For those days when you just don't feel like exercising, you may need some unique ways to motivate yourself to workout. All of us have heard the obvious motivation tips like "remember how good it feels afterwards" or "remind yourself of how good you'll look," but often those aren't enough to get us going. I find that I am the most successful when staying on track to exercise by using these unique ways to motivate yourself to workout! Most likely because they deal more with clever rewards and incentives which I enjoy!
1. TV Show Incentive
This first tip for unique ways to motivate yourself to workout is especially helpful if you have a Netflix or Hulu subscription that allows you access to full seasons of TV shows. Promise yourself that you will only watch new episodes of a specific TV show you've been watching (or wanting to watch) if you workout. You can even promise yourself to only watch new episodes of your favorite TV show while you're at the gym in order to motivate yourself to workout even longer then normal.
