Setting goals helps trigger new behaviors in the brain and breaks down mental barriers and align focus and momentum to achieve bigger and better goals. Setting small goals and following these summer training tips might seem like it will do nothing, but these small goals add up to big changes.
Our brain is chemically wired to adapt to changes. Simply making your bed every day sets off happy chemicals in your brain that makes you feel good and leads to wanting to do more and leads to positive change that everyone will notice.
Summer Training Tips
Here are some summer training tips that you can use to start following through on your goals to health and performance improvement:
1. Daily habits – Start small like making your bed, getting up at a consistent time every
day, or drinking a glass of water every morning.
2. Accountability – This is key for reinforcement and keeping you on track. A personal
coach is great for that.
3. Try something new once a week – get outside your comfort zone by trying a new
style of fitness.
4. Learn! – Start by reading some articles that interest you then read a new book or get
a new audio book that helps you learn more about your body and health.
One thing that we promote at TriCore is gaining a heightened state of awareness on your health and body stats. This can help you overcome many mental barriers like the negative emotions many people have about scales and making progress on your health and wellness goals. We use devices like the Withings Body Cardio Scale to help our clients understand that progress happens every single day! And knowing the difference between lean body mass gain VS fat gain is huge to overcoming negative emotions that come from seeing the scale change.
These are the things needed to help overcome your challenges. Hiring a coach can help you have more mental toughness to stay on track, and that is something some people can’t live without!
