It’s not easy staying motivated to live a healthy lifestyle. It’s a lot easier to sit on the couch with a book or my iPhone and play games. I know that’s not what I need to feel good about myself so I try to find healthy lifestyle motivation ideas that will keep me on track like these.
- Pay attention to what you eat and how much water you drink. I keep a journal where I write down what I’ve eaten and how much water I’ve had that day. It really motivates me to see the good choices that I’m making. If you’re more of a digital kind of person, there are a lot of great apps that do the same thing.
- Splurge on little extras. I’m not a big fan of drinking water but I love my water bottle. When I exercise, I like wearing stylish athletic clothes. I have much more motivation to exercise when I feel good about what I’m wearing.
- Make simple daily changes. Changing everything about your life overnight is difficult. It’s easier to make little changes slowly. I’ve noticed a difference when I cut out processed foods, add more fruits and vegetables to my diet, and get outside for 15 minutes a day for a walk. I’m always motivated by my little successes.
- Be aware of what’s holding you back and deal with it.
