Staying motivated to exercise can be challenging. Throw in a busy schedule, lack of time, days where we don’t feel 100% and regular exercise can slowly fall by the wayside for most of us. What happens next are feelings of laziness, lethargy, and a possible lack of energy.
Falling into a fitness “rut” isn’t something we usually plan to do, it just sometimes happens and can be attributed to many factors. Life throws a lot of curve balls at us and sometimes responding to them makes us feel like we have to take time away from some things to make room for others.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! Staying active can still be a part of your life even “jump-starting” your active lifestyle is something we all need to do from time to time.
In This Episode You Will Learn:
1). Our definition of the “Fitness Rut” and some of Meredith’s personal experiences in working with clients that encounter a fitness downturn.
2). How going through a fitness rut can affect you both mentally AND physically.
3). Some of the things that can potentially lead us into a fitness rut and some of the signs that may push us in that direction.
4). Some of Meredith’s best tips on how getting back to basic “movement” and moving around in any form can slowly help you back to being physically active.
5). Why it’s OK to sometimes feel like you’re in a slump and that it happens to everyone. What’s important is to always stay focused on getting back to being physically active when you feel like you’ve hit a wall and to not give up!
