I saw my cousin sister putting her toys back to her room after she finished playing with it. While adult teaches the kids to put things away after they are done, I myself do not actually follow such rule. I keep my gym bag and shoes close to the door where I get my house keys. I have been doing it since 4 years ago. The reason I do that is to ensure the bag and shoes are more visible so that I will more likely to pick them up to go a workout. Every time I want to go out, I will see the bag and shoes and I will tell myself not forget to work out for that particular day.
I have also seen people putting dumbbells close to the television set. During commercial breaks, they will do few sets of biceps curl. Of course, you can have the dumbbells in your kitchen too. While waiting for the coffee to brew, do few sets of lateral raises. So, instead of having weighing scale in the living room or bathroom, put something there you can exercise, like mat or medicine ball.
I don’t have dumbbells at home. So, to get over the “out of sight, out of mind” issue, I just make sure the gym bags and sport shoes are close to the main door – a trick which has been working well for me for the past 4 years.
How about you, do you do anything similar to get yourself exercise?
