“When you are inspired… dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed to be.” – Patañjali
Developing a lifestyle of wellness can be challenging. Sometimes, the challenge seems bigger than the reward. Life has a way of getting busy, even overwhelming. In these moments, it’s important to have a strong source of inspiration – something you can draw from to propel you through the temptation to quit. Don’t know where to start? Your FRESH friends have your back! Here are four of our favorite sources of inspiration:
Family. For most people, family is a major motivator. Whether it’s providing, making them proud or setting a good example, for most of us, our families hold the greatest inspiration potential. When you’re in the depths of inspiration despair, let your family and their desire for your success dig you out. You’ll thank them for it later!
Personal Success. You are the only person who has to live with you 24/7. If you’re being honest, you know what’s an excuse and what’s real. Only you can make yourself press past roadblocks. There’s no greater feeling than looking back at those hurdles, knowing that you found inspiration and made them eat your dust!
Bring Back the Past. Looking back over old photographs can be a huge motivator. When you’re on a long journey, it can be easy to forget how far you’ve come. Having a rough day is no reason to quit! Drag out those old photos and be amazed at your progress. Then hit the gym!
What Will They Think? Normally, we wouldn’t recommend letting other people’s opinions guide your decisions, but in this case it might actually be a positive motivator. Believe it or not, people find YOU to be a source of inspiration in their lives! Crazy, right? We are all responsible to those around us to live the best we can. This doesn’t mean that you never eat cake or have a day off from the gym, it just means that you don’t get stuck in a rut and build a new custom home there.
What inspires you? We’d love to know! Stop by the FRESH Wellness department anytime and let us know where you’re at on your journey to wellness.
