Motivation may be hard to come by when it comes to staying or getting into good shape, As the
seasons change so does our motivation level. Holiday schedules and cold winter days
keep us from drudging up the motivation to maintain a daily exercise routine.
But we should be totally aware of the effects that inactivity has on the body, there are many resources available.
Exercise alone, without change in diet, can greatly reduce the risks for many diseases even in small amounts. Heart disease, stroke or diabetes are just a couple health affects of lack of activity in the body. Doing what ever you can to increase your motivation to exercise is the first step. Any variety of methods to motivate you will be of great importance. Listening to music while running, simply finding out the exercises that you truly enjoy, setting particular times when to exercise, all help you to stay motivated. Developing a routine or pattern for exercising is the best way to stay motivated; your body will become accustomed to working out at a certain time each and every day.
Your mind posses the ability to create positive ideas that leads to positive actions allowing you to live a healthy life. Positive self talk can do wonders for motivation as well as just
viewing the results of previous attempts (i.e.smaller jeans :), thinner waistline, six pack, etc). Self encouragement is the ultimate motivation.
