Spending time working on your mindset is nearly as important as your fitness.

We spend more time thinking and weighing up decisions in life than we do on the training field or in the gym.

Here, we take a look at three ways we can improve our mindset and mental approach to exercise.

Outdoors

Dubai and Abu Dhabi have many parks and walking routes which are ideal to get out and unwind.

Surround yourself with people on walks or jogs to help you rub off from positive energy and keep your mind active.

Yoga is also a great outlet to help you slow down your breathing, increase your flexibility and meditate.

Keep moving forward

Many of us spend countless hours thinking about the past and some mistakes we’ve made along the way.

We shouldn’t regret the past because at that time of our life we were happy and that’s the reason why it’s important to focus on the present and keep moving forward.

Having a goal is the best way to progress and maintain your focus – whether it’s to run a marathon or join a sports club in a bid to make new friends and boost fitness.

Be grateful for your health and your current situation in life – and realise that what’s meant for you. Don’t let it pass you by.

New challenge

Motivate yourself to take up a new activity or hobby outside of work.

We often get bored from doing the same thing over and over again, so getting involved in a new sports club or fitness club will help you to have a different focus and distract your mind from the stresses of life.

Keeping the mind active is the best way to boost your overall health.
