I am the kind of person who needs to get my workout in early in the morning or I will get wrapped up in my work and never get around to finding that precious exercise time. I make it a point to workout daily during the week for an hour a day, and then find active activities to do with my husband on the weekends to make a complete routine for a healthy lifestyle.
I am the most motivated in the morning to check things off my to-do list, but working out carries extra motivation for me. I know that completing my workout will give me more energy, help me sleep better, and give me time to think about the day ahead.
That last benefit is where the boredom of similar workouts can come in handy. During the winter chill I enjoy working out to a variety of workout videos that I purchase on sites like Amazon. Even though I have quite the collection, I find myself using my favorite videos quite often.
At first I felt pangs of boredom doing the same movements over and over. At the same time I began to enjoy the repetition because I was able to focus more on my technique, and when I perfected that my mind was able to wander. Now I can anticipate the next move on the video so I often turn down the volume and let my mind crawl through my thoughts.
Working out this way has become like a meditation for me, and I look forward to the time to let my mind wander each morning. I still feel those pangs of boredom from time to time, but more often I find creativity and new ideas.
