fortunately, your mind can choose what gives you pleasure and it all comes down to associating your purpose with a purpose and positive emotion.

Usually people start exercising without knowing the emotional reason for it.

“I want to lose weight and exercise.” Sure, but why do you want to lose weight?

Maybe because you want to feel good or feel strong and healthy in your own body.

Feel those feelings well.

All you need to do is set and maintain a strong underlying positive goal behind your exercise routine and your mind will start registering the positive feelings of your vision every time you exercise.

Like any habit, the more positive feelings you have about the goal you want to achieve, the more results you will see.

Every time you work out, your mind masks the pain by putting your fitness goal first, making exercise more fun.

Clearly set, define and feel your ultimate fitness goal and your mind itself will motivate you as you program it to reach your goal.

2. Find what you like

You might think of exercise as running on a treadmill for 30 minutes to an hour, three times a week, until you’re covered and dripping with sweat.

Let’s face it, the treadmill isn’t exactly the most exciting exercise.

Economical? Absolutely, but I don’t blame you for lacking constant motivation if you feel like you’re running in a hamster wheel.

Well, that’s some people’s cup of tea, and if so, great! But if that’s not your thing, there are plenty of other options to choose from.

It’s important that you love what you’re doing if you want to find the physical motivation to get started.

Your problem may be that you are simply not aware of the different ways your body can train.

For starters, exercise should be fun. If not, you are limiting yourself to the wrong activity.

There are literally hundreds of different sports and exercises to choose from. Try exploring different fitness paths until you find a few activities you enjoy the most.

3. Find a responsible partner

It’s easy to miss or skip a workout when the only person you’re accountable to is yourself.

Chances are you won’t get up at 6am to exercise on a cold, rainy day if you’re comfortable in bed and prone to laziness.

Why ? Because we are conditioned to avoid pain when nothing challenges us.

This is where a responsible partner or personal trainer can help you with your workouts. You see, in general there is something that irritates most people when they disappoint or displease others.

If you’re determined to be there and someone is expecting you, you don’t want to apologize for sleeping in.

What motivates you to exercise?

4. Find a role model

Physical fitness can be difficult to maintain over a long period of time, although many people can.

Whether you’re a newbie intimidated by the thought of getting started or a regular struggle to stay consistent, being a role model can be your key to fitness motivation.

If there is a goal in life that you really want to achieve, chances are someone has successfully achieved it before.

Not exclusively, but mainly.

Modeling someone in terms of fitness, and thus ticking all the boxes of the goals you want to achieve, can inspire you to show yourself every day.

By adopting their successful daily habits and routines and applying them directly to your daily schedule, you may find the formula for success that will keep you motivated and get the results you want.

Often it’s not a lack of intention that hinders your fitness motivation, but a wrong strategy and ineffective results.

If you choose the right person and strategy and see consistent results on a regular basis, it is almost certain that your morale will improve and that you will continue to exercise.

5. Take stock of your diet

Yes, you always hear about foods that are good and bad for you and the need to try dozens of different diets to feel good.

While you don’t necessarily have to sign up for a strict restrictive diet at the same time as your exercise period, you should still monitor the foods you eat each day.

If you’re in the habit of snacking on Doritos and ordering junk food for dinner, chances are you’re not feeling good about yourself on a regular basis.

When you don’t feel good about your body, your self-esteem and energy levels typically drop to sub-optimal levels. This results in a decrease, or even a total loss of motivation to exercise.

Therefore, adding plenty of healthy, clean foods to your diet will signal the mitochondria in each of your cells to produce more energy.

You become healthier and more dynamic. As you feel better and lighter in body and mind, you will find the motivation for fitness much easier.

6. Mix it up

Have you ever noticed that we are creatures of habit?

You may want to impose a routine on yourself because you feel comfortable with what is familiar and familiar to you. It’s because deep down there’s something that scares you about uncertainty.

It’s normal, most people feel uncomfortable with uncertainty.[2]†

In fact, most of your daily habits follow a repetitive cycle, and your exercise routine is probably no exception.

When you get used to an activity like exercising, your mind quickly remembers it and activates the autopilot function every time you exercise. Therefore, you are unlikely to feel any new emotion or motivation.

And since emotions rule life, we must experience change and uncertainty in order to experience new positive emotions.

If you’re bored or unmotivated, it’s probably because of the lack of change in your exercise routine.

So try to mix up your weekly exercise habits. Once you’ve found the activities you enjoy doing, start incorporating a few into your week.

For example, if you usually jog for 30 minutes every day as a sport, try reducing it to 3 times a week and doing activities on other days such as strength training, swimming, and/or yoga, to name a few.

The choices are endless!

If you get tired of this routine after a few months, mix it up again. Change the order and frequency of your training program or change the program and exercises completely.

Choose what makes you want to experience change and newness in your routine.

To take off

There you have it, these six tools will help you improve your confidence and motivation to achieve consistent results.

Begin to see the pain of effort as a blessing to be able to generate and create something great. The joys of life and exercise cannot be cherished without a polar opposite to contrast and be thankful for.


Remember that it is perfectly normal to not feel like exercising most days and to throw in the towel. On the other hand, the motivation to do it and stay involved is 100% up to you.

So it’s time to take back control of your mindset and start feeling good again.
