It’s the time of year where everyone vows to workout more, eat better, and lose weight. Yet the reality is, that determination typically dwindles by early February for most of us. This year, let’s vow to change our… vow.
Don’t focus on the “more.” Focus on the reason behind your intention – the “why.” Why do you want to lose weight? Why do you want to workout more? The answer should be simple: I want to be a more confident me.
Studies show that working out can increase your self-esteem. Exercise allows for the release of endorphins, which cause a positive feeling in the body, both physically and mentally. This release of endorphins helps boost your mood and lower your stress level. Whether your ultimate goal is to lose weight or you just want to become more active, working out gives you the satisfaction that you are trying and working towards being a better, fit, more confident you in both mind and body.
Don’t stress if you can’t run a triathlon or dead lift your weight. Find an exercise that you love and make a habit out of it. This way, you’ll feel healthier and happier as you do something you enjoy.
Not sure where to start on your journey to becoming a happier, more confident you? Don’t worry, we’ve provided some suggestions below!
