Before searching what is the best nutrition or weight lifting program, we should look at who we surround ourselves with first. If we don’t check environmental/social factors, then the “best programs” won’t be utilized to its fullest due to the possible negative influences of our surroundings.

Is who you are stopping you from who you want to become?
We often believe our circumstances or our physical limitations are what stops us from living a healthier life. “I don’t have time to workout”, “I have other responsibilities to take care of”, “I don’t have the energy”. Regardless if those things are real barriers, it ultimately comes down to what we choose to believe.

"Logic makes people think. Emotion makes them act."
We like to think that logic will motivate us into action. Health thoughts like “working out decreases the chances of injury” or “eating healthy will decrease heart disease”. However, if that were the case then why aren't we all living a healthier life. I mean those things make logical sense, right?
Today I discuss our negative emotional attachment to working out and how we can turn that into a positive association so we can live a healthier life!
