Someone told me last week, “I need YOU to motivate ME to exercise” Why? Why do you need ME to motivate YOU? If you can motivate yourself to get out of bed, do your daily routine of what ever, participate in all the things you LIKE to do then why do you need ME to motivate you?
Motivation is described as being the driving force by which humans achieve their goals. According to various theories, motivation may be rooted in a basic need to minimize physical pain and maximize pleasure, or it may include specific needs such as eating and resting, or achieving a desired goal. Based on the aforementioned the only person you need to motivate you is YOU.
STOP using motivation as an excuse not to exercise. I'm sure you have come up a multitude of reasons why you can't. The real reason is you don't want to put in the time, effort and dedication it takes to do it on a consistent basis. I know it's hard, however, anything worth having is worth working for. When you wanted a nice house,a car, that good job, your degree you put the time in to make it happen. Isn't your health just as important as all of those things? Besides what's the point of having all of those things if you can't enjoy them.
If you expect to live a lifestyle free from stress, pain,and numerous health problems you must adapt a healthy way of living. The combination of a healthy diet, exercise, and strength training will get you there. It will help you lose weight, look and feel better and erase those trips to the doctor's office. Get on board and motivate yourself into living a healthier lifestyle.
