How to Be Consistent – Make Healthy Change & Achieve Your Fitness Goals
Have you at any point in your life set the goal of getting in shape just to find yourself, after a long stressful day at work, carelessly eating potato chips and treats?
Your objective of getting thinner and eating well took a backseat to the chewy gooey sweetness or the crispy fresh crunch.
“What’s the deal! How do people change?ÔÇØ You wonder.
Better Question, ÔÇ£Why do people change?ÔÇØ
Logic seems like a good answer. We change because it makes sense to make an improvement. To quit doing damaging practices since they are well…destructive to our health.
Every one of our practices fills a need.
Think about that for a second…each of our practices fills a need.
Your main responsibility is to figure out what need those practices are filling.
Eating plentiful amounts of fruits and veggies is pretty good for us. Doing so helps us to be healthier, live longer, and in particular live longer disease free.
At that point the question emerges, why wonÔÇÖt some individuals eat them? The research is quite solid. The information is there, the logic is there. The proof is exceptionally clear and compelling…eating more vegetables may be the one generally accepted fact that 99% of the world agrees on.
So then, for what reason don’t more individuals do it? It’s sensible.
Stop for a second and let me know in the comments below. IÔÇÖll give you a few seconds.
On the off chance that individuals changed on rationale alone, nobody would smoke, drive under the influence, or rest under 4 hours per night. Logically, every one of those things increases the danger of us living with an awful life. Logic has its job, yet little for so many people, so most of us need something more deeper, something with feeling. IÔÇÖm talking about emotion.
Individuals need an emotionally charged motivation to change! Something that is deeper than the surface level goal “I need to lose 10 lbs.”
Why would you like to lose 10 lbs? What is your emotional, compelling motivation to lose weight or whatever else you want to achieve that is hard? Maybe, it’s to get rid of some love handles.
ÔÇó Why? So that you can fit into that dress you used to wear!
ÔÇó Why? So you can feel confident once more!
ÔÇó Why? So you can take your life back and quit covering up!
Now, weÔÇÖre getting someplace. This isn’t just about getting more fit or losing weight but about being confident in your skin. Shredding a few pounds is just a bit of that puzzle. If we continued digging we could probably discover even deeper reasons. This is the place where genuine change begins to happen.
So before you set after your goals, stop for a second and check whether you can discover an emotionally deep reason for your own personal change.
