Making change is something that has to happen within yourself. Sure you can watch a Ted Talk, or watch an inspirational video, but that’s only short term motivation.
To actually make change, you have to better understand yourself, and what kind of ‘you’ you want to be. If you look at yourself and see goals and growth and endless possibilities if you start to make changes, then you’re all set to go! You just need to make it happen.
However, the sad truth is,
There are very few people in the world who have to kind of motivation. The kind of people you read about in the media as having insanely productive routines, and achieving new goals every week. That’s the special factor that makes it such that there only a few amazing people in the world. The motivation they have means they don’t have to motivate themselves in silly, short term ways.
They know what they want, and know they just have to achieve it. There’s no other way for them.
So you have to ask yourself, what do you want? How are you going to get there? How much are you willing to put in?
I also find it’s really helpful to plan in advance how you’re going to change things up and keep them fresh. In 2021 I selected different free-trials for fitness platforms/channels (spent January doing YouTube’s “Yoga with Adriene” Breath journey, February trialling Peloton’s app for free, and am doing a Pilates one for March) to keep things fresh and get the most out of my trials!!
- How essential is it to excersise in the morning if I’m already used to doing it in the evening and doing a quick stretching set in the morning?

- What is your favorite exercise routine to do at home?
- I want to start gym in morning. But I am not able to get up before 8 am at all. 😉 How can I do it? Alarms and wake-up calls don’t work. Please help!
- The goal is to make exercise a lifestyle. How do I go about that?
- How do you improve and keep things fresh in your exercise habit?
- What exercises are in your morning routine?
- How is exercising every day different from just 2 to 4 times a week?
- How do you exercise outside in extreme cold or heat weather conditions?
- What do you say to yourself to keep exercising when it gets difficult, you don’t have time, or you’re too tired, or burned out, or feeling a little sore, etc?
