HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED

Happy Easter everyone! I spent my long weekend up in the mountains. AKA my happy place. 🙂 There is no better feeling to me than being out in the fresh mountain air, and skiing all day long.

Today I wanted to share with you one of my favourite ways to stay motivated with my fitness. To start, it is so important to do something active that you love. It just makes things so so so much easier haha. Second, (and today’s main topic) is setting personal goals and challenges for yourself. Lately I have been challenging myself to try new things on the mountain to make sure I am always improving at what I love to do. Since I grew up downhill ski racing, I have a bit of a lazy tendency to just want to do the nice groomed runs. Why? Because I’m good at it and it comes easy to me. In my opinion, it is so important to be continuously improving at anything you do and always striving for excellence. Repeatedly doing the same thing over and over can get you into a bit of a “rut.” Your skill level will not improve, and you will become bored and uninterested with the activity because nothing new or exciting is happening (at least that happens to me lol.) I tend to be very motivated by tangible results, or visible improvements in my skill level. This is why I have been challenging myself with my skiing (and in most things I do) to make sure that I am always improving, and always striving for excellence. When you push yourself, you will usually discover that you are better at something or can do things you never even thought you could! Personal challenges in themselves are enough to keep me going up the mountain, and striving to do better. It makes things a bit more interesting, you know? 

What do you do to keep yourself motivated in your fitness routine? Setting personal goals/challenges for myself is a big one for me, and I really recommend you give it a go! Comment below to tell me your favourite way to stay motivated 🙂

  1. The pictures are absolutely amazing, it really makes me want to be back in Europe for winter 🙂
    I definitely agree that setting challenges and stepping out of your comfort zone helps staying motivated, because if you just keep doing “easy” exercise (for you), you’ll probably get bored at some point!
