Here at the Salus Foot Surgeon office, we promote good health and well being. I found that having an event coming up that was going to challenge my fitness, helped me to maintain motivation to train.

Here are a few ways to help you keep motivated:

  • Have a fitness buddy
  • Be accountable: tell your friends and family about your goals, post your achievements regularly on social media, ask your partner to help you monitor your progress
  • Celebrate small achievements and the large ones. This helps you to keep on track.
  • Have a plan. Write it out. Hang it somewhere where you will see it on a daily basis.
  • Remind yourself why you are doing this, for example are you losing weight to reduce the stress on your joints to ease pain related to arthritis?
  • Don’t forget to occasionally treat yourself
  • Have an activity that you enjoy
  • Mix it up so you don’t get bored.

What is your motivation to remain fit, lightweight and active?
