How to Exercise Regularly

Posted on April 29th, 2012

First, think of yourself exercising and answer each of the following questions by providing minimum 3 answers:

  1. What will happen if you will NOT exercise regularly or at all?

  2. What will happen if you will start exercising regularly?

  3. What will NOT happen if you will start exercising regularly?

4.What will NOT happen if you will NOT start exercising regularly?

The first question helps you to clarify the consequences of you not exercising. The second question helps you to understand the benefits of regular exercising. The third question helps you reveal your secondary gains of not exercising. The fourth question makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

How to Exercise Regularly

  1. Think of a habit you have and do every single day such as brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Notice the submodalities (see the list below) 1.

  2. Think of exercising regularly. Notice the submodalities.

  3. Think of how awful it will feel to be overweight, lazy, lethargic, and unfit. Attach this to the thought of not exercising.

  4. Think of how you will feel if you do exercise regularly and how good it will be to look great and feel great.

  5. Take the image of you exercising and move it out and back into the image of you engaging in the habit that you do every day.

Do this a few times quickly as you attach the good feeling. Do it until exercising feels like second nature to you.
