Maintaining a physically healthy life style is very beneficial although, something so easy to do is often seen as a struggle for many. I personally would consider my physical health to be satisfactory. It is believed when an individual is able to recognize their defaults change is able to arise. By identifying with the negative factors that hinder me from obtaining my optimal physical health I will be able to change.
Sticking to a regular exercise schedule isn’t easy especially as a college student. Considering I’m very motivated to lose weight I came up with several strategies to overcome the barriers I think I will face in the upcoming months. To overcome my laziness I plan to go to bed earlier so I can wake up earlier. By going to bed earlier I will have more energy throughout the day.
To conquer my stress and still be able to maintain a social life I’m going to manage my time more efficiently. If I wake up earlier everyday I can start my day with a morning workout. Regardless if it is only a half hour workout it’s still a workout I wouldn’t have done if I stayed in bed. If I’m unable to go in the morning I’m going to start keeping gym clothes and sneakers in my car that way after class I can go straight there. I need to stop making excuses for my behavior and simply get to the gym. I plan to make a schedule for myself that will include enough time for sleep, schoolwork, exercise and a social life. It’s natural to find exercise boring or grow weary of a repetitive workout day after day, but exercise doesn’t have to be boring. To make exercise more intriguing I’m going to start choosing activities I enjoy like kickboxing instead of just running on a treadmill. Personally, working out alone can be very boring so my roommate and I are going to coordinate and go together. Her and I will be able to encourage each other to get to the gym and work hard.
