Tips for keeping motivated to move

Tips for keeping motivated to move

  • Work out as a family. Exercising together will not only enable you to motivate each other but will reduce the chance of distraction from having to tend to the needs of little ones.
  • Schedule time to exercise. Try to make this the same time each day and ensure that the whole family knows that this is ‘exercise time.’
  • Collate a ripper playlist. Great music makes all the difference!
  • Dress for the occasion. Changing into comfortable workout clothes and shoes will help put you in the right headspace for exercise.
  • Track your progress.
  • Reward yourself. Set yourself a simple, achievable goal and choose a (non-food related) reward.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
