So we all know law students are the “most uptight” bunch of all right? WRONG. But assuming we are… all we need is a little workout session to de-stress ourselves.
Here are some motivational quotes from amazing people to get your lazy butt on that treadmill:
“I’m not going to lie, there are many days where I’m super lazy and unmotivated. What helps me get started is by eating healthy first and then doing a workout. That in turn makes me want to eat healthy again because of all the hard work and time I put into myself. Do you see how it goes on in a positive cycle? Suck it up now, so you don’t have to suck it in later!”
“The most important thing I learned with being an ex-professional dancer and being in a full time ballet school from when I was 14 years old to 18 years old, is consistency. Our bodies have muscle memory and I was always told that if I did intense workouts for a few weeks only to stop and pick it up again after a few weeks, my muscles will lose its kinaesthetic intelligence. Essentially, every time you start working out again, it’s like you’re back to square one! My biggest motivation? I don’t want to go back to square one! It’s too much hard work.”
“I played all kinds of sports at school so it has carried over into my adult life, I think starting your active life young will automatically become your motivation. I also get people around me to challenge me to get active. For example, I’ll make a date with my husband to go to the gym and we will both be motivated to make sure we keep the date.”
Short and sweet: “For me, mixing workouts like boxing, jump rope, and basic ballet works best”
“I cherish my workouts. They recharge me mentally and physically so I do my best to prioritise them, even if it’s a quick sweat in a hotel gym with hand weights and stretch bands. Nothing is better than working up a good sweat to keep that balance.”
“To keep motivated I find that alternating work outs and mixing interval, low and high intensity training really helps. I love to mix in Pilates and fun dance classes too.”
And…that’s a wrap to all you amazing people up there, now GET OFF, GET OFF this screen and get your lazy bum to the treadmill!!! I repeat, this is NOT A DRILL.
