3 Things to keep you motivated this winter

In this 18 min live video recording I explain the 3 suggestions that I have to get you motivated, and more importantly KEEP you motivated during winter:

Or you may prefer to read on for a brief overview:

GOALS: Give yourself a mission for winter.

For example your winter goal may be to lose 5kg.

Break this down and get yourself focused on your daily goals! Stop over thinking things and focus on the short term.

  • Daily goals eg. Drink 2 litres water a day, Eat 7 vegetables, Move for 30 mins.
  • Weekly goals eg. Plan meals for the week, Food shopping routine, Attend parkrun.
  • Monthly goals eg. Bulk food prep, Get a massage, Enter a race or event.
  • 3 Monthly goal (the entire winter): Lose 5kg.

VITAMIN D: Are you getting enough?

Seasonal depression or the “winter blues” is a real thing!

  • Anxiety
  • Carbohydrate cravings
  • Fatigue
  • Irritation
  • Sleeping problems … and the list goes on.

Researchers think that it’s triggered by a vitamin D deficiency due to lack of sunlight… so if you’re feeling unmotivated, maybe you need some time outside?

**Qld Cancer Council suggests just five or six minutes of sunshine is adequate exposure to maintain healthy vitamin D levels. This should be either before 10am or after 2pm**

REWARD: Plan a mid-winter treat

Plan ahead so on those cold dark mornings when you’re considering hitting the snooze button, you have something to look forward to as a reward.

This might be as extravagant as heading to the Northern hemisphere for a holiday, or:

  • A day at a day spa.
  • New joggers / training outfit.
  • A massage or even better massage gun so you can have one every day of your life!
  • Weekend at a Airbnb.
  • Dinner with mates at your favourite restaurant… or ANYTHING that makes you feel great and is something for you to look forward to.

And most importantly, always remember:

It is up to us to create motivation, it doesn’t happen by itself!
