Training is essential for your health and overall wellbeing. You do not have to lose out on your training because you are stuck at home. Try to implement these five tips to keep your training interesting while being at home.
Buddy up: Encourage your housemates or spouse to train with you. Exercise is more fun in a social setting and it allows individuals to push each other and spend quality time together.
Reward yourself: Do not make it all work and no play. Set small daily goals that offer a reward upon completion – whether it is a few hours of series binging or indulging in your favourite snack (in moderation, of course). This fine-tunes your mind to a “work first, reward later” mindset.
Turn up the volume: Exercising with music is more fun and some individuals feel more energised when training with a beat in the background. If you combine this with a training partner, you will have a small fitness party.
Download an app: Use an app to capture the calories you burned through your training each day and challenge yourself to beat that number every day. You can also use apps to share your workouts with other people or get advice on certain topics.
Get structured: Try to do some planning by asking yourself the following questions?
Where are you training?
Can you make a semi-permanent set up to use daily?
Which exercise plan are you going to follow?
Do you require any equipment?
Do you have a towel and water bottle? By answering these questions beforehand, you can save yourself a few frustrations once you get going.
