Fitness affirmations can be a real boost when we’re trying to achieve our health goals. This is because it’s not unusual to pick up bad habits when it comes to getting fit and healthy. Many of us will try diets that starve our body of essential nutrients and cause us to put on even more weight after we are finished with them.
Becoming healthy really comes down to making simple choices. Doing more exercise and eating whole and nutritious foods. It is important to feel happy with our bodies during the process and recognise the small achievements we make as we make them.
However, it’s not just adopting these healthier choices, we need to make them our new lifestyle. In other words, we need to commit. One of the ways you can do this is by reciting fitness affirmations to yourself everyday.
Affirmations allow you to not only visualise your goals, but to speak your intention of achieving them. Think about the manner in which you say things, are you usually confident in your statements?
Most people who are trying to become fit might state, “I’d love to be fit.” or “One day i’ll get fit when I have the time.”
These are not concrete statements and you’re hearing the doubt you have from the onset. Affirmations allow you to verbalise goals in a confident manner and then recite them so you start to act on those statements. It is a simple positive thinking method that is used for a wide variety of reasons, and it’s very powerful.
It works best if you identify your own goals and create affirmations from them. However, to help get you thinking in the right way, here are 29 fitness affirmations you can use to help you in achieving your health goals.
