How to Break the Streak of Not Working Out

Sep 22, 2020

Do you feel like you are stuck in a rut, or finding it hard to stay consistent? If this is you, I’ve been there! In fact, I’m sure majority have! And most common reasons are related to not finding time for yourself, you’re too busy, or you’re feeling unmotivated.

But here is a quick and effective tip to help you break the streak of inactivity:

Roll out your mat, sett a 10-minute timer or press play on a 10-minute workout (LOTS on YouTube), and require nothing more of yourself than being on your mat for 10 minutes. That’s it.

No pressure to do a full workout. No pressure to feel high energy. No pressure to perform. Just me on your mat. Move, breathe, stretch.

When we go a while between physical activity, it can be easy to allow feelings of guilt to get in the way of starting back up again. And, please know how normal this is. You are most definitely not alone.

And it can feel like a huge deal to start over again and ‘get back on track’ but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Just break the streak.

Start small and keep taking baby steps day after day. week after week. And remember, you can use this trick to ‘break the streak’ as many times as you want to (no one is keeping score!). Many go full force when starting back up again, and lose motivation so quickly. Instead, remember this step and seriously take it little by little.

And remember, you’re amazing and SO worth it. Keep moving forward! I am in your corner cheering you on, girl! Xo
