San Diego has sunny weather all year-round; giving residents plenty of incentive to enjoy the numerous hiking trails that the city offers; to go hiking, however, people need to be in good shape otherwise they may be putting themselves in danger. So how do people get fit? According to Bobbi Kittle of Kelowna Capital News, positive thinking can help.
It is often said that when it comes to losing weight, half the battle is in our own mind.
If you can erase negativity and doubt from your thinking and develop your inner strength, you’ll reach your weight loss goal more easily.
Here is some advice from the experts on some practical self-talk to help you reach your fitness goals:
Be kind to yourself and accept your body.
Being kind to yourself and accepting your body doesn’t mean you allow yourself to be overweight.
It means you honor your body as it is, while continuing to work on being the best it can be.
Love your body by focusing on the kind words, and nurture your body through nutritious food and exercise.
Practice mindfulness. Be fully present in whatever you’re doing—eating, talking, working, playing—to experience pleasure and meaning.
The problem, however, is keeping a positive attitude. Keeping to an exercise routine or workout schedule may be even more difficult in the face of setbacks, like injuries and chronic pain. In this scenario, individuals who wish to achieve their weight-loss goals may need to look outside themselves and consider personal training in San Diego and other cities. To that end, CNN.com’s Alisha Ebrahimji offers some tips to find an ideal personal trainer.
First, people should look for personal trainers who display incredible amounts of patience for their clients. The “shaming” tactic may work in reality competition shows like “The Biggest Loser,” but it shouldn’t have a place in real life. Personal trainers must know that workout programs that worked for some may not work for everyone, and this is why clients should seek personal trainers whose training methodology is focused on the individual, like Andrea King of True Balance.
Losing weight is a challenge, and it’s important to keep a positive attitude. It will also help if people get a personal trainer in San Diego whom they know has their back.
