Motivation comes and goes, but having the ability to keep it can be a struggle sometimes. Having different reasons on how to motivate yourself is key. Planning, having goals and having the right mindset are some helpful things when it comes to motivation. For me, sometimes I can struggle too, but believe me every day counts and it is a day that takes you closer to your biggest goal.
There are many benefits that exercising regularly will bring you. Some of those are:
