Everyone knows the struggle of staring at the gym as you walk past it, trying to remember the last time you actually entered inside and did a workout. But why is finding the motivation to workout so hard?
After all, going to the gym has all sorts of benefits and perks, you may have just forgotten since it's been so long since you've dared to walk inside. But fear not, because I'm here to remind you why you should go to the gym today.

6. You don't have to worry because not everyone is staring at you
I know it can feel like everyone's eyes are on you when you're at the gym, which is a major reason to skip a workout. But I promise, no one else at the gym is worried about you. They're just doing what they have to do like you are.

I swear this is true. Hate drinking water? You'll love drinking it while you're working out.

Maybe you aren't feeling the best about yourself right now, but working out can do wonders for your self esteem, so hopefully you'll feel confident in that cute outfit sometime soon.
11. You can take a day off soon, just not today
Contrary to public belief, you do not need to workout every single day. In reality, your body needs a day of rest so your muscles can recuperate and continue to grow. So just keep reminding yourself that you get a break in a few days.
