3. Goal centered Exercise.
A good and obvious way to stay motivated is to have SPECIFIC goals. Keep track of your progress by having a daily-weekly journal. This will keep the facts of your progress clear and help you identify strengths and areas to focus on to reach even more goals. You don’t have to have gigantic muscles to be fit nor be frail and thin. You can take boxing if you want an aggressive work out or Tai Chi if you want a more relaxing program. Yoga is great for flexibility and relaxation. There are so many ways. The key is be specific about what you want to get out of your health and fitness lifestyle. As the saying goes, if we fail to plan, we plan to fail.
The average person needs about 7 hrs of sleep per night to function at optimal levels. Some a little more, some a little less depending on the activities in your life.. Rest is necessary for your internal systems to replenish and rejuvenate. Working out stresses the muscles but they only grow when we rest, not when we work out. Yin and Yang is the Law of duality present in all things. We must rest in order to rise. Be smart. Get your Z’s, take breaks, relax, so that you keep the cycle of energy flowing and don’t burn out from over training.
Staying on your training is the most important key to your success because if you quit, you cant be successful. Understanding why we so often fail at staying on our discipline is why these 5 principles exist. When you have the right and correct information (Knowledge), the right diet to supply energy and support your growth and development (Nutrition), the right plan to reach your specific goals (Goal centered Exercise) and the right amount of chill time (Rest) you have the atmosphere for you to stay consist. Breaks are a part of the cycle so don’t give up if u need to, take a break. But put a time frame on it. If you are enjoying your program, you’ll miss it. if not, pick a new one. rotate your routine, try a new program to break the monotony. Work break times into your overall plan. We have no problem continuing what we enjoy, so above all, have fun.
Remember: Winners never quit & Quitters never win. (unless we talking about Smoking. lol)
