When it comes to exercise, who motivates you? Are you your own motivator?
Working out is one of the first things I do in my daily routine. I do it without even thinking about it. Even when I was working in education, I used to get up at 5:45 AM to do my 30-45 minutes of fitness. It always came naturally for me. I am my own motivator!
We live in a very busy/stressful society. Physical activities can help us be happy, slow down, and see the world in a different, positive way.
Question: can you become your own motivator? Well, my husband worked out for years with his best friend, Terrell, an ex-Navy SEAL. These two would get up at 4:00 AM, rain or shine, to go running and train for survival/adventure races together. Now, unfortunately, my husband and his best friend live in two different counties; they no longer workout together.
Even though his buddy no longer works out with him every day, Patrick still manages to motivate himself to implement a daily workout in his busy schedule. So, if you don’t have anyone who works out with you, that’s okay. You can be your own motivator.
Have a great day, everyone! I will catch up with you soon. xoxo
