Take baby steps and set smaller and more realistic goals while building the routine. For example, in the initial days, stick to only light jogging or walking, that’s it! And when your body becomes a little bit habitual you may increase the intensity of the workouts.

Grab your partner, friend, colleague, or anyone from your family and do your workouts together! You can be a lone warrior but remember it takes an army to win the battle! So social support from teamwork will help you to stick to your routine.

Reward yourself

It can be anything like a cheat day! Or go do a little shopping and buy yourself a nice dress! You have worked hard to achieve this so dress confidently 😊. You deserve this!
