M.O.V.E. Motivation to be healthy.
Motivate, Organize, Visualize, Execute.
It doesn’t take much. Get off the technology. I hear everyday in my practice “…you don’t understand doc. I need to get things done and I have to be “connected. My people need me. I work constantly. If I didn’t have my cell phone, computer etc. I would never get done. How is this? How did we as a race build pyramids, discover new worlds across the ocean, put someone in outer space. We did all of this without cell phones and technology that keeps us not in constant contact but in a vegetative “zombie” state. We are spending more on health care than ever before and we are sicker than we have ever been in history. Put down your smart phones and MOVE.
Motivation to be healthy.
Motivation can come from within or outside. It is usually helpful to have someone alongside you. You can then hold each other accountable.
Organize to be healthy.
Organize: This means you have to plan. Failing to plan means you are planning to fail.
Visualize to be healthy.
Visualize: See in your minds eye exactly every detail of your successful outcome and use your organizational plan to achieve it!
Finally, Execute: Sitting on the couch with all the best positive thoughts in the world will not get you your ideal goals. Part of your execution is the planning to commit to a workout, eating plan and specific times to do so. Do not waiver from this. Oh you say your life got in the way. My patients ran over. That is my big rationalization. Fill in your own lame excuse here. If something gets in your way. Then you did not do step two properly and plan. Let’s end this Zombie Apocalypse!
