Tips for successfully integrating sport into everyday student life
It doesn’t have to be a daily 3 km run. If you’re not motivated, start with a walk around the block. You will find that even small exercise sessions can make a long-term difference to your wellbeing.
If you have to force yourself to exercise, you may end up having stress. Therefore: Do the sport that you enjoy and find ways to motivate yourself to do so until the motivation comes on by itself.
Make it easy for yourself
With a quick search on Google or YouTube, you will find countless fitness videos that invite you to a workout in your dormitory after it has been cleaned up by cleaning services. Whether cardio, dancing or stomach, legs, and buttocks: there is something for everyone.
Develop a routine
In general, routines, rituals, and habits can help to relax everyday life a little more. If your life is already well planned, it will not be difficult for you to integrate exercise into this routine.
In a group, there are many more opportunities for sports that are difficult to do alone. Meet once a week for soccer, volleyball, or other sports, or go to the gym together. In this way, sport becomes a much nicer experience and you stay motivated.
Set yourself a goal
Sport can help you with motivation to set smaller lines or challenges for yourself. Be it that you need x minutes for a kilometer in 6 weeks or you want to be able to hold a plank longer. At the latest when the first progress can be seen, the motivation to exercise will come naturally.
