Motivation Problems: Try a Few of These Solutions

By Stephen R. Farris

When it comes to working out, staying focused and motivated is not always an easy task to achieve. Let's face it, we live in a fast-paced world these days. The days of a 9-5 career have all but disappeared. We work longer hours, stay up later, and our eating habits are constantly changing. It's enough to make you give up sometimes, but we have to continue to find ways to keep that focus and motivation at the forefront of our lives, especially if we want to keep and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

So what can be done to head us in that direction? 

Believe it or not, there are a number of things you can do to stay focused and motivated. You just need to make a few minor adjustments. I know, it sounds easy on paper, but it's much harder to do in real life. Yes, to a degree, but let's take a look at a few to see if there's something that might help you out.

Find a Partner

Working out with a friend, co-worker or in a group has been proven by research to help keep folks more motivated and focused. Find someone with the same interests and possibly the same goals as you have. 

Download an Exercise App

Technology can be a good thing when it comes to exercise. There are a ton of apps available that can help remind you when to exercise, as well as give you tips and even a pep talk. It's worth a shot, especially if you work out at home or alone.

Lunch and Breaks

The weather's bad and there's no way you feel like working out on days like this. But hey, not all is lost. It might not be what you're used to, but taking 10 to 15 minutes of your lunchtime to walk around the office or do a few crunches can be very beneficial. Even on your morning and afternoon breaks, you can do exercises such as push-ups, or keep a couple of barbells in your desk and work your arms and shoulders. Even if the weather is good, this can still be sort of your backup plan if you're feeling time constraints.

And if aches and pains are causing you to feel less focused and motivated, talk with your local chiropractor to hear some of the tips and suggestions they can offer, plus they can probably help you get some relief for those other ailments as well.
