022: How to Start (or Restart) a Workout HabitFeb 08, 2018
We've all been there before. Whether we are at the start of our fitness journey or we have fallen off the wagon, we all have been faced with trying to start or restart a healthy habit. We know we need to exercise, but how do we make it a normal part of our day that we don't even have to think about?
Enter in The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. This latest read explains the science behind habit formation, so we take that information and apply it to starting a workout habit.
In this episode we talk about:
- How to create a habit
- The 3 main components of habit formation, what is known as the habit loop
- What you need to trigger a new habit
- How to reinforce that behavior to turn it into a habit
- Ideas for common triggers and reinforcements
- What to do if you fall out of a habit and want to restart
- How to troubleshoot and change a bad habit
- And lots more!
We think you will really like the real world application of these concepts, not only for running and exercising, but for other areas of your life as well!
Have a great week!
Sorry we missed releasing an episode last week. With the flu, Kevin lost his voice, so we had to skip a week when real life got in the way. :( We will do our best to prevent that from happening again!
