Do It For You: Motivation to Live a Healthy Lifestyle
Last week, I sent out a newsletter on the importance of putting yourself first. I got such great feedback that I wanted to keep the momentum going on self-love.
It can be extremely hard to put ourselves first. It is even harder when it comes to working out and eating healthy since it really isn’t something that most of us enjoy. It is much easier to come up with an excuse to miss a workout, secretly eat cookies when no one is watching and lose total motivation once we step on the scale. However, there are things we can focus on to help us keep up with a healthy lifestyle.
It won’t be easy and there will be days that we will have internal struggles. The solution is to find our WHY. Why are you doing this? It has to be much deeper than just to lose weight. Perhaps it may be because you are sick of having low energy, not being able to fit into your clothes or because you want to have the energy to keep up with your kids. Whatever the reason is, you need to find your motivation and focus on it. When those tempting days of staying in bed or at home watching Netflix start calling your name, you can focus on your WHY.
Living a healthy lifestyle is the best choice a person can make. This choice doesn't come without its challenges though. Hopefully this post will help you view things in a different light and help in your efforts towards your health goals.
