Physical Faith, Part 3: Motivation is not what you should hang your hat on when it comes to the nitty gritty of daily making healthier decisions. You have to go further because even if you have the best reason in the world to take care of your body motivation is, as we all know, a fickle mistress. So we must move from motivation to something more dependable, something that is going to stick around even when we don’t want it there. What we need are habits.
Physical Faith, Part 2: Whenever we need to make a major change in our life, like to eat healthier or start exercising, finding our motivation is the place to start. I would imagine if you are reading this post it is because you have already decided that something needs to change for you. That is great! A huge first step! But your second step needs to be figuring out your true motivation behind that desire to change. There has to be a why, and that why has to be all your own. It will be that thing that brings you back to your goals whenever you fall off the wagon, so it needs to be very personal and incredibly important to you. Sometimes finding it, that true motivation, will take some digging. So, today I would like to try to help you find your why, and then present you with another why that might just make it to the top of your list.
