How To: 12 Life Hacks to Incorporate More Exercise into Your Life

12 Life Hacks to Incorporate More Exercise into Your Life

Would you exercise more if you were constantly running from zombies in a post-apocalyptic world where hundreds of people are depending on you to not get eaten? If your answer is yes, then you really need to snap out of your sedentary lifestyle ASAP and install the Zombies, Run! app on your smartphone.

Not scared of zombies? Maybe you're more scared of the social embarrassment of signing up for a 5K run and not going through with it—even after telling all your family and friends about it.

If you don't like the idea of using fear as a motivator to get your butt moving, use fun as a carrot stick to get yourself off the couch and over to your local gym. Listen to your favorite podcasts and audiobooks only when you're engaging in physical activity, and do exercises that require no gym equipment while watching your favorite TV shows.

Some things I use to re-motivate myself to workout when I do not feel like it.

  • Make it publicly known that I am slacking so friends will stay on me to do it.
  • Setup a reward system and be honest about it. If there is something you want or want to do, make it your personal reward for working out.
  • Don't think about it, just do it. Like Nike says.
  • Set a small goal, even if it is just to do n pushups and crunches. Use that success as motivation to do more tomorrow.
  • YouTube, there are tons of motivational videos on YouTube.
  • Use a social media site to track your exercises. Knowing others are watching and rooting for you can be motivation enough.

These are all great tips. Thanks for sharing!
