Health and fitness
plans have several components. Include them all and you're in the best possible position to
succeed. Forget one of them, and you may have set yourself up for failure.
One of these elements stands out as much more vital to your success than
any of the others. In fact, if you want to carry out your plan successfully and reach your health
and fitness goals, be sure to include this essential ingredient.
Am I talking about nutrition? An aerobic component? Perhaps stretching? Resistance training? Or
even rest? No, no, no, no and no!
What is it then? Quite simply, it's the one essential component that's so crucial, that without it,
you're much more likely to face frustration, even failure.
This is the emotional element. Why is this so vital? Quite simply, because your emotional state has
far more to do with your success in sticking with your health and fitness plan than any other
You are going to have times when you're not very motivated, or you are distracted, or some stressor
knocks you off course. These circumstances are absolutely normal; everyone faces them.
What makes the difference between people who fall down, or fall off their plan, and those who get
up again and keep on trucking, is that one simple thing, again, the emotional element.
So whether the occasion for your new health and fitness plan is a new year, a new season, a new
job, a new relationship, make this component a central part of your health and fitness plan - right
up there with the nutrition, the aerobic aspect, stretching, supplementation, resistance training
What will you do when you're facing the inevitable emotional challenges that will arise? Go back to
your old habits? Or get the emotional support you need and move on toward your goals? Write that in
to your plan now.
Including that emotional ingredient will no doubt name names - the people you will call on to help
you get back on track.
Well, you may say, I can't afford a personal trainer. Or, my spouse doesn't really know how to
support me in this. Or, it's after the gym is closed and my friends are asleep that I need support
