Why keep trying
to make the better choices?
You want to walk, run, fly, dance
You still have places to go and things to do
You have people you want to enjoy
You have work you want to do
You have gifts to share
What are your reasons for making better choices?
Organizing Ideas for motivation
Post a picture(s) of your answer to the question — What are your reasons for making better choices? — in a location where you’ll see it every day. Make this a positive picture or at the very least non-judgmental. Don’t post a picture of yourself, if every time you look at it you say something negative about yourself.
Journal about your reasons. Find your reasons that you want to make the healthier choices. Not why you should or why someone else wants you to, but your internal reasons for making the changes.
Make it a game. Draw out the path you want to take, just like a board game. Draw in those spaces where you wait out a turn (or choice), make a harder choice, go back a few squares, get an extra reward, or whatever your imagination can come up with to positively move you forward.
