We all know that smoking and abuse of anything is bad, and running and leading a healthy lifestyle is good and good. Only here somehow it is not quite possible to live in accordance with this knowledge. That willpower is not enough, then time. Some complain that the desire to run in the mornings arose more than 5 years ago, but there was no strength for realization so far.
What to do? Work on yourself and strive for the best. For example, I am very lazy. Forcing myself to do something unpleasant is always hard for me, just unbearably hard. But having been engaged in introspection for many years, I found small loopholes that allow you to trick your own shortcomings. This helped me not only to start running in the morning, but also to do a whole bunch of other very useful, but insanely unpleasant things.
So, to start running, you need to understand what for it is necessary.
Running is a useful and natural thing. On the Internet just a lot of information on this topic. And we all are well aware of the benefits that this occupation will bring to our lives. But the problem is that this knowledge is abstract, not concrete. And, as is known, that which does not concern us personally, will never be the cause of any actions.
That is why you need to clearly understand why we need all these early rises, shortness of breath and other delights of morning runs. It is necessary to take a sheet of paper or a notebook and answer in detail the question. What exactly will the morning jogs give me? and what have to endure for this ?.
We listen to our biological rhythms
If you are a pronounced owl, do not mock yourself when you wake up at 5 am. For a long time your enthusiasm in such circumstances is not enough. 24 hours a day, nothing prevents you from choosing the most convenient time for physical exertion. You can run not only early in the morning, but closer to dinner, and in the evening. See your feelings.
Comfortable and beautiful clothes
Experimentally proven – comfortable clothing is not enough. The form should like. We are women and we want to always look beautiful, this is not going anywhere. No need to put on a baggy cloth, you are not a refugee from a third world country.
Buy a tracksuit that will really like. This applies to shoes and headgear. When you look good, everything you do is good too. Here is such a female correlation.
I prefer to run alone. Rest from people, communication, information sharing. But someone needs a company. If you think running alone is a boring procedure, you need to find a company. If familiar neighbors do not share your enthusiasm, try to find a companion through regional or district forums.
Gradual load craze
At first, I didn’t even run. The first few days just walked along the intended route, trodden it. Then she began to accelerate, but most of the route still took a quick step. And only after a few weeks was able to run all that was planned in one sitting. I think if I decided to run 2-3 kilometers on the first day, the desire to do it again would have disappeared once and for all.
The load must be able to dispense and gradually increase. Then the run will be not only useful, but also enjoyable.
7 days rule
To be honest, I am not very respectful towards NLP. But this particular exercise seems to me very correct and effective.
Agree with yourself that you will run exactly 7 days. This period will be enough to get used to a new lesson and understand whether you need it or not. If the result is positive, extend the period by another 7 days, and then another. And so on until running turns into a steady habit.
If the result of 7 days is negative, then perhaps running is not exactly what you need. Try cycling or fitness. Yes, there is little that can be invented to maintain a healthy mind in a healthy body.
