Just. Do. It.

in fitness •  27 days ago

We all have days when we're not feeling it.

It's rare, but now and again I wake up on the wrong side of the bed and I just don't want to do ANYTHING. I'd much rather sit on my couch and watch TV all day than go to work, hit the gym, or tackle any of my other responsibilities.

When I don't have the luxury of indulging those desires to shut down and do nothing, or even if I could, I rely on some very simple things to get me through so I don't waste a whole day being unproductive and lazy.

One little thing that helps me is my favorite headband. It reminds me to stop my whining and get going! It's funny how things have a way of getting a lot easier once you start, and sometimes the simplest reminder to "just do it" is all that's needed.

Corny? Perhaps. But I am corny. You should know that by now :)

So friends - obey the headband.

Get out of your seat and get moving on the things you have to do, that are tough but worth it, or that you know will make you feel better once they're done!

Stop making excuses and make some progress instead. Chop chop! :)

Ps. To my pals at Nike - no copyright infringement intended here - just appreciating your product! Thanks for the push in the right direction!

What are your simple tricks for getting the lead out? :)

I relate to this post because recently (last saturday) I was feeling exactly like you described, bored, I didn't want to do anything, I spent all morning in my bed watching soccer then at 2pm I realized that I was wasting precious time and got up and went jogging for one hour, after my work out the feeling was great and made me happier than being all day doing nothing at home, like you well put it, I just had to go out and do it.

Oh nice, that's awesome!!! Well done, my friend :) You got the best of both worlds that day!

Eso nos demuestra que si le aplicamos dedicación a lo que hacemos podemos lograr los resultados que deseamos y tú eres el mejor ejemplo @annemariemay

¡Muchas gracias por decir eso, eres tan amable! Estoy totalmente de acuerdo contigo, la dedicación es la clave :)

I honestly love this post! So many people feel like this even on a daily basis. It can honestly be any day where you just do not want to get up and just starting the day off is the hardest part, but I always just say JUST DO IT or IT'S TIME or LET'S GO and it always does the trick. Great post!

Yes!!! I love it! Those are great little sayings too :) I love something simple and to the point that just kicks you in the butt enough to jump start your productivity! Thanks so much for commenting! :)

Motivation is not permanent, we can't have it everyday, but discipline is what difference us from the others and keeps us to still make progress.

I completely agree! What a smart point - I think it's super important to differentiate between motivation and discipline... Such a great concept, cheers! :)

Oh I had such a day yesterday 😕 would have been great to have your head band 😄

Awww! I wish I could've shared it with you! :) Here's to hoping today is a better day! 😽
