If you want to get fit or stay fit, then you need a good motivator — a primary reason why you want to exercise, eat right, and live a healthy lifestyle.
I talk to people about this all the time. We all have powerful, compelling reasons why we lift weights, run, swim, take yoga, ride bikes, and more. Here are just a few of the most universal:
- Maintaining a healthy weight/body composition
- Enjoying sports, hobbies and playing with kids
- Social interaction
- Maintaining physical and mental health
- Treatment of chronic pain or conditions
- Better quality of life
Do any of those strike a chord with you?
Any reason is a good reason. Heck, you don’t even have to have one. But many people like to remind themselves of their primary driver. It can give you a boost when you’re not feeling motivated. And it can guide your choices about how to spend your time and energy.
The next time you say to yourself, “Why do I even bother doing this…” remember the power of your very own WHY. It can save you from eating foods that aren’t in alignment with your goals, skipping workouts, & even quitting altogether.
Remember, those who achieve GREAT things aren’t motivated all the time…or even most of the time. But their WHY is more important than their comfort.
You can create that for yourself too, my friend.
I’m here for you…just comment.
