• Exercise Before Facebook

    What to do: For the next week, you can't check Facebook or your favorite website unless you did 15 minutes of exercise (a short walk if it's a rest day)

    Stuck in the Facebook trap? If you're someone who typically gets up and immediately runs to the computer to check the latest updates from all of your friends and acquaintances, you may want to rethink this habit.

    While Facebook can be a good way to connect with long-lost pals from time to time, most people will find that more often than not, it just sucks time from your day.

    Let's look at what this challenge is all about.

    Conditioning Yourself

    The very first reason for this challenge is to provide some positive reinforcement for something that right now you aren't especially fond of doing.

    Facebook is going to serve as the reinforcement as you already know that you enjoy it, while exercise is what you're trying to come to enjoy to a larger extent.

    By making a rule that you can go on to Facebook and spend 10 or 20 minutes (or however long you have) once you've completed a set time period of exercise, you'll get that reward in place.

    This gives you something to look forward to during exercise and in time, you'll come to hold exercise in a more positive light.

    Getting Started With A Positive Mindset

    The second reason for this challenge is to have a more positive mindset to start your day. If you place exercise before Facebooking and other tasks, you'll feel good knowing you've done something positive for your body.

    In addition to this, you'll also find you feel more energized and are thinking more clearly as you start your day with exercise now finished.

    Exercise does have a very strong impact on how you feel, so this challenge really makes the most out of that.

    Getting Priorities Straight

    Finally, the last reason for this challenge is to help you get your priorities straight. Most people waste hours per day on Facebook and other social media sites and these are hours that they could have spent doing something productive.

    By putting the more important elements of your life first, you'll gain appreciation for what really matters the most.

    In time you may find you spend more of your morning exercising and less Facebooking as well. It takes time to develop positive habits, but this small adjustment of using Facebook as a positive reinforcement for exercise is going to get you started.

    So set it your goal and start your day with exercise. Do this before you even turn on your computer.
