“I was piling on the pounds and to be honest friends and family were starting to notice. Although I knew that I should be taking more care of myself, in terms of exercise, I just didn’t feel motivated enough to do it”
There is no doubt that exercise is crucial. Numerous studies have shown the inherent benefits of exercise. So why is it that many of us simply struggle to get ourselves to a gym or exercise in any shape or form? Why is it we cannot answer the basic question, “How to stay motivated to exercise?”
Lacking the motivation in terms of exercise is extremely common. Many people feel initially invigorated to become involved in some form of physical activity only to fall by the wayside after a few days or weeks. More often than not this is due to other factors taking a priority, such as work or personal life. The key to overcoming resistance to forming new exercise habits is to change our attitude towards participating to the point that it becomes part of our daily routine. However this is easier said than done.
Changing your mindset can often be difficult because people are creatures of habit and whether the habit is a good one or a bad one, changing a habit can often be a struggle. That is where hypnotherapy can provide a viable and effective solution.
Hypnotherapy is a form of hypnosis that uses an altered state of awareness to bring about a change in the mindset of an individual. This altered state enables the hypnotherapist to find out why the person lacks motivation to exercise and changes the individuals thoughts and behaviour to make them more motivated to exercise and improve their overall lifestyle.
In most people the reasons behind a lack of motivation to exercise can be a difficult thing to pinpoint. Yet hypnosis uncovers the source of the resistance and helps a person keep going …….even if the going gets tough.
