What is your big “why” for wanting to improve your health? There could be many reasons why you want to become healthier, but chances are that there is one that stands out. I first started wondering about my “why” after hearing about Simon Sinek’s book “Start with Why”.
His book has helped many people find theirs and just become aware of the fact that they need to establish one.
What are some of my current reasons why I’m trying to become as healthy as possible?
To feel proud of myself
To look and feel my best
To make it easier to become pregnant one day
To get healthy and clear skin
To age well
I can probably list 20 more, but in the interest of saving you time, I’ll just give you my biggest “why”: To look and feel like my best self.
What is your “why”?
You need a good why if you are going to change your health and your life. Knowing your “why” will help you when faced with temptation, get you through hard moments, and help you stick to a healthier diet.
Make a List of Reasons Why You Want to Be Healthier
Make a list of the reasons why you want to become healthier and follow a healthier lifestyle. After you have written down as many reasons as you could think of, try to identify the one “why” that stands out.
Write Down Your Biggest “Why”
Write down your biggest “why” and put it where you will see it every day. You can write it on your bathroom mirror, put it on a sticky note you keep on your desk, make it your wallpaper, and even put it on the fridge.
Maybe you’ll strike gold and write down a “why” that is so exciting that almost no other goal is needed. Maybe you can already think of one.
