The Five Minute Rule
It’s Saturday and I know you’re busy, so I’m going to keep this nice and short for you! I wanted to take a moment to share a super workout tip with you that has helped me out several different times! Are you ready to learn about the five minute rule?
When you’re not feeling up to working out, make a deal with yourself. That deal is simple and it’s this:
“You have to start this workout. If after five minutes, you’re still feeling bad then you have permission to quit.”
Seems so simple and counterproductive right? How is giving yourself permission to quit going to help? It gets you started on the workout and that’s sometimes the biggest obstacle you face. It’s very rare that I stop a workout after I’ve started it.
Next time you don’t feel like working out, give the five minute rule a try! It seems like it wouldn’t work, but you may just be surprised with the results!
Just remember this quick little thing to say to yourself…
