Finding Motivation for Health and Fitness

When it comes to our health and fitness, it’s an uphill battle for many of us. With all of the many vices like junk food and passive entertainment, the world is killing us with kindness, and these threats to our health are often seemingly innocuous. With such invisible threats, how can we be expected to fight? And, yet, we must. Health is an important facet of life, and poor health is a poorer quality of life. So, we owe it to ourselves to lead the healthiest lives possible so that we can lead the happiest lives possible. However, that’s easier said than done. Luckily for you, I’m here to help. Here are a few tips to help you find the motivation and willpower to take control of your health.

First and foremost, let’s talk about fitness. Exercise is something of a dirty word for many of us, and for good reason. (Sort of.) Exercise is a chore, plain and simple, but we need to do it. In a world in which we spend so much of time sitting, at work, at home, and in transit, of course we’re out of shape. But, exercise is tedious and boring, so what can we do? Well, the big problem with exercise is motivation and willpower. With these two things, success is just a matter of time. One way to get motivated is to reward yourself for your successes. For instance, take this Guess coupon and buy yourself a stylish new outfit, but buy it in a smaller size. Use this is a tangible manifestation of your goal, as well as your reward for completing that objective. This way, you can always measure your progress against the reward that’s waiting around the corner, and seeing it every day is sure to light a fire in you that will prime you for success.

Likewise, when it comes to your diet, you can use rewards to motivate yourself. For instance, many diets prohibit whole swathes of delicious and popular food items, so why not give yourself a cheat day every so often where you can eat of the forbidden, carb heavy fruit as a reward for all your hard work?
