I’ve been working out like a maniac lately (like 7 days a week) because I have a very specific goal in mind. I’m turning 40 on September 18th and I want to have my fittest and healthiest body yet when I enter the big 4-0.
I know it’s just a number and I always say that we’re all heading in the same direction so there’s not point in resisting it but it also makes me want to live my life to the fullest and be my best self every day.
That means working out even on days where I’m unmotivated.
The reason I’m posting the above is because it is a trick that I’ve found quite effective on those days where I’m just dragging my feet.

Another technique that helps me a lot is always scheduling my workout in my calendar, setting a reminder and including a few cute emoticons to motivate me.

Being active is hugely important to be healthy + happy in my book because this temple that we live in must be in tip top shape for us to do all that we love.
