Use Mindful Fitness Tips for a Better Workout
Mindfulness is a technique that you can use to make your workout more effective. When most people exercise, they don’t realize how closely associated the mind is with it. What you think and how you think can have a great impact on your workout. What’s your biggest issue?
Mindfulness can make a difference in whether you can stick with an exercise routine long enough for it to become a habit. When you practice mindfulness, it can help you to have a better workout because it lets you focus on the goal that you have at that moment.
One of the reasons that some people have an ineffective workout or give up working out completely is because they fail to keep the focus on the present. They look at where they want to be.
Any goal that’s in the future can seem a long way off. Instead of projecting where you want to be with your workout goals, it’s better to keep your mindset on what you’re experiencing at the time of your workout.
You should want to get better and be able to have more stamina and do more repetitions, but that should not be where your thoughts are.
Rather than concentrating on wanting to be able to make it to thirty reps in two weeks, mindfulness can help you keep focused on adding a few additional reps for that day.
More often than not, when people work out, they’re not even paying attention to what they’re doing.
They’re working out and listening to the conversation around them. Or they’re listening to music or watching the television.
These actions take away the focus from the working out.
By focusing, you increase your stamina and strengthen your mindset.
By using mindfulness to keep your thoughts on the present, you can teach yourself how to gain consistency.
A lack of consistency is one of the main reasons that people quit a workout routine
It’s easy to blow off exercising when you’re not practicing mindfulness. Using these tips can help you be mindful for a better workout.
When you’re exercising, think about how it feels to move your body.
Pay attention to the sensation of moving your arms and legs as you’re on the treadmill.
Picture the body weight going down and your strength rising.
Focus on your muscles as you’re working out and picture them lean and powerful.
Through each exercise that you do, choose one tense to focus on - such as what you can hear or feel.
Keep your mind focused on that sense only. This will help to keep you in the present.
For the times when you don’t feel like exercising, mindfulness can help keep you motivated.
