Motivation to Change Your Life
6 tips to help you get moving
It can be challenging to get going on a new habit or change your life. Your routine is often the biggest obstacle in your way, so how do you break out of your comfort zone? How do you motivate yourself to make these changes and create a new life for yourself?
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to help you get moving without effort.
In this blog post, we’ll explore some helpful tips and tricks that will help you take any step towards changing your life for the better!
Change your environment
Your environment has a huge impact on your habits. So, if you change your environment so it is more conducive to your goals, you can change your habits. Remove all distractions, remove clutter, and keep the place clean, or even change how your environment looks.
Your environment is only a small part of the picture as even if you move to a new place, you’ll still be surrounded by the same people, cars, and structures. It will still be your home, so change the way you live. This could mean picking up some new decor or decorating your home with more vibrant colours. It could also mean making some changes to what you eat, like adding more veggies or fruits to your meals and snacks.
Always remember that you can’t change your entire environment in one day, but if you pick out a few small changes, you can make a big impact that is much easier to maintain. For example, switching off the TV during dinner time or taking a walk outside after dinner. These changes will make the rest of your life seem a little more vivid, and they can help you stay motivated.
Keep a journal of your progress
Keeping a journal can help you stay motivated and to track your progress, which is great for your own accountability. Whether you use your phone or a notebook, you can literally journal about anything – your thoughts, feelings, problems you are facing, solutions from past situations, or purely to keep a log of what you achieved.
You could also be struggling to get to the gym or find yourself having negative feelings about your goals or your progress. Having a journal can create a safe space where you can share those feelings or frustrations rather than bottle them up inside.
If you are feeling unmotivated or in need of a boost of inspiration, your journal can be the boost you need. It really can be your ‘go-to’ tool to help you stay motivated and keep moving forward.
Change can seem daunting, and starting a new habit can be challenging, especially if you’re not sure where to begin. You can’t just will yourself into being happier and healthier. You have to put in the work and find ways to stay motivated. Make a plan, find activities you enjoy, change your environment, and set mini-goals to help build momentum.
These changes won’t happen overnight, so be patient and persistent. Once you start down the path toward a healthier and happier life, you’ll be amazed at how easy it can be!
