Being fit: An easy habit to create (if you know how)
Success is not the result of a great action at a given time. Your success (or lack thereof) is reduced to your daily habits and decisions.
And it is precisely those daily decisions that create the only lasting change in your life. Here are 4 questions you can ask yourself – you must ask each day to be fit:
1. What decisions will I make today to be healthier?
Every day we make dozens of decisions that have a direct impact on our health. Start by paying attention to all those decisions.
Some examples: Do you practice exercise regularly? Have you added any type of exercise lately? You say no to unhealthy food from coworkers?
Do you plan the amount of fruit and vegetables you will eat a week? How do you structure your day to sleep at least 7 hours? Can you avoid eating fast food?
Quiet! Don’t get overwhelmed thinking about so many things. It all adds up. You can introduce these small changes gradually.
2. What excuses do I need to get rid of?
Do you blame stress for your excess weight? Lack of time? The weather? A couple who doesn’t want to exercise? Every time you blame someone or something you are not taking 100% responsibility for your life.
Once you decide to take full control of your life you can start changing it in a positive direction. Maybe your problem is that you postpone, avoid or are not really motivated.
You just have to choose a behavior that you think is holding you back and decide how you are going to change it. Today.
3. What habit should I focus on today?
Identify a habit you want to focus on and follow it. You can track your weight, the food you eat, the exercise you do every week.
4. What is my FOR WHAT?
You must look for the meaning of doing what you do. What do you want to be healthy and fit for? What motivates you?
We are all motivated by different things. And whatever that sense, you must find it to feed your motivation.
Paste it in a visible place to read it every day. Your results are a combination of your daily decisions so, what options will you take today to improve your tomorrow?
