So have you ever had one of those mornings or afternoons when you really just don’t want to go to the gym, or for go our for that run? Yeah I know they suck. So how do you get past those moments when you just want to pull the covers back over your head, or turn on the TV and zone out? It’s called habit.
Habit can take time to develop, but it is what keeps you going when you don’t feel like doing it. Motivation comes and goes. There is no long lasting motivation that will never wear off, because motivation is temporary. But habits are hard to break.
We often think about habits as things that are bad, but habits can be good too. Once we get into the habit of eating healthy and working out then we feel like something is off if we miss a workout, or start eating like crap. So if you are trying to figure out how to keep your motivation for the gym and healthy eating alive, stick with it and get that habit developed. It will be your best friend when you don’t feel like it.
