PREP YOUR GEAR
When time is tight, you don’t want to be searching through your laundry hamper for your favourite pair of sports socks. Make a habit of preparing your gear the night before, and you’ll find it that much easier to slip into activewear when it’s time to work out. Decide which activity you want to do, and make sure you’ve got all the gear (water bottle included!) ready to go.
What it might look like…
- If you’re working out indoors, you’ll have less gear to prepare; but, don’t forget the details! Think head-to-toe, so you don’t leave anything out - hair elastic, top, bottoms, socks, water bottle, etc.
- If you’re heading outside, you’ll have a few more items to think of. The head-to-toe rule works here too: hat, neck warmer, layers for top and bottom, winter socks, winter footwear and gloves (do NOT forget the gloves!).
- Laying out your clothes the night before can also help solidify your commitment to get the workout in. You’ve taken the time to prep for it, so you have no excuse not to get it done.
