If you are like nearly half the word’s population, then no doubt busy schedules and work and/or family commitments are keeping you hopping around. If so, then there’s also no doubt that you hardly have the time, energy or the motivation to try and live a healthier lifestyle; despite how much you want to do so. If you’re tired of not doing anything about your unhealthy lifestyle and want to do something about it posthaste, here are a few of our experts’ tips and suggestions for you…
Tell yourself all the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle
Motivating your heart to do something about your unhealthy living style is very important. Once you have convinced yourself of the importance of living a healthier life, you’ll find that it is much easier for you stick to your fitness training Hong Kong routine or even eating healthy and forming other healthy habits; like walking to work. Think of all the positives things that can start happening once you begin living more healthily for this.
Buy yourself encouraging, exciting and fun workout gear
To encourage yourself and motivate yourself further, consider buying yourself all the necessary gear before launching on a weight loss program. From workout clothes to new water bottles, your options are many. Likewise, you can also motivate yourself to eat better, by trying out new ingredients or even buying your kitchen newer equipment that can lead to a healthier eating pattern. Even a juice maker (for healthy smoothies) would work perfectly here. Visit http://hypoxi.com.hk/en/about
Have a motivating friend back you up
It’s not uncommon if you find yourself a little demotivated or discouraged at the beginning. More often that not, this happens when you can’t see the result of your hard work through your naked eyes. The best way to avoid this, is to workout together with a friend. Ask him/her to motivate you (and drag you bodily to the gym…!) when you don’t really feel like working out. Assure him/her that you’ll do the same when they are discouraged or demotivated.
Remind yourself what is at stake
If motivating yourself with the good things didn’t work for you, try the opposite. Try scaring yourself with all the possibilities that may happen if you don’t start living a healthier lifestyle. Think of you (future)spouse, your (future)children. Think of all the great clothes you’ll have to miss out on, and all the great opportunities you’ll have to miss out on. Think of how hard your retirement will be if you don’t take care of yourself. Trust us, this should motivate you right back to the gym…!
