How to Get Motivation to Lose Weight

This post is to encourage people who wish to lose weight but feel lazy to do so. Whether you’re exercising the natural way or using diet pills and weight loss equipment, do so under supervision.

Children, naturally remain active, and it takes a while before they compose themselves and walk straight on the road, instead of hopping, skipping and jumping from one room to another under the same roof!

In adolescence, the pressure of remaining slim and acquiring an hour-glass figure, especially in case of women is so overwhelming, that even a favorite flavor of ice-cream becomes a taboo.

However, after marriage and a couple of children, we enjoy plunking down the office chair, in front of the idiot box, and dream we too possessed the kind of figure Jane Fonda would be envious of! As complacency sets in, lethargy overtakes your enthusiasm to kick the flab.

Procrastinating on Getting into the Gym? Your Subconscious Could be the Culprit

Have you ever been shocked by the sudden creativity you’ve displayed when making up excuses for why you keep ditching out on the gym?  If you’re amazed at your mind’s resolve to constantly lie to itself about why you haven’t been following up on your new year’s resolution to get in shape, the problem may not lye in laziness, but in your mind itself.

Although there’s no way to know for sure what your inhibition is unless you see a therapist, the most common reason stopping people from going to the gym is the anxiety they associate with working out. 

Overcoming this anxiety is more than just simply forcing yourself to overcome it each time you want to work out.  You need to attack the source of your anxiety by breaking the negative associations your subconscious mind has with exercise. 

Reprogramming Your Subconscious Mind

There are many ways to reprogram your subconscious into having positive associations with something that normally triggers anxiety.  They can either be by extracting negative associations from your subconscious or by implanting positive ones.

Striving for Imprefection: Why Perfectionism can Prevent Improvement

I am a perfect-o-holic.

Sure, I know it’s folly; yet I can picture that magical happy place where all goes according to plan and everything works out as I imagined. I have a plan.

Becoming the perfect worker

Today, I become the pinnacle of modern workplace efficiency. Without exception, every single solitary item on my to-do list will be accomplished — even those lingering on the pad since ‘07. Phone calls will be returned in a timely, upbeat, eager manner, complete with all the necessary and required information at hand.

Today, every goal will be exceeded; every deadline shall be beat. Should I spot a customer, client, co-worker, or vendor, I shall stretch out a warm enthusiastic hand in friendship, greeting her with passion, warmth, and energy; developing the ultimate positive reputation. Today, all reports will be finished on time and with precision.

Today, the five-year backlog of filing shall be ended. Facebook farm games, really cute cat videos on YouTube, and forwarded emails with titles like “LOL! OMG! You’ve got to see this!” shall not deter me from my mission. I am a rock. (I shall be so effectual that I will have even had enough spare time to properly arrange my computer’s desktop icons in perfect order. After all, I owe it to myself to have some fun.)
