Why you should start working out today

If you know me or have been following me for a while, you know I am obsessed with working out, programming workouts and everything that surrounds it. Having said that, I might be a little bit biased here in saying that I believe everyone would benefit from starting their fitness journey today (if they haven’t already).

I know what you’re thinking; I don’t like going to the gym, I don’t have time to workout, I don’t want to get muscular. Let me tell you, starting your fitness journey isn’t limited to working out inside a gym, why not ride a bike or run or do yoga. You might tell yourself you don’t have time, but what happened to that half hour you were scrolling through Instagram? And what is up with the idea that stepping into a gym means getting muscular? How many people do you know that go to the gym who are insanely muscular? I am guessing that number is close to zero, because it’s not that simple.

Now that I have taken away the barriers you have put up for yourselves, let’s focus on why you SHOULD start working out today.

If not today, then when?

We have just entered a new year and a lot of us come up with these great resolutions but why are we waiting until the new year to start? If you haven’t started in these first couple weeks, when are you going to? Are you going to wait until the start of next month, or maybe the start of next year? Even if you’re waiting for Monday to come, why? When Monday comes around you will have another excuse not to. I know this sounds pessimistic but it’s reality for a lot of people out there.

The biggest reason I can come up with for you is to imagine, 6 months down the line, you’re much fitter, happier and healthier simply because you worked out for 30-60 minutes 3 or 4 (maybe 5) times a week. Isn’t that worth it? You can be that person who enjoys all those amazing things or you could be the person that wishes they started 6 months ago.

Releasing tension

Going back to my point that not everyone is working out to be muscular, there are so many people who workout just so they can release their daily stress, anxiety and tension. For this group of people their workout time becomes a necessity and an outlet rather than a 2 day a week thing.

Everyone has their own way of dealing with stress and tension, but if you haven’t found a good outlet yet, why not give working out a try?

A healthier body and mind

Do we even have to dive into why this point is important, especially right now, while the world is dealing with a global pandemic? Especially when it has been proven that a healthy body can at least minimize the damage done by covid-19 or any virus for that matter.

Not only does working out help fight and protect us from external factors trying to harm us,  but it builds a better and more capable body and mind in daily life. If you sit down all day long for work and then go sit down in front of the tv all night long your body will become lazy. What this translates into is your mind and body becoming lazy when it comes to things like being creative and performing difficult tasks. If you’re used to the stress a workout can put on the body, what do you think will happen to your daily tasks? Problems and tasks that come up in life won’t seem as daunting or challenging as they did before.
