At Tone & Sculpt we are always thinking about wellbeing! One key factor that we think leads to positive wellbeing is routine. Given the current state of affairs, a great deal of uncertainty has arisen from a sudden change in our daily routine - a change none of us had control over.
Mental Health Awareness Week is upon us and this year it comes at a time where mental health awareness is almost united amidst the global pandemic. As much as there are growing concerns about the mental health of our global population, perhaps this year we can find some comfort in that we are all in this together.
I've been reading a lot about self-care recently to try to find more ways I can improve my mental health and overall happiness and wellbeing. I know I’m not alone in struggling with anxiety and other mental health issues, so I really wanted to share some things that you too can add to your ‘self-care bank’ of ideas!
People always ask me how I stay motivated to work out, to eat well, to work so much.
They are probably the most common messages I receive from the Tone & Sculpt Familia.
The answer is simple, my approach has nothing to do with motivation and everything comes down to building healthy, sustainable habits.
I cannot emphasise the power of good habits enough.
I read Charles Duhig’s book, The Power of Habit, ages ago and I was practically screaming at the pages as I felt like it was me through and through.
Working out and taking care of my health have nothing to do with motivation.
The reason I say this is because motivation is just a simple feeling – it comes and goes and you just can’t rely on it.
