So boredom? Yes I believe that is true but you can think about that another way, since you have time it gives you something constructive to do that will make you feel good later on both mentally and physically.
Yes sometimes it's hard to recognize if the efforts are paying off. That is why it's good to have very short-term goals and long-term goals. Just doing the activity can be the short-term goal, and having faith that that activity will eventually help you to reach your long-term goal.
First, set goals. Both short-term and long-term ones short-term can be the exact activity that you want to do on a daily basis, but also it can be something like not wanting to feel like your muscles are tight and cramping up, or the ability to get out of the chair a little easier. These are things that you might notice early on in an exercise program so it is important to be mindful and pay attention to how you're feeling.
My second tip for staying motivated is to make it fun. It's hard to look forward to something we don't enjoy. So pick exercises that feel good and that you don't mind doing. Remember there are many exercises so not one of them is absolutely essential.
Tip number three, make physical activity part of your daily routine. This would include things like taking the stairs instead of the elevator, Park a little further away from the store. Even household chores and yard work are included in this.
I agree, and the fact that you're listening to your body is a great thing. You want to feel better and get healthier not feel worse. Nothing is set in stone, all human movement is subject to paying attention to how we feel and modifying as we need to.
Not getting enough rest? Yes it's hard sometimes for various reasons. Daily exercise, settling down a little earlier than we want to actually go to sleep, minimizing electronics at bedtime, keeping the room dark and cool, and some deep breathing exercises or meditation is helpful in getting a good night's sleep
