Motivation 101: How to Find Motivation (and Keep It!)

Motivation is HARD to find and even harder to keep.

At Why Start Monday, we understand that sometimes you can’t find that motivation to eat healthily, go for a walk, or get to the gym. And that’s okay. We want to encourage you to believe that you don’t have to work out every day to be healthy or eat a salad every meal to get lean. That’s not sustainable, nor will it lead to healthy overall LIFESTYLE changes. And that’s our goal - a healthy, achievable, sustainable lifestyle.

So instead of encouraging you to hit the gym seven times a week and eat a salad for two of your three meals, we instead want to help you find the motivation to introduce those small but effective changes to your life. Starting your wellness journey is SO exciting, but sometimes sticking to a plan or routine is hard.

At Why Start Monday, we know that this health and wellness journey isn’t always easy, and that’s why we want to help you have the encouragement, motivation, and inspiration that you need every single day. Here are our best tips for staying motivated in your lifestyle!

Motivation Comes From Every Day

Don’t get so focused on the long-term goals that you miss out on the journey! Keeping that motivation going can be SO hard if your goal is part of a five-year plan with no end in sight. Appreciate every single day of your journey so that you don’t become overwhelmed and so that you can keep up that motivation! You can do this by making smaller wellness goals, such as daily or weekly targets, to keep you motivated every day!
