How To Live a Healthy Lifestyle?
What motivates people to exercise? Why some people can be motivated all the time and others lose motivation quickly? There are two types of motivation: positive and negative. Most people deal with negative emotions and that is especially true when it comes to exercising. There are lots of reasons why people exercise. What is your reason for exercising? Do you exercise just because of the enjoyment of it? I don´t think so! People want to lose weight, be healthier and be more beautiful, so they have to exercise to achieve that.
Basically people are not exercising because of positivity and for the love of exercising. They exercise because they do not like the way they look and so they attempt to change this. If your motivation is negatively cultivated, it is much harder to stick to something. The same is with following a healthy diet as well. If your motivation is fueled by negativity and negative emotions, then the fuel is not gone last very long. [Read: Kick Start Healthy Eating]
