Motivation hack inside…

Today I have one of my favourite assignments for you … it’s to set a goal bucket list!

 

Not a forever bucket list, but one for the rest of this year.

 

Doing this will help you SKYROCKET your motivation... 

 

Because your brain is hardwired to like new, fun, and different things.

 

When you try something new – or take up a new challenge – it fires up the “feel good” part of your brain.

 

There's a pretty nifty little hack to keep your motivation levels high also...

 

Here it is: factor “novelty” into your goal equation! 

 

When you do this, it can keep you moving forward and excited about continuing with your goals and healthy habits.

 

Here are a few ideas of what I’m talking about:

  • Run 5 or 10k
  • Track your macros for an entire week (or month!)
  • Do a recipe challenge where you cook 2-3 new meals (from scratch) every week
  • Learn to surf
  • Be able to hold a plank for 2 minutes
  • Be able to do 10 full-body push-ups (or 50!)
  • Try a martial art - like BJJ (go see our friends at SJJA Caloundra)
  • Challenge yourself to one week without any added sugar
  • Do your first box jump
  • Meditating every day for one month and journal your progress
  • Set a daily activity goal for a week or month (10,000 steps a day), and use your fitness tracker to chart your success
  • Go on an active date every week: bowling, indoor ice skating, or axe throwing!
  • Take a cooking class

 

The list of ideas is endless! 

 

The whole point is to try NEW, FUN things that support a healthy lifestyle.

 

What are you going to try? Let me know!
