“It feels good” is a good enough reason to exercise

“It feels good” is a good enough reason to exercise and take care of yourself.

Motivation is personal because it is influenced by individual experiences, values, beliefs, and goals. What motivates one person may not necessarily motivate another, and what motivates a person at one point in their life may change over time.

Personal experiences, such as past successes or failures, can shape someone’s motivation. For example, a person who has successfully lost weight in the past may be motivated to exercise to maintain their weight loss, while someone who has struggled to lose weight may be motivated by different factors.

Values and beliefs also play a role in motivation. For example, someone who values health and wellness may be motivated to exercise for the long-term benefits it provides, while someone who values competition may be motivated by the challenge of improving their performance.

Goals are another important factor in motivation. People are often more motivated to work towards goals that are meaningful to them personally. For example, someone who wants to run a marathon may be motivated to train consistently to achieve that goal, while someone who is less interested in running may not be as motivated by the same goal.

Motivation to exercise can be driven by various factors, which can thus vary from person to person. Some common motivators include:

1. Health benefits: Many people are motivated to exercise to improve their overall health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.
2. Weight management: Exercise can help with weight loss or weight maintenance, which is a significant motivator for many individuals.
3. Energy and mood enhancement: Regular exercise can boost energy levels and improve mood due to the release of endorphins, known as “feel-good” hormones.
4. Fitness goals: Setting and achieving fitness goals, such as running a marathon or lifting a certain weight, can be a strong motivator for some people.
5. Social support: Exercising with friends, family, or in a group setting can provide social support and accountability, making it more enjoyable and motivating.
6. Stress relief: Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and improve mental health, which can be a powerful motivator for many individuals.
7. Self-confidence: Regular exercise can improve self-esteem and body image, leading to increased motivation to continue exercising.
8. Fun and enjoyment: Finding enjoyable activities and fun can make exercise more appealing and sustainable in the long run.

If you are seeking motivation to exercise, to invest in a new habit or routine; talking to a close friend or a family member or your therapist helps. Many times, following like minded people on social media and then speaking to a personal trainer can help as well.
