Erin Yarwood helps us to shake off that post summer chill that’s lingering in the air and get active.
Do you find you struggle a little to keep momentum and motivation as the seasons change, especially when it starts getting a bit cooler?
You are not alone, most people do. You may stay in bed and hit snooze a few extra times, then miss your moment to work out before work.
As we move into the cooler months it gets darker earlier and all you feel like doing is slipping into some trackies and getting cosy for the night. Something to be wary of as doing this a few times can become a habit and not an easy one to be rid of.
Autumn seems to be a time when people can lose that spark to keep training, however it really is the best time to keep up all the hard work you’ve been putting in or it’s a perfect time to begin a new routine. Step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to reap the rewards and notice all of your hard work when the seasons change again.
It is definitely that time of the year when that beautiful early morning brightness (if you’re a crazy early riser like me) begins to lose its spark. Night time seems to stay around that little bit longer and true, it can be a whole lot harder to make that move to jump out of bed with a bounce in your step. Believe me…. I know!
I highly recommend you try to stick with your current workout routine if you have one. Otherwise, you may lose your momentum and ruin all of the hard work you put into during the warmer months.
Same goes if you like to get your workout in later in the day. To be honest, it’s so much more motivating working out when it’s cooler! Even though it may be harder to get going initially.
Don’t lose your groove… and make sure to MOVE!
If you find yourself umming and arghing on where to start your fitness journey, or just need that little extra motivation, have a look at Move Noosa. These guys are open 24/7 and offer many personalised training options, they even have a heated short course pool.
To keep yourself in check, I highly recommend that you find some time to sit down and write out some goals that you might have and strive to work towards them. Read them on a daily basis and reward yourself when you reach each goal. Having something sitting there in front of us can be that daily reminder that we need.
And before you know it, autumn will be gone, winter will have crept up and zoomed on by and it will be summer again! Then we’ll be complaining how hot it is and how we wished it was a bit cooler!!!
Live in the now.
And keep moving!
