Getting and Staying Motivated

We’ve all been there. You’re committed to reaching your goals, and, for the first few weeks of your journey, everything is going great. You’re taking your Plenity, with 16 oz of water, twice a day. You’re logging your doses every day. You’re doing the best you can to eat every meal mindfully. But then one day your motivation just isn’t there.

Here’s something to remember: motivation isn’t constant. No one (and we mean no one) can maintain the same levels of motivation day after day. And that’s ok! It doesn’t mean you’re weak, or that you’re not doing everything you can to achieve your goals. This is a normal part of the journey that everyone experiences at some point along the way.

The Power of Planning Ahead

If you stop to think about it, you can probably predict some days, times, and situations that might make it tough for you to stay motivated. By identifying these situations ahead of time, you can figure out some creative ways to cope such as:

  • Practicing self-kindness and reminding yourself that everyone faces these struggles
  • Treating yourself to a non-food reward that lifts your spirit
  • Paying it forward and offering support to someone else
  • Making time for acts of self-care
  • Engaging in some movement that you enjoy (take a walk, play with the dog, garden, do some yoga, etc.)
  • Journaling about how you’re feeling

You’re making so much progress—keep it up! And stay tuned for your next course on turning good habits into rituals.
