Between work commitments, family obligations and social events, it may seem daunting and downright impossible to add anything else to your plate. As a result, people tend to sacrifice the one thing they might enjoy doing the least, exercise. Perhaps it started with a busy week, and then one week turned into two and then before you knew it, you hadn’t visited the gym in a series of months. Whatever the obstacle, there are ways to pull yourself out of a workout rut and create a lasting routine.

According to Jonathan Leary, founder of Remedy Place, a social wellness club, “The thing about fitness is, you have to want it for yourself. Finding the motivation to get back to the gym and get healthy must come from within.”  And it’s not just about finding the motivation, but about having the right kind of motivation to get in shape. Forget external motivators like looking nice in an outfit and dig a little deeper.

When getting back into a fitness routine, you may be tempted to overhaul your eating habits too. Oftentimes, people tend to fixate on making too many changes at once, . Instead, focus on one thing at a time, Focus on just trying to re-establish an activity habit.

Just like those metered workouts, health professionals suggest slowly changing your nutrition patterns over time so you don’t feel overwhelmed and then give up out of frustration. But if you do want to make some changes to your diet,  start adding more water to your daily routine to ensure you’re hydrated as a first step.

The more active you are, the more you sweat, so replenishing your water levels will ensure your body isn’t depleted of key minerals, and in turn, can help you recover faster. If the gym is not a daily activity for you, there are other things you can do daily that will give you a great start to getting in shape, or increasing your heart-rate.
