For me when I can’t motivate myself I go on long walks outside in my neighborhood. I live in a city so I like walking to coffee shops so I have a destination.

Honestly your excitement about coffee shops and walking brightens my day.

Start slow- even 20 min is good! And do something you actually enjoy so it’s fun. Sometimes lifting helps too to get you started

You’re right, I’m sure I can commit to 20 minutes/day to start, and stop after that if I’m feeling tired. Ill do a light weights session today as you suggested!

This may sound silly, but there are certain shows I watch when I work out, so sometimes I even look forward to (dread the workout but want to watch tv). Of course this cannot be done with every type of workout.

Definitely recommend!! It’s a lot darker but so good.
