Everyone has a dream when it comes to losing weight. This dream could be to look good in a swimsuit, be able to run faster than they can walk, and even be able to jump higher than they can normally manage. Everyone has a reason for wanting to lose weight, and it could be any one of the above.
Now, if your dream is to run a marathon or be able to jump higher than you can normally manage, a few tips might help you accomplish that goal, which is based on science and psychology.
1. Focus on the small things, that’s right, not the large things.
If you wanted to lose 10 pounds in two weeks and focus all of your attention on that, you would most likely not reach your goal. That’s because we tend to look at huge goals as the most important. But if you focused on the small things that needed to be done, you would realize that losing 10 pounds in two weeks was not as important as that you kept from gaining the 10 pounds back.
This type of mentality is important because if you do not focus on the small things as opposed to the large things, you will notice that you tend to lose those 10 pounds much faster.
2. You will notice small, yet very important things that you might not even notice if you did not have a goal in mind.
Another important tip is that you need to notice small things, but not make them a big deal. This is because most of us tend to get upset and make things worse when we have a mental block. By avoiding small issues, you tend to make the small issues even more severe. But if you know you need to do something, you need to do it.
3. Do not make this a trend.
If you have your running shoes on, do not run or do a certain exercise routine. In order to get your running shoes on, you need to have your running shoes on. This means that you need to focus on the small things and remember that it takes time to build muscle memory. When you focus on that you tend to take care of the big issues.
This would mean that you focus on the little things that you need to do so that when you start running, you start running and keep running. Keep doing this, and you will get your shoes on. It will take some time to build muscle memory, so when you run your running, do not make it your goal. It is just a way to let your body enjoy running for that matter because the feeling is priceless. When you start running, find other things that you need to concentrate on that are a lot easier and more pleasurable.
You need to remember that it takes a long time to build the habit that you need to run. If you can do the above three tips, you will start running without any problem and you will become addicted to it.
Exercise is a way to relax
Another tip is that you need to remember that exercise is a way to relax. When you feel stressed, angry, bored, you can lose it and train. This can make you feel more uncomfortable that you need to relieve it with other means. Remember, you are just trying to loosen up and become happy. If you forget this point, you will not know when you are stressed and need to work out. Remember that all the thoughts of running, are just thoughts that you need to let go of and focus on other things.
A way that you can do it takes your iPod, a CD with relaxing tracks, and play it when you get stressed and feel irritated. The same thing you are doing is just to let go of the stress that you need to relax. When you are not stressed, you need to think of the small things and get your running shoes on. Remember that running is just a way to relax and when you are relaxed you will feel much more comfortable and you will like it. Take your iPod, or CD and sing happy songs or some relaxing tracks.
If you have never run before, get a trainer and start by jogging for 10 minutes, 10 times, and then keep jogging for 2 minutes and do it all again, this is a guide, you will need to increase it when you are running more and your body gets used to running.
Keep running even when you are being anxious
Also keep running even when you are being anxious, remember to breathe, when you are anxious you will need to maintain your pace, it takes a while to get used to the running pace.
The second step is to do a plank, and continue this for 3 minutes. You will notice that your knees will feel sore after the first day, but it is just the nature of practicing yoga poses. Do this for 3 minutes and this is the start of a new hobby, you do not need to worry about doing pushups. If you are worried about it, go ahead and practice them first, if you are still worried, then do some pushups instead, you will get used to them really quickly. Do a minute a day and watch your progress.
The third step is you will feel that your body is really tiring when you start to hurt. You will need to do some stretching and breathing exercises, keep running and pushups will help you maintain your effort. Just do the same as the second step and you will be running, running, running.
Take care of your body and you will experience a whole new world, just as I have. You will look younger and you will be healthier. You will have to get your mind right to take advantage of all benefits of yoga. You will love the benefits of running. Running is definitely one of the best ways to avoid and minimize stress.
Need to have a plan
As you begin to run you will need to have a plan. Your plan should include getting into a running jacket and gloves and some basic food items. As you do yoga poses and keep your heart rate up keep running. Over time you can build up to at least 2 miles for your first time, with practice you can increase this to 3 miles. Run as fast as you can. For the first month, you will need to run just once a day for 30 to 45 minutes. If you get into your routine it will not be too tough to add one or two miles a day. A day in my book is from 8am to 9am, for the rest of the day is from 11am to 3pm. Run as much as possible.
Yoga helps reduce stress and helps bring harmony to your thoughts and body. By adding running daily for one month you will get all the benefits of yoga plus a whole new world of health. As you run you will feel healthy, balanced, peaceful, and very motivated to keep running. You will also feel your body getting stronger.
If you want to keep running in the first month try and get into a routine for one day in the morning. As you do this you will notice that your body will start to feel lighter. You will also notice that your body gets stronger and will not have the “crash” diet afterward. This is how to use yoga to keep running in the first month.
