How to Stop Procrastinating About Your Fitness and Nutrition
“I have been practicing meditation for over two years now. I am so glad that I did because it helped me a lot in my life.” – Anonymous
The first thing you need to do is decide what your goals are. You will be able to achieve them if you put your mind into it. If you want to lose weight, then start meditating every day. If you want to get fit, then start doing it everyday.
If you don’t like the idea of doing something every single day just yet, try one of these techniques:
1) Do nothing for a few days or weeks at a time until your motivation improves.
Then keep going with the same method. This technique works very well when trying to quit smoking and drinking alcohol.
2) Try to do something every day, but don’t focus too much on it.
Just do something that gets your mind off things. For example, you could go for a walk around the park or take a long shower. Don’t worry about getting results immediately; just enjoy yourself while you work towards your goal.
3) Meditate every morning before you wake up and after you fall asleep.
This helps you get into a routine and makes it easier to stick with your habits.
You can start by meditating without music, but most people prefer to do it while listening to new-age or instrumental sounds. It drowns out the noise from your environment and helps you relax at the same time.
4) Set reminders on your phone to go off at random times throughout the day.
This keeps your mind on track when it tends to wander.
Getting in shape and losing weight is much easier than you think. You just need to be consistent. In fact, it’s one of the easiest things in the world once you get into the swing of things.
How Does This Method Help Stop People From Procrastinating?
When you get into the habit of doing something on a regular basis, it becomes much easier to maintain. The key is to create a system that works and stick with it. There are a lot of people that have quit drinking and smoking using this method. It’s not an easy way out because there is no way out. You have to make sacrifices in order to achieve your goals.
In terms of weight loss and building muscle, it’s a little more difficult because you have to eat properly and work out consistently for it to work. It’s not easy when you first start out. You’ll probably feel a little run down for the first few weeks, but then you start to get used to it. Soon enough, you’ll be feeling healthier than ever before.
Once you get the hang of it, it almost becomes too easy. You don’t have to force yourself to eat healthy or workout because it just happens naturally. It’s not a chore anymore; it’s just something you do without thinking about it. This is the stage where most people plateau because they stop pushing themselves hard enough. To get past this stage, you need to push yourself even more.
This is when you start to see the best results. Your body should be used to working out at this point. You should have a clear goal that you’re trying to reach. Once you start reaching your goals, it’s easy to get addicted to all the positive reinforcement.
You’ll feel better about yourself and be more motivated in general. The next thing you know, you’re looking and feeling better than ever before. However, this is just the beginning of your journey. You’ll eventually hit a wall where you’re comfortable. The key to continuing your success is to set new goals and constantly challenge yourself.
Challenge yourself to a competition with someone. Push yourself harder than ever before during every workout. Focus on the long-term rather than the short-term. See yourself with the body you want rather than just looking at the present moment. Continue setting daily reminders on your phone to keep focused throughout the day.
If you can master the ability to consistently work on your goals every single day, you’ll accomplish everything you ever dreamed of. You just need to push yourself a little further every single day.
If you don’t have a goal that you’re working towards, then you need to take the time to set one. It could be anything. The most important thing is that it’s something that you’re passionate about. Something that will continue to challenge you even when you reach your goal.
Just remember, anything is possible as long as you’re willing to put in the work every single day.
