The few days after January 1 are always an interesting time. Gyms are pretty busy. Many people are running around with their resolutions top of mind and of course wearing their new workout duds that they got for Christmas
(Look up enclothed cognition; it is a real thing).
Most of the people you see in the gym this month will likely be absent in February...
How do you plan to keep your fitness zeal and your 20/20 vision in 2020?
Here are 3 quick tips to helping you maintain your zeal and focus
- Embrace the chase. Understand fitness is a journey of discovering your body. Chase actions not side effects. Never chase weight loss. You will carry that weight with you.
- Be clear. Want what you want. Fitness is in part a mindset. You need a clear head to optimize your fitness plan. It is a must. Poor thoughts and emotions (being unclear) can stagnate your fitness goals. Even if we kill it in our workouts consistently we can slow progress by not being clear on what we truly want. This is why we set concrete fitness goals (the what, why, and how). It is the pathway to the end goal(s).
- Do it for the right reasons. When you want what you want and you choose what you want to chase then the rest sort of takes care of itself. Make it even easier by gravitating towards things that give you joy and energy. You are in full control here. Sure fitness can be tough and the process not so joyful at times, but you know that the ultimate joy comes post workout anyways, included is a great sense of accomplishment. Grit before gold.
If I could add one more thing to help you out...
Think about creating a mission bigger than yourself. It gives you a greater purpose and a greater purpose means a better impact and that makes you more valuable. Work your journey, tell your story along the way, and inspire others to do the same.
If you are stagnant or hitting a wall I will send an email shortly on how to navigate through it.
To keep you on track remember to chase the work that will get you to your desired outcomes!
