I finished Massage Therapy school last Thursday. You would think I would be super excited but I actually feel a little lost. I went to school 4 days each week since September and now it’s time to get back into the “real world”. I’m feeling a little intimidated and unmotivated. I have TONS of things to do but no starting point. So instead of continuing on this downward spiral I’ve decided to find a solution. You see, I am the master of THINKING of good ideas but terrible at DOING them. So this blog post is the first step in DOING something.
I think a lot of people feel the same way about fitness. You have big plans about going to exercise but actually doing the workout is another story. I think about what I would tell a client who had this problem. I’d tell them to:
- schedule workouts into the calendar
- write down short and long term goals
- tell others about the goals for accountability
- give themselves a pat on the back when they accomplish a goal (no matter how small the accomplishment might seem)
So whether your short term goal is to drink 8 glasses of water each day or run 5 miles 3 days per week, keep DOING and not just THINKING.
I’m off to give myself a pat on the back 🙂
