So many people want to lose weight or be healthier or be fitter, but so many of us fail horribly. Why is that? You have the want, the need, and the determination to make the changes, yet you still seem to fail. We have done some research to see why people tend to fail at reaching these health goals. Here is what we found:
Not enough time – Not having enough time to do some exercise is the number one reason why people today say they cannot reach their goals. Life is too busy between work, study, kids, house chores, pets, friends, etc. This is generally a very valid reason, but you should still try and find a few minutes a day for exercise. There are 5-minute or 30-minute exercise routines and advice everywhere. Start implementing one of these short exercise routines and see if that works for you.
Lack of motivation – It is a struggle when we want to get something done, but we lack the motivation because we are tired after a long day or struggle to get up earlier to get some exercise. This is one of the more difficult problems to overcome but it can be done. You need to just force yourself to get started. After a while, it will be much easier and you will find that you have more energy to do everything you need to fit into your day.
Lack of resources – Many people believe that they need to belong to a gym, have a personal trainer, get new exercise clothes, buy supplements, etc. to reach their health and fitness goals. This is not true. You don’t need any of those things to get where you want to be. All you need is your body and the Internet. You will find so many simple and effective exercises that you can do without having any equipment, trainers, or special clothes. You will also find some great food choice advice on Shepherd’s Journal and other websites.
If you can overcome these three main excuses for not getting exercise or not reaching your health goals, you are on your way to success. You just need to take the first step.
