What is motivation? 🧐🤔
Well I’ve learnt it comes in waves it isn’t a set thing that someone has.
A lot of people have motivation in January to get healthier or fitter and they go all out. Strict diet, no alcohol, no chocolate and go to the gym everyday!
This is an extreme and often leads to bingeing or burning out. The motivation then slides and people fall back into to familiar old habits. 🙈
Instead of wishing to be more motivated, or using the new year, or a holiday as an excuse to get fit or healthier, start incorporating small changes it into your life now. 🙂😯
🚴🏼♀️Exercise once per week doing something you enjoy from now until Xmas. It’s better than nothing!
🥗Introduce healthier foods into your diet. Adding more fruit or veg to your plate for example.
🍫🙅🏻♀️Cut back on treats, alcohol or chocolate a few times per week.
Slowly making gradual changes will form habits and habits are what stick and is better than waiting for motivation to arrive. 😴😑
When January arrives you will have already kick started and will feel better! ☺️💪🏻 You can then increase the number of days you exercise or choose healthier foods to eat.
Don’t punish yourself in January it’s not nice and doesn’t work..FACT!
