6 Ways To Get Back In Shape
This week is National Obesity Awareness week and typically at this time of year many of us (myself included) are looking to either lose weight or get in shape. However, with the weather being traditionally cold at this time of year it can be difficult to even motivate yourself to get out of bed, let alone be healthy. In this post I'll be sharing my tips that will help you on your journey to a healthier you.
Find your motivation
Work out what motivates you, it may be your children, it could be that dress you always wanted to get into or maybe you have a holiday coming up? Whatever, it is use that as your motivation as that is going to go a long way to helping you achieve your goal. Put images, words or watch videos that revivify your motivator everywhere. I strongly believe the more positive motivation you have around you the easier your goals become to achieve.
My personal motivation is my children, so I have pictures of them next to my alarm clock so that my motivator is the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see before I go to bed at night.
By getting active I don't mean you have to start hitting the gym or working out like Mr. Motivator (although if spandex is your thing, then who am I to stop you?). Make subtle changes to your normal day, the best way to commit to something is to make it a habit and the easiest way to do this is to set SMART targets.
