My husband has had a lot of problems due to his rather lacking ability of sticking to something because it’s not fun. How often do we notice this about ourselves? How something we find dreary usually lasts for about two weeks (if even that) before we make the thousands of various excuses to never do it again. Against our better judgement of course, knowing there are reasons why we’re supposed to do this dreary thing and how it’ll benefit us in the long run as long as we keep up with it.
My husband has had a lot of problems with his weight, high stresslevels and overloaded with work. As such it made it difficult for him to find the energy and the “want” to start exercising so he could live a healthier life. And obviously, preferably not die of a heartattack before he hits 45.
I saw a TED-talk with Mel Robbins who essentially said that acknowledging your biggest obstacle is your first battle. And your biggest obstacle is essentially; You’re never gonna feel like it.
Which is my husbands biggest obstacle as well. He never feels like it because he’s always tired, overworked and stressed. Motivation only takes you so far, its not gonna help you out of a warm bed a cold winter morning at 5 am for your workout before you go to work.
And as such I made this piece for him to keep at his workplace as a reminder for whenever his head starts to come up with excuses for him.
So far it seems to be working.
