Workout without even realising it!

There are numerous activities that you can do and won’t even feel like working out. Start with a calorie busting cleaning session maybe? All the lifting, moving, bending and picking up will result in the burning of calories. Exercise need not always be about lifting weights or running! You could also consider picking up something like Wii Sport and Wii Fit games. Have fun burning those calories!

Reward yourself with a brownie! (When brownie points just aren’t enough :3)

Put ₹10 in a jar for every workout you do. Use this money to treat yourself to a monthly meal out or buy a new piece of clothing.

Try out apps that could help

App stores are filled with apps that claim to help you stay focused. Use trial and error to find the app that works best for you and stick to it. Most of these apps can monitor your workout sessions and your diet! You also get tips, advices and regular reminders. We suggest you try HEADSPACE as a point to begin.

Maybe watch your favourite show if music doesn’t help? (We don’t judge… neither should you!)

If you’re someone who looks forward to reach home after work and start watching your series, try doing it in the gym! Instead of heading back from work and flopping onto the sofa to watch your favourite show, head to the gym and catch up while working out!

Sign up for an event. Maybe a marathon?
