Whether your ‘Why’ is to live a long life, to be active so you can play with your [future] kids and grandkids, to prevent future medical expenses, to feel your best and pursue what’s important to you in life rather than always struggle with health issues, or all of the above…
Regardless of what you identify as your “Why”, it is important you have one.
What drives you? What’s your reason behind going to the gym? Why would you even want to eat healthy? This simple viewpoint may be the missing piece to accomplishing those greater results.
If you do not know why you are doing something or even following steps toward better health, you are significantly limiting your potential and the possibility of achieving your goals.
Why speaks louder than the physical actions you tell yourself to take. When you tell yourself “eat a salad” or “go to the gym”, that simply isn’t enough.
Always keep in mind why you’re doing what you’re doing, and on the contrary why you’re not doing what you ought to be doing. Why are you eating unhealthy food? Why are you avoiding exercise?
These questions are super important to think about. Find your why and what you’re committed to; reflect on ultimate long-term goals and what you want to achieve; set up a plan to get there, no matter what it takes.
