Want to get a fitter body and feel better in 2012? Then think positive.
Thoughts matter, so choose the good ones. Changing the way you think can help you get a great workout and overcome any obstacles in your way.
Positive thinking can keep you going.
It’s winter, it’s cold and dark. Seasonal depression sets in and you find yourself stuck in bed or on that comfy couch.
Positive statements such as ‘I will feel great when I am done’, or “I am worth it” can get you up and motivated. Just talking yourself into a quick workout can result in the best workout you’ve had in weeks.
Positive thoughts can intensify your workout.
Once you get to the gym, pushing yourself during the workout is what gets results.
Simple positive statements can push you through a workout. Positive affirmations such as “you can do it”, “be strong”. Small phrases like, “run”, “breathe” and “drive” can be very effective.
Positive thinking can help overcome obstacles.
No matter what your health and fitness goals are, you must face obstacles. If you are dieting and someone offers you a piece of cake, use positive thoughts. Don’t give in so easily. Affirm that cake is something that your just not interested in right now and perhaps once you reach your goal you will have a slice.

Staying Positive:
Every time you have a negative thought replace it with a positive one.
Focus on the positive outcome of your fitness goals. This will give you something to look forward to…
Form a good support group. Surround yourself with others who are striving for health and fitness goals.
Expose yourself to positive resources, such as books, lectures…
Listen to your thoughts. Negative thinking is usually a sign that it is time to make some changes.
Recognize your progress and let it be positive motivation propelling you toward your goals.
***Positive thinking is very effective. You must practice and be on the lookout for negativity.
