You can exercise daily and consume the right foods, but without the right mental mindset, you’re not likely to achieve your goals as fast as you may hope. It all comes down to mind over matter – are you emotional eating due to stress? Are you desperate to lose weight and trying crazy fad diets and quick fixes? Do you always look for the positive instead of the negative?
Your mind is very powerful - it can influence good and bad behaviors. If you feel that achieving your goals is going to be too much of a struggle, you are more likely to give up. This is why it’s important to set smaller, short-term goals and reward yourself after achieving them.
