When it comes to making improvements to our health and fitness levels we all now WHAT we need to do. We know that we need to move more and eat better. The WHAT isn’t the problem. The thing that most people struggle with is the HOW. How do we go about making these changes and keeping ourselves motivated and committed to the changes that we are making?
So, I thought I’d share with you guys a few tips that have helped me stay motivated and committed to my long-term goals.
- Train in a way that you enjoy: You are more likely to be consistent and remain committed to a style of training you actually enjoy.
- Take it one step at a time: One of the main reasons people give up on their goals is because they try to do too much at once and become overwhelmed. Instead of trying to change everything at once,s pick one thing to focus on.
- Focus on building discipline: motivation is unreliable and dependant on your moods and feelings. By building discipline you give yourself the necessary tools to focus on what you need to do (in order to achieve your goals) especially when you don’t feel like doing it.
- Remember Why You Started: Make sure that the reason why you are embarking on your journey is strong. Your reason why will help you to keep disciplined and motivated on the harder days.
Hope you guys find these helpful.
