We all know we should be exercising. But for many people, finding the motivation to exercise, and the ongoing motivation to make it a habit, is extremely difficult.
For a while now I’ve been paying attention to what the people who are successful do in their pursuit of health, and what the people who aren’t successful don’t do. And there is one major distinction.
That distinction is in how they start their journey. The ones who get off to a good start are far, far more likely to not only be successful, but to integrate exercise into their life long-term.
Getting motivated is often considered a difficult thing. But it is merely a basic human state. I think some people think that other people are always motivated and they are just not that sort of person. But in actual fact, motivation is just a basic human state that we all experience. It may be that you just don’t experience it with regards to exercise.
To foster motivation for exercise, you must first establish enough pleasure to doing so and enough pain to not doing so. Look for types of physical activities that you enjoy and do more of them. Be kind to yourself and take small, easy steps. Look for the next most actionable step you can take along your journey. Don’t try to rush it and certainly don’t compare yourself to others. You are exactly where you need to be right now. Decide what you want that inspires you; I mean, really inspires you, and work towards that. Enjoy!
