Are you a GRATEFUL person or do you tend to focus on the things that you don’t have? Do your thoughts often reflect a stream of negative, incessant thought all day that keeps repeating itself over and over again?
You may want to listen to what I have to say here because your thoughts may be having a direct effect on just how much exercise you engage in each week!
A very compelling study by psychologists listed in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology stated that “people who kept a weekly gratitude journal exercised up to an 1-1/2 hrs. more per week than their grumbling peers.”
People in the gratitude group had to list up to 5 things they were grateful for each week for 10 weeks. These participants also reported feeling more enthusiastic and determined in general…the combination of these feelings are just FUEL for exercise! This very noteworthy study can be said to imply that having a strong mindset is key to weight loss.
Now, if you have not heard of the Unstoppable Fat Loss Audios…well you are in for a treat. This program is critical to skyrocketing your fat loss success. They are jam packed with key mindset strategies that will transform your thoughts on a daily basis. You will hear amazing stories about people that have achieved incredible fat loss success once they realized their mind needed to change!
In conclusion, I would like you to take some time to reflect on your own daily thoughts. How would you sum up your attitude? Do you wake up grateful? Do you look around and truly see all the positive that surrounds you or do you tend to only focus in on the negative?
Obviously, having an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ will get you closer to your ideal weight. So go and get yourself a small notebook and begin reflecting on all the greatness you have already in your life! You may begin with being grateful for the gift of ’sight’ to be able to read this…
Cheers to health,
