Mind vs. Body

When you think of your health and fitness, you likely picture a physical form – your body or perhaps the ideal image of your body after achieving your goals. While your body plays a very large part in helping you achieve such goals, the journey to optimal health starts in your mind.

In order to attain your desired level of health and fitness you must first want it enough to ensure you have the right attitude to get started — this may require you to change the way you think. Any thoughts of “I have no time” or “maybe tomorrow” must be replaced with encouraging thoughts and a strong sense of motivation.

Your mind may prove to be your biggest challenge during workouts – putting complete focus into each exercise, reminding yourself to breathe, urging yourself to lift one more time or hold that pose for 10 more seconds.

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going. What motivates you?

Contentment vs. Complacency

Is there a difference between being content and being complacent with one’s health and fitness? Simply said, yes there is a difference. If you are content with your level of health and fitness then you are generally satisfied in how you feel and what you can do. Whereas complacency generally has a negative connotation to it.

Merriam-Webster defines complacency as being: “Marked by self-satisfaction especially when accompanied by unawareness of actual dangers or deficiencies.”  To determine if you are feeling complacent you should ask yourself if “good enough” is really good enough.

Complacency is often the resulting factor of mindsets like, “I have no time” and, “Today is not good, maybe tomorrow.” How does one overcome complacency? The first step is to recognize that your feeling of satisfaction is misguided and to realize that your perceived end-goal is actually within your reach.

So the question becomes, are you genuinely satisfied with your health and fitness or have you developed general apathy for all things health and fitness related?
