We’re Not Sure Who Needs To Hear This But…

Everyone — and we mean everyone! — struggles with their motivation and mindset at some point in their life. This is no different when it comes to our fitness and health journey.

But that doesn’t mean you give up. Instead, you have to get tactical. 

We want to share two simple tools you can use to keep yourself on track when you’re in need of a boost.

They’re AFFIRMATIONS and INTENTIONS — and they might be different than you think! 

You might have heard of these terms before, but sometimes they get lumped in the “woo-woo” category but they’re actually backed by studies.

But what’s the difference? Here’s one way to think of them:

Affirmations are like an umbrella, protecting you from negativity and distractions by keeping them from you. Intentions are all about the things you do UNDER the umbrella to make your goals a reality!

Affirmations boost brain activity, help you stick with healthy habits, improve self-control, and even help you feel happier and more fulfilled.

Intentions can help motivate you to follow through on your specific goals. 

Together, they help you build momentum to make sure that you are on track to meet your goals.

Affirmations are focused on changing beliefs and attitudes. They are also aspirational statements that help you change or create a positive thought pattern. Affirmations usually have a longer-term focus, which make them helpful to have for long periods of time.

Here are a few examples of healthy affirmations:

  • I am strong, healthy, and full of energy
  • My body is resilient, capable, and strong
  • I respect my body with nourishing food and regular exercise

Intentions are focused on guiding your actions or behaviors. They are practical, which make them helpful for focusing on how you want to live, act, or what you want to achieve. Intentions are also usually focused on your day or a specific task, which allows you to change them daily. 

Here are some examples of intentions:

  • I’m going to give it 100% during my workout today
  • My food choices today will support my health and fitness goals
  • Today I will listen to my body and rest when needed

When was the last time you wrote out some affirmations? When was the last time you set an intention for the day? It’s not too late to create one today!

Committed to Your Success,
