We can get distracted with our workouts due to so many external stimuli--worries about work, school, what our co-worker said. In order to maximize your time and potential results with your work outs... be PRESENT! It is crucial so you don’t mindlessly go through the motions and receive lackluster results from your exercise routine.
“Living a healthy lifestyle isn’t a destination, it is a journey.”
The search for the easiest/fastest way to be healthy may have you always trying short-term fads and never making long-term gains. The reality is that maintaining weight loss and muscle gain takes time, hard work, and being uncomfortable. Developing NEW healthy habits will seemingly feel “easy” only after we have done it for a long time. What was then hard, now is easy.
So why constantly search for the easy way to do things, if the answer is to be patient with the “hard things”?
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.
Today I discuss how to reframe our beliefs and use them to break past our circumstances or physical limitations to become a healthier version of ourselves!
"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!
