Getting Your Mind Into the Attitude of Fitness to Help You Get Fit
What this freaking world needs is a mindshift! A mindshift that transforms itself from obese and unfit to lean and fit. While there are some that are fat and fit when compared to the fat and unfit, it’s not really, truly fit. We’ve fallen into a paradigm that fat is fit. You are what you believe. It’s your beliefs as well as your values that drives your behavior and actions. I feel for our children. They inherited an attitude that is going to keep them obese, until and unless they have a different framework to work off of. Right now they are surrounded by many ignorant people who are keeping their children obese and unfit due to their beliefs. If you happen to be a parent that falls into this mode of thinking, then stop and readjust. Get help if needed. You certainly don’t want to pass on a legacy of being unhealthy, right?
“If your thoughts on fitness is a ‘really don’t care attitude’, then it’ll show in your body. Don’t blame others.” ~Bob Choat
It’s time to take control of your health and fitness. It’s time take control of your health and fitness attitude first! So, how does one go about doing that?
It starts with the wanting to. While we are instilled with certain beliefs about health and fitness, we can change. I didn’t fall into the same mindset as my father regarding health and fitness. What you focus on the most tends to lead to the behavior and actions you take.
Here are five ideas that can help you develop the attitude of fitness…
- Associate with fitness-minded people. We tend to be the sum average of the people we associate with the most. Put those that are into health and fitness at the top of your list.
- Keep a health and fitness journal. Whatever you put into writing helps embed into you subconscious mind those thoughts. Do it for health and fitness.
- Whenever you decide to engage in physical activity, take immediate action. The more you do this, the more you’ll develop an attitude and habit.
- Engage in fut fitness activities. Fitness doesn’t have to be a struggle of painful activities. If you make it fun, then you’ll look at fitness in a better light.
- Movement is fitness. Look at the movement you do and in the most natural ways as fitness. This will help to instill a mindset of fitness as a lifestyle rather than simply going to a gym.
Take each of those and make them a part of your life. I would add in mindfulness meditation to the mix as well. When you are more mindful of what you do, then your attitude will change as well. I wish the best as you transform yourself into a fully fit-focused person.
