10 Ways to Motivate Yourself to Walk
Walking more will be a fine rebellion indeed against the general pressure to turn into a blob. When it comes to breaking through inertia, it's a matter of understanding how habits are formed - and changed. We are all creatures of habit it makes life easier , but you weren't born with habits. Each and every one had to be acquired, and practised until it was established. Some habits take years to acquire, like brushing your teeth remember those arguments?
Others only a few weeks or months. You can use the power of your unconscious mind to speed up the development of a habit that you want to have. Using hypnosis, you can warp time to allow yourself to experience many repetitions of a desired behaviour. It has been established that the brain does not distinguish between actual and imagined events, and will respond as if you had already actually carried out that behaviour that often.
What this means is that your brain and your body will behave as if you already are in the habit of walking out more every day. And, in turn, this means that actually getting up and going out for a walk, and just generally walking more, feels normal and natural to you, part of your everyday life.
Walk More is a great session to use to test this out for yourself. It will relax your mind, and get you through that rebellious switch easily and effortlessly.
