Where Does YOUR Motivation Come From?

What motivates you? For me, it’s being told that I “can’t” do something. When I was in high school, the boys I wanted to date were the ones that my Dad refused to allow me to date.

Awareness, Examples and Fun: My Gateway to Healthy Living

I think knowing there are alternatives to the way we currently do things is important to changing bad habits. There are tasty treats out there that aren't bad for you, for example. There are activities out there that are good for you that don't feel like a chore. It's not hard to imagine this, but we're social animals. Nothing beats seeing this right in front of us, true as the sky above. ...more
