10 Ways To Make Working Out More Fun

There's a reason the masses see working out as an irritating and daunting task. Because if we're honest, it's just not fun y'all.

As much as we try to make it something it's not, in reality, for most people, working out is not where it's at. That's why there has to be so much motivation to do it. However, the fitness culture has proven to be more than just a trend as we work on not just having a slim waist and pretty face, but making the necessary moves to truly be healthy from the inside out.

Still, while that doesn't take away from the idea that working out isn't fun, that doesn't mean it can't be. It's really about being intentional that you're going to work out no matter what, so why not have a good time doing it? We've curated a list that will definitely have you looking forward to your workouts more and more:

Get Your Mind Right

Anything that we experience in a workout starts from within our minds. If you go into the session already waiting for it to be over or just not excited about it, it's going to be a lot harder for you to do your best. Before you know it, you'll be trying to get out of it before it even starts.

Even if you have to say things out loud as a self-affirmation or lie to yourself and say you're amped up about this workout, you might be surprised at how much more fun it can be.

As they say, create the change you want to see in this world, besties. That’s why xoNecole linked up with Hyundai for the inaugural ItGirl 100 List, a celebration of 100 Genzennial women who aren’t afraid to pull up their own seats to the table. Across regions and industries, these women embody the essence of discovering self-value through purpose, honey! They're fierce, they’re ultra-creative, and we know they make their cities proud.

Less & Less Of Us Have Close Friends These Days. Why Is That?

German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche once said, “It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.” At close to two decades of working with married couples, I agree with this man 1000 percent. It’s actually the main motivation for why I once penned, “Are You Sure You're Actually FRIENDS With Your Spouse?” because, the reality is, if you’re not friends with the person who you vowed to share every aspect of your life with, for the rest of your life, it’s going to be very difficult (if not damn near impossible) to honor that level of commitment. Without question, I will now and forever die on the hill that if you like your partner, you can make it through the not-so-in-love-right-now moments. Vice versa? Eh…not so much.
