📣 IS MOTIVATION REALLY THAT IMPORTANT?
From time to time I get to hear: "I wish I was as motivated to work out". But people place too much emphasis on motivation, in my opinion.
Of course, watching the Instagram feed it is easy to believe, that all the trainers and fitness models love nothing more than spending their time in the gym all day, every day. But the truth is, most of us do have days when we would rather do something else or nothing at all instead of working out.
🔑 The key is to get up and do it anyway. What helps here has actually nothing to do with motivation, it is rather a habit that has been formed under many years of training.
Everyone can develop a habit, be it going to the gym, eating chocolate cake every day or anything else for that matter.
A paper, “Habits Without Values”, published in Psychological Review suggests that creating a habit is simply a matter of repeating a behaviour until it sticks, even if you don’t enjoy it all that much. All you need to do is go to the gym and stick with it long enough until it becomes a new habit. And then, trust me, being motivated isn't going to be as important.
