How?

  •  KISS ( Keep it simple stupid)
  •  Start with exercise that is stupidly small,easy and simple
  •  Always, exercise after emotional trigger or the cue( stress, boredom, anxiety, or right after you wake up, right after work, before or after you brush your teeth and etc.)
  • Reward yourself with something nice( simple as apple, water, a healthy smoothie, or more elaborated such as toss 1 euro into a jar after every workout
  •   Fill up your water bottle and put your running shoes
  •   Try 2 minutes rule(  exercise no more then 2 minutes at the time, you not allowed to exercise more)
  •   Develop a ritual and a habit( repeat it all over again, make it your routine, automatic, autopilot)
  •   Set positive mindset and intention  fill in this sentence and put it on your wall....... Next week I will exercise on DAY, at TIME  and place, in PLACE
  •  Focus on the habit and not the goal( Do not say I want to loose 10 kg, say I want to exercise every day for the next 30 days, but no more then 2 minutes per workout)
  •  Get a logbook and write down your goals, plans and dreams
