Episode #005: How to Get Motivated When You Don’t Feel Like It
“I just have no MOTIVATION. I don’t have motivation to eat healthy. I don’t have motivation to work out. I just don’t want to do it.” Have you ever heard yourself saying this?
In this episode, I talk about how motivation is something we create and that we have to take action in order to create motivation.
I explain why we can’t just wait for motivation, especially if we’re living with stress because trying to muster up motivation does not work.
In this episode, you’ll hear… “There is no mustering of motivation ever.” -Katrina
In this episode, you’ll learn…
00:30 A big mistake that most people make is that they wait for motivation before trying to get healthy.
01:52 Trying to muster up motivation does not work.
02:11 We gotta take action, even if there’s no motivation.
03:27 When your brain is triggered by stress, whether it’s from internal stress or external stress, you’re going to want to seek pleasure.
05:58 The problem is that if we wait too long, we will be waiting forever and we will never do what we really intended to do.
06:29 You must take action, despite lack of motivation.
08:38 First, we need to invite God into your health journey and ask for his strength.
09:45 The second key ingredient for taking action is that you really need to understand why you’re even going to bother taking that first step to begin with.
13:14 And third, we take small baby steps.
Are you ready to put God at the center of your health journey and to finally achieve your health and wellness goals? Join me every Thursday to learn how!
