Everyone goes through rough patches, or drops their efforts in the flip of a hat, undoing all their hard work and starting back at square one during their weightless journey. It's not easy or else everyone would be fit! The key here is to stay consistent and stay on track! So here on today's blog post, we are offering you 5 expert tips to help you stay on track on your fitness journey, or to reach any goal for that matter!
1. Commit: How bad do you want to reach your goal? You will have obstacles in your way during your journey and you must commit to facing and overcoming them. The higher your commitment, the better chance you have of reaching them! So tell yourself every morning that you are committed to achieving your goals and nothing will stop you!
2. Set a Clear Goal: One of the things that demotivates us is not setting a clear goal. This is because not knowing what you're striving for makes it easier to be more lenient. You may say I want to exercise more, but how much? Is one time a week more? Having a clear goal makes it easier and more motivational to understand that you are making progress! If your goal is to take a 30 minute walk every morning, you are able to track it. So set a clear short-term goal, and when you reach it, set another one! It will motivate you to keep going!
3.Challenge yourself: This is probably the most difficult tip to achieve because most people set unrealistic goals for themselves to achieve, and in turn cause them to give up. You know yourself best and you know what is a realistic challenge. When you set a challenging goal for yourself, and achieve it, it boosts your confidence and helps you to stay motivated! Human beings are motivated by success and you are more likely to stay on track. If you set challenges that you can do and achieve, you will feel excited to keep going!
4.Break down your goals: This goes in step with challenging yourself and setting your goals. The best thing to do is to break these tasks to the smallest level of achievement to sub-goals and give yourself enough time to complete them which will help them feel more attainable and will help keep you from giving up.
5.Feedback: Feedback is the best way to help you out on any journey in the sense that it boosts confidence, if you are willing to accept it that is. Checking in on your progress, through a friend or even yourself with journaling writing down your progress can help you see if you need to tweak what you are doing and to see if you need to make any changes to help you on your way to success.
Keeping goals and measuring your progress is very important to staying happy and healthy! It is part of human nature to grow! We hope these small simple expert tips will help you along on your journey so that you can achieve your goals! Don't forget to include your Trim and Tone belt! It will boost your confidence as well so that you will keep yourself on track!
