As the temperature starts to drop our motivation can often take a hit. It’s important to keep your momentum going during the cooler months or it will be harder to get back on track come spring! Follow these three simple autumn tricks to stay motivated and achieve your wellness goals!
Mindfulness – A change of season is a good time to re-group, re-focus and set new goals. Recognise, reflect and appreciate what you have achieved (or perhaps didn’t quite get around to achieving during the summer months) and aim to kick new goals this autumn.
Accept and adapt – The harsh reality is that after autumn, comes winter… and not all of us love the winter months. It’s important to accept the colder weather and shorter days and adapt your exercise routine accordingly. Embrace the fact that your workouts will probably need to be indoors and try a home workout or join a new gym!
Early bird gets the worm – Incorporating an exercise routine is key when transitioning from warmer to colder months. As days get shorter and it becomes darker in the early evening, don’t leave your exercise until the evening and risk feeling demotivated. Get up early and workout in the crisp morning air. You will feel invigorated!
