Newton’s First Law ofMotion states “An object in motion stays in motion until acted upon by anoutside force.” Using this logic, thekey to establishing a fitness routine would be to simply get the ball rolling. But, the opposite of this law is often wherepeople find themselves stuck: “An object at rest stays at rest until an outsideforce changes it.”
Oftentimes we have theoutside force acting upon us in the form of the media, doctors, or simply ourloved ones who want us to change our health for the better. But sometimes this isn’t enough. How can we motivate ourselves to find theright fitness mindset?
A positive mindset iskey to achieving any fitness or weight loss goal, and achieving that mindsetoften involves self-assessment and reflection. Our thoughts help originate every action we take, thus switchingthoughts to more positive and encouraging patterns could be key to establishinga well-rounded mindset about a fitness routine.
Fitness blogger andtrainer Shelly Greenfield advises clients to analyze how they think ofthemselves; pick a label that sounds appealing and apply it to the lifestyleone wishes to achieve. Thinking ofoneself as a fit mom, or a competitor, begins to have an effect on the psyche,and the positive affirmations will eventually affect positive changes.
The mind is a powerfultool when it comes to establishing any sort of fitness routine or new lifestylechange. Instead of a self-assessment offat or thin, unhealthy or well, a person should assess themselves as who theywant to become. Belief turns intoreality, and soon enough mind will be enough to move the body off the couch andinto a healthier lifestyle.
