7 Hacks To Get You Moving

Don't you find it hard to get your body to move?

Feeling sluggish carrying around that extra load on your body? Well, you are not alone.

Early this year, I realised ALL my pants were extremely tight - to the point where I need to unbutton when I sit down just so that I can breathe better.

It didn't help that everything just go downhill the moment you hit the big FOUR ZERO and so, between changing my entire wardrobe and devising a workout routine, I decided to go for the hard route and challenged myself to move more.

Despite my height and deceiving lanky frame, I have never been athletic. I have always been known to be the one with two left foot. I only play badminton and swim. I detest ball games because I am a ball magnet. In a bad way.

Finally, after a period of trial and error, I found some hacks that work for me and this is what I will be sharing in this post.

In another upcoming post, I will be sharing the resources I have found over the years that work really well for my current exercise routine. I hope these will be useful for you in some ways or another.

This is in no way to say that I have "reached" the point of being totally disciplined! I am still a work in progress and my mind need a lot of persuasion in order to get my body moving.

Let's get started, shall we?


Hack #1

You only need to take the FIRST step. Nothing else.

That makes it sound achievable, right?

And you take the step so that you HONOUR yourself. If you fulfill promises made to others, why break the promises you made to yourself?

One of my favourite first step is the next hack.

Hack #2

Prepare your workout clothes (if any), water bottle, shoes etc the night before.
