When you need a little motivation for your fitness routine, you need look no further than your newsstand. Lining the walls of any bookstore, or magazine rack are plenty of selections that specialize in ways to get fit. The covers boast buff bodies that attract the reader to buy.
I enjoy looking through the magazines and reading others stories of success. Just flipping through the pages and admiring the toned torsos of these amazing athletes, let’s me know that if they can do it, then I can too.
Isn’t that what motivation is all about? I mean we know we have spectacular skills and abilities, sometimes all it takes is a little nudge to get us going. The difference in the way we feel when we take control over our lives is astounding and certainly worth nurturing. By this, I mean that we need to make sure we keep feeling this way.
That’s the feeling of confidence. We become confident in our ability to exercise control over our lives and that’s a good thing. Fitness isn’t just a phase but an important part of our everyday life. Just knowing that you are doing something to ward off illness and disease is enough to empower you.
Keeping to a fitness routine can sometimes be challenging. Daily woes and responsibilities spring up and threaten to deprive us of our special time for ourselves. It is important that you not let anything stand in your way, unless it is an emergency. Treat your workout time as importantly as you do your other duties.
The reward is ten-fold. Spending at least 30 minutes a day engaged in exercise will add numerous benefits to your body, mind and spirit. Just thinking about how good you will feel after your workout should be enough motivation for you to get going. The results of your dedication will be felt for years to come.
