It can be quite a daunting task to muster the motivation to get into shape given our hectic lifestyle. Everyone is so tied up in activities, like working for eight hours, commuting, household chores, etc., that there is little time to bother about health and fitness. In such a scenario, one needs a little motivation to overcome these limitations and hurdles.
Wake Up Early
The saying 'Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise ' is as relevant today as it was centuries before. By waking up early, you feel extremely energized throughout the day, as the highly oxygenated and fresh air empowers all the cells of your body. Therefore, sleep early, and wake up on time everyday.
Make Exercising Fun
Aerobics Pilates
You can make exercising fun by putting on some energetic music and getting into all fun, pumped up, and unconventional high energy aerobic-cum-calisthenic workout. Prefer to do those things that you love doing so that you are motivated to do them regularly.
Make it Convenient
Yoga class
If you are planning to join the gym or do yoga or aerobics, keep in mind the convenience factor. Choose a center that is close to your office or home, because it will increase the chances of you going regularly and bunking less.
Be Realistic

It is essential to set 'realistic' goals. Set obtainable and measurable goals, but they should be challenging enough to keep you at it. While trying to achieve quick results, you may end up doing more harm to your body than good. So, be careful.
Try Some Brainwashing
"You are what you think you are". It is very true, because you turn out to be the way you picturize yourself. Therefore, it is enormously important to have a positive frame of mind while exercising. You need to keep reminding yourself about the wonderful benefits (healthy and glowing skin) that you will obtain at the end of the workout.
Put up little stickers, which will explain the benefits of exercising and posters of people whom you idolize. Read success stories, get fitness magazines, and check out the Internet for the latest fitness equipment or workout.
Try Out Something New
Fitness Dance Class
Doing same workout over and over again can be boring. Spice it up by trying something you have never done before, like lessons in salsa, tap dancing, samba, or tennis. Do anything that breaks you out and is fun at the same time.
Make it Challenging
Outdoors Aerobics
Most of us like the challenge of competing and winning. There is nothing like getting together with a bunch of friends on the field, court, or the gym and indulging in some fun competition. To give it that extra edge, you can devise some fun prizes for the winners.
Bask in your Success
Car Trip
With every milestone you achieve in your fitness goals, reward yourself with something interesting like a short trip somewhere or a new outfit or haircut. These rewards give you the much-needed boost that you require while exercising.
Hopefully, the fitness tips will give you the much-needed impetus to push yourself towards obtaining a fit, healthy, and a well-shaped body. Apart from exercising, it is equally essential to watch your food intake to complement your workout regime.
