With everyone, there comes a time where we start to see our gym sessions as a chore, we then skip workouts, progress slows and we feel pretty depressed about it all and go back to a few bad habits, we then feel really guilty and instead of getting back on the horse we sit and wonder why we stopped regretfully. – I for one am definitely that person, things come up an I am distracted from it all, and all the well earned progress stops.
So how do we get motivated?
One goal – It’s probably the most common mistake that people make: they try to take on too much, try to accomplish too many goals at once. You cannot maintain energy and focus (the two most important things in accomplishing a goal) if you are trying to do two or more goals at once.
Find inspiration – I personally find pictures of my ideal body and this helps me a lot, for some though this can be quite depressing or not very motivational. so find which works for you, there are many ways such as: quotes, pictures, success stories, blogs, and articles to help you stay focused.
Post your goal – writing your goal up in places where you will see it often can have a massive impact on your motivation by reminding you why you started etc. create lots of small cards with the goal on it and put them around the house, so when your feeling a little de-motivated you can see why you wanted to change.
