Individuals need to feel that a wellness program fits with their personal goals and beliefs. We need to be motivated to set personal goals and benchmarks.
Motivation is a personal matter. Telling a person that s/he needs to reduce their weight by 50 pounds—which they probably already know—doesn’t work.
So what motivates lifestyle changes?
I want to fit into my jeans and most of the clothes that are hanging in my closet.
I want to have more energy for my family such as playing with my children or grandchildren.
I want to wake up refreshed every morning instead of tired and muddling my way through the day.
I want the energy and confidence to write the book that I am burning with passion to share with the world, that I don’t have the time to write today.
I want to have more money so I can visit Antarctica, something I’ve dreamed of for years.
My doctor tells me I have to make healthy lifestyle changes or else…
Even at the start, when individuals have just replaced a bad habit with a good one, they feel better right away, both physically and emotionally since they’re taking care of themselves and feel good about it.
