Today's #motivational tip comes from something I think we have all experienced (or know someone who has experienced this) when we first start our healthy lifestyle journey. I have also seen memes that make fun of people who earnestly want to make better lifestyle changes such as start going to the gym for exercise. Let me be the one to tell you, that isn't nice. Sadly, there will be people who may ridicule you for wanting to take the first step toward better health (the first step is always the hardest, remember that). Let them laugh while you get on your hustle, your grind. Next thing you know, the same people who made fun of you are going to ask you how you did it and how they can get like you! So don't let the haters get to you, they'll eventually become your followers 😉😉😉
Today's #motivational comes from taking the initiative toward better health and wellness. Sure, we can wish and dream of the body we desire to have, but what can wishing and dreaming do? Absolutely nothing! So, with talking the talk comes walking the walk. #invest in your health on a serious level. No one is asking you to sprint (unless you're into that 😉😉😉), working toward better health is like a marathon, not a race. Stop wishing and start doing the things that leads to your dream body or dream health status, and don't be discouraged, trust the process! 💪💪💪
Today's #motivation comes from wanting to change more than staying the same. Sure, we have comfort zones and stay with what we are familiar with, but how will you know what you are capable of if you stay where you are? This quote spoke to me at a time when I was afraid to take risks or even, start my wellness journey. Then, I became more obsessive about wanting to change, so much that the thought of staying where I was didn't do it for me anymore. No one is asking to make huge changes overnight, but it begins with something small and builds from there. 😉😉😉
Today's #motivational push is to not give up while on this journey. You can slow down, but don't give up! I can count the many times I wanted to stop or give up, but I realized that people were depending on me to be their example, their hope that they too get #motivated and start their #healthylifestyle change. Remember, the results are not going to happen overnight. Persistence and consistency will get you to your health goals! Don't give up! ❤❤❤
Today's #motivation is a straight up fact: Your health is an investment, not an expense! You have one body to live in, so take care of it! Every healthy habit or behavior you do is an investment toward better health, and your body will thank you!
Today's motivation involves the commitment and loyalty that you make to yourself while on your healthy lifestyle journey. You can become motivated to make healthier lifestyle choices and improve your overall health and well-being, and so you start putting it in motion. As with any mood, it can leave you but the willpower and commitment to continue the journey is really what makes or breaks you. Stay committed to a healthier lifestyle! Think about the idea of newfound strength, persistence, and consistency toward being a healthier you! It can be done!
Today's motivational comes from a very simple question that leads to the start of anyone's healthy lifestyle journey:
How bad do you want it?
I always had the belief that if you couldn't stop thinking about something, whether it was a goal you wanted to achieve or something you have been meaning to do for a while, then you act on it! The desire to live a healthier lifestyle is no different! How bad do you want to live healthier and feel good about it?
Today's motivational is probably one of the best things that I will ever tell you:
The best project that you'll ever work on is you!
This quote is so important while you are on your healthy lifestyle journey. Some people say that they are on this journey to fit in better clothes, or (in their mind) feel that they would be more accepted by others if they were smaller or more fit. Scratch that. Remember always that this journey is for you. You are the one who has to live in your body and it is a temple, so take care of that temple. 💪💪💪
Today's motivational is something that I consider a blessing while on my personal healthy lifestyle journey. I will admit, I used to view working out as a chore in the past, as if it was something that I had to do that day. As I am seeing results and feel a sense of excitement and joy working out now, I view it as a blessing that I am given the opportunity to workout each day. I am reminded that there are people who wish that they had the same opportunity to freely workout, something as simple as a walk in the park. I don't take this daily opportunity for granted, and neither should you! 😉😉😉
So, if you have the opportunity to workout, even if it is just for a few minutes, take that opportunity! 💪💪💪
For today's motivational, it is important to stress that while you are on your health and wellness journey, it is not about being perfect or achieving the "perfect body". It is about putting forth the effort toward being a healthier and better version of yourself. Today's society places too much emphasis on what is socially acceptable when it comes to appearance (e.g., rock hard abs, sculpt muscles, thinness, etc.). There is a difference between skinny and healthy. You can be thin, but not healthy.
Transformation comes from the genuine effort you put forth toward your health. The healthy eating, the workouts, all of it is part of the process. It is so rewarding when you come to a point and you can see your progress, and it further motivates you.
So keep it up, you got this! 💪💪💪
