There’s nothing harder than breaking yourself out of a workout slump—or any kind of slump, for that matter. Momentum is an extremely powerful force, and it works both negatively and positively. For this reason, it can be especially difficult to pull yourself back into an exercise routine when you haven’t done it for quite some time. Nevertheless, here are some tips that may help.

Break The Routine In Other Ways

Right now, the issue is that you’re stuck in a bad routine. While it may be hard to break that routine from a fitness perspective, perhaps try breaking the routine in other ways. For instance, if you’re not someone who normally cooks your own food, try making a few meals yourself. By shaking up the routine in other ways, you may be influenced to break the workout slump as well.

Ask For Accountability

One of the biggest reasons you’re unable to break yourself out of your workout slump is that there isn’t anyone holding you accountable for it. However, if you ask a friend, family member, or even a personal trainer to hold you accountable, they’ll ensure that you snap out of it. It’ll be hard in the beginning, but they’ll help you change up your routine for the better.
