Let's face it we all lose motivation to stay active once in a while. Part of the reason is that we are creatures of habit and tend to do the same things over and over. For example, when going to the gym, people tend to do the same machines or use the same peice of cardio equipment and naturally, they will get bored with that. A good thing to do, especially in the good weather, is to take your cardio outside. Go on a walk and breathe the fresh air or dust off that bike and take it for a ride.
...forever reigning champ, stress. Coming at you from actual and percieved life events, stress is the theif in the night when it comes to your health. A little stress...unchecked can cause a heart attack. Unavoidable...if you've ever worried, eaten food, exercised, or breathed anything less than country fresh air or a filtered sea breeze, your body has had to deal with elevated levels of stress.
Celebrating 15 yrs, we took our own experiences, client testimonies, journal articles, and known field practices and found 1000's of strategies and tips that have helped people become healthier. However, it is clear, that what works for some does not work for all. Something else emerged and we are calling it the Big 5.

How much time do you spend thinking reasons why you "can't" do something? Why you can't lose weight, why you can't get the job you want, why you can't buy the house or car you want...etc.What if, instead, you asked yourself "How can I?" When you tell yourself you can't, you shut yourself off from any possibility of doing what you want and destroy any motivation to act. When you ask yourself, "How can I?" you open up your mind to think of possible solutions and you are motivated to act.
