I want to go back and revisit a post from two years ago about consistency. Especially in these times, I think it's an important topic. We can all agree that when it comes to getting something down pat, to make something a habit, it's about consistency.
It's the Consistency Factor. And when we create a pattern, a pattern that is for our good, it'll take a whole lot to break us out of that pattern.
If you've always wanted to get into a workout routine, but felt that you didn't have the time, now is as good a time as ever to begin your pattern of working out.
Some tips on getting started: take it easy and keep it simple.
Don't try to workout every day of the week and jump to 1 hour workouts.
Start with 2 or 3 days and for 20-30 minutes for those days. All you're trying to do right now is to build a pattern, make it a habit.
Go for a walk a few days out of the week. It's a nice simple workout if you are just getting started with your workout journey.
For my intermediate and advanced readers, you can use some of the objects that are right in your home.
Place a chair behind you to do sets of squats. Walk up and down your stairs about 3 times. You'll be surprised how quick you feel the burn.
Working out can still happen. It's all about if you want to make it happen. And if you do, there is no magic pill, no drawn out secret, it's just a matter of consistency.
