Your workout mood can be dampened in a flash especially if you exercise often. When you develop a sour attitude that refuses to go away, try these tips to improve your mood:

Create a pre-workout routine

You can start a new routine before your workout. Arrange your sneakers and workout clothes in the evening so you’ll see them in the morning. Try a new playlist and take a healthy drink to boost your mood.

Use the buddy system

Another common and effective technique that improves your mood instantly is the buddy system. It is also an excellent way to stay accountable. You can opt for a different activity like boxing or tennis that require two players at a time, if you don’t have friends for this activity, join a local running club, take a fitness class, find a decent sports league, start a conversation with someone at your gym and hit it off.

Make some changes

If you have a workout slump, changing your program will do a lot of good. Even though you have a targeted program, you can take a break or mix it up a bit. Play football, volleyball or tennis instead of lifting weights. This may be what you need to clear your head. It can also benefit you because your body will not adapt to the exercises and you’ll see more progress.
