Improve running motivation for weight loss and other benefits

Though the effectiveness of running for weight loss is obvious and a well-know fact, still finding (or re-finding) the motivation to keep the training consistent proves sometimes difficult and a real struggle. For that, here are 3 ways to keep your running motivation for weight loss on track:

1- Keep writing and rewriting your weight loss goals on a daily basis. The act of constantly repetitive exposure to your goals can entice and motivate your mind to stay on track, or to get back on the right path whenever the motivation withers away. No wonder the law of attraction had so much success.

2- Reward yourself for obvious improvement. You should also treat yourself nicely whenever you take notice of any positive progress. Many people regard weight loss as hard labor and a real punishment, that’s the wrong way of looking at this matter. Instead you should reward yourself for the progress you have made and be grateful. However, you should never indulge yourself in unhealthy eating as a way of rewarding, since this can definitely compromise your weight loss efforts.

3- Tell a friend or a family member about your resolution to lose weight. Getting support from other people may be the only thing you need. Many people live in a closed prison of their choosing and refuse any help from the outside world. This can be sometimes totally justified since no one like to mocked or laughed at. However, asking for others help is a leap of faith you need to make and see how it will turn out.
