Why Can’t I Stay Motivated?

Have you ever wondered why it is often so easy to just sit on your bum, rather than get up and move your body?

Or why is it so hard to eat healthy – all the time?

You are not alone!

Most of the people we work with said the same thing when they first started with us. The reason they had come to Ignition Health was because they hadn’t made their health a priority, and their bodies were telling them that something had to change!

Here are 3 important steps that they used to successfully achieved their goals.

1) They got crystal clear about what it is you want to achieve.
‘Get Fitter’ or “To Look Better” is a good start, but how will you know if you are fitter? Or if you look better?
What does your end result really look and feel like?
What images come to mind if you were happy with your body, and your health right now?

2) They discovered their motivating reason for wanting those results.
If you are feeling unmotivated to work to work towards the above results,
then it’s your reasons for wanting those results that aren’t driving you to work towards them.
Find a more motivating purpose!
For some it’s their family, kids, relationships.
Find out what’s important to you, then relate your goals to those aspects of your life.

3) They Found Support 
Surround yourself with people who build you up, show you the way, and get you through the tough times of your journey. Your mental and physical health is often the sum of the people you surround yourself with.
A new you may mean a new positive support network.
