10 Ways to Stay Motivated When Fasting
When you need a motivational boost, close your eyes and imagine what your life will look like in the future — three, six, or 12 months or longer from now — if you were to quit today.
Make sure you're honest with yourself. Think about how you felt and looked before you began your healthy lifestyle journey and the positive changes you've made so far, and then create questions and scenarios around those things.
This motivational tactic forces you to take stock of the life you lived prior to deciding to get healthy and how much worse you would feel if you continued along that unhealthy path. That future can be a very scary place, but the beautiful thing about your future is that it hasn't been decided yet.
