Mental motivation for exercise

Mental motivation for exercise

Work. Family. Commuting. Chores. All the essential stuff leaves little time for working out. But what about you? Your health? Your enjoyment of life? If you’re fed up with always leaving yourself until last, it’s time for change.

So here’s some reminders of how to make your fitness and happiness a priority. Because your Hussle shouldn’t ever be a chore.

BE THANKFUL FOR YOUR BODY

Forget about what your body looks like. Instead, take five minutes to list all the ways your body has been good to you.

Has it healed itself from wounds and injuries? Supported you doing things you love doing? Allowed you to hug people you love, taste amazing food and experience laughter? Think what your body’s doing now and just say an appreciative ‘thank you’.  

EXERCISE AS CELEBRATION

Stop thinking about exercising as a way to burn off what you just ate. When you’re happy you will be active anyway. Not because you should but because you want to.

Build healthy relationships and good life habits. This gives your boosted “self” more power and energy. More energy to Hussle and celebrate your happy life.

GET OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

We should be continually pushing ourselves to be better. Trying something new, challenging and meaningful boosts our self-esteem. Try a new workout, sign up for a fitness event, or just eat some different food. It doesn’t have to be difficult, just keep gently pushing.

EAT RIGHT, FEEL RIGHT

A healthy outside starts on the inside. So ditch the rubbish food and fad diets and start feeding yourself properly. Go for fresh, wholegrain and unprocessed. A well-fed body will be desperate to Hussle!

BUILD YOUR MIND AS WELL AS YOUR MUSCLES

Building strength is more than just lifting weights. A strong character will make you powerful, caring and committed. Start each day with a positive thought, gratitude and determination to do your best. Remember being the best version of you doesn’t just happen in the gym!
