Do you ever see posts by health and exercise gurus online and just think “wow, how the hell do they do that?”. Well, it’s all about finding your fitness mojo! Finding your motivation and enthusiasm is the number one most important thing when it comes to succeeding with a workout regime. If you aren’t feeling the vibes, then you are never going to meet your goals! Austin Powers managed to find his mojo all those years ago, now it’s time for you to find yours! Here is how to find your fitness mojo.
1. Epiphany Moment
You need to get to that moment of epiphany when you realise that you want to get your old life back. It might be wanting to fit in those old jeans, it might be wanting to play with your kids without getting tired quickly, it might be wanting to recreate an old bikini pic. Whatever it happens to be for you, when you finally have that epiphany moment, all of your motivation and mojo will click into place!
2. Injury Fix
Lots of people shy away from exercise and fitness regimes because they have a recurring injury that they don’t want to aggravate. If this is the case, then what you really need to do is address the injury and get it fixed and ‘therapied’ before you can start your new lifestyle. Once you are fit and pain free, you will find that your mojo is just around the corner!
Your mojo might come to you in the form of being inspired to prevent your body from going through any premature and unnecessary damage. You might feel relatively fine now, but if you continue to carry those extra pounds, it might start to have an impact on your back a few years from now. Take this future fear as a sign to start right now!
4. Mood Boost
The best way to get your mojo back is to fight through the lazy barrier and get started no matter what. What you will find is that through this initial workout, no matter how much you don’t want to do it, that first rush endorphins that are released will help to remember just how good the process can feel!
It can be really motivating to set a milestone goal for yourself. If you have a significant birthday coming up, then set that as the target line for reaching whatever goal you want to achieve. Having a finish line in sight can be just the thing to kick start your mojo and inner competitive side.
