Using Personal Growth And Fitness To Overcome Challenges

A healthy mind leads to a healthy body! With 80% of adults in America not getting the amount of exercise recommended daily what can you do to increase your fitness?

Does this apply even if getting out and about is a challenge? Yes, it does, if you take in information that leads to personal growth you will see benefits in your outlook.

Secondly, even if your circumstances mean that getting out and about is a challenge, adjusting your mind so that you can identify personal growth will work for you.

Many people acknowledge the need to first focus on positivity and wellness routines before starting a grueling fitness regime.

However, how do you increase your fitness when getting out is a challenge?

Expand Personal Growth

Just as fitness depends on an amount of discipline, personal growth follows the same success path. Training your mind to form useful habits leads to healthier routines forming.

For instance, you may be able to walk around the house unaided or with assistance, use that activity that you ‘can do’ to build a personal growth goal around.

Riding an exercise bike for an amount of time each day can change the way you think about yourself as a healthy person, some bikes even let you monitor your fitness progress over time.  Set yourself a goal of thinking positively about the activity that you can do.

Celebrate that activity when you regularly do it. Then set other personal growth goals. American motivational speaker Les Brown said, ‘Once a person’s mind has been expanded by an idea, it can never be satisfied with going back to where it was.’

Therefore, achieving your first personal goal that expands the way you think about fitness means you are on the journey and you will never go back.

Develop Sustainable Fitness

Even if you find getting out of the house a challenge there are definite ways to increase your fitness. It is widely understood that you do not have to run your local marathon or even run to your local coffee shop to achieve as a ‘fit’ person.

Instead, you need to ask yourself respectfully what is important for you to achieve. It could be that you are able to join a gym and attend during a low peak time when there will be more assistance and mentoring available for you or you may decide to slowly incorporate gym-like activities in your home.

Staying positive and mindful of what you can do builds confidence and trains your mind for personal growth.

Essential for a healthy body is a healthy mind. Recognizing the need for personal growth is where all exercise regimes should start.

Setting your own personal goals that take into account your particular challenges should be done mindfully with a view

 to celebrating who you are and what you can achieve.

Continue to move forward with your goals and you will see results.
