The problem is not usually lack of money, time or energy, although we will use these as excuses. The problem more often then not when we don’t reach our goals, it is because the motivation is not there. So here are tips to help you get ore motivated.
Make a Commitment
Set mini goals to help you reach your big goal. If you want to lose 20 lbs. For every 5 lbs you lose treat yourself to something you really want. Try to stay away from food items or splurge triggers, but rather a nice new blouse. Or a cool scarf you’ve been eyeing. Setting incentives will help you feel more connected to your goal.
Supportive Style
Line up your troops and tell everyone you know about you goal. Don’t hold details back either. The more transparent you are with your significant other and family members the more easily they can help you. Whether you need an extra boost for motivation to finish a workout or some mental support when you get frustrated in the process they will be there to help you make the most out of it.
Personalize your Goal
Make sure you implement your own goal by making it personal. Everyone has their own style and way of doing things. If you hire a coach and their approach is different then yours make sure to tell them. Try their moves but implement your own style. That way you will be more likely to stick with the program.
Put Your Health First
If you have a health goal it is important to focus your energy towards reaching it. But don’t forget about your other health habits. Make sure you are still brushing your teeth, flossing, washing your hair and taking care of yourself. Sometimes people get so caught up in their routine that they forget to do the basics. When you eat better foods you feel better and when you feel better you smile more. People who smile are usually happier than people who stress out a lot. Of you want more motivation then start with a smile. Smile more and make the most out of your day by focusing on these easy to implement tips.
