I’ve been super busy lately and it seems like every aspect of my life is demanding attention. It’s tough to find time to squeeze in cooking healthy meals and exercising when I’m already feeling overwhelmed. But I’ve been thinking about show season lately, which is rapidly approaching, and I want to stay dedicated to being in better shape so I can be more successful in the ring.
And it all sounds great in my head… until it comes time to, ya know, put in the time. I’ve definitely been struggling with motivation this month and it’s a frustrating place to be. Turning mental desire into concrete action is quickly becoming my biggest hurdle. So I’ve decided to start posting motivational quotes and pictures around my office and my house, to help remind me at every turn to keep going.
As I write this, I’m printing pictures of me showing in high school, when I was quite a bit skinnier. I’m also writing some quotes onto post-it notes to put on the mirror of my bathroom. Anyone care to share what visual aids you’ve used in the past to keep yourself motivated? Has this sort of thing worked for you? I’m a very visual person, and definitely a visual learner, so I’m thinking that having these images in my face will help remind me to go after what I want: a healthier and fitter body, mind and soul.
