To maintain a habit, you need ongoing motivation to keep you accountable. AIA Vitality Ambassador, Ian Jones, says “Start slow and build on it. Don’t go out and try running a marathon in your first week, make it as easy for yourself as you can”
Set your sights on more manageable goals and work through achieving each one along the way. That sense of achievement you’ll get from hitting each one will boost your motivation and keep you going. Work out your ‘why’ and set small goals, small steps really do matter!
Whether you’re aiming for five kilometres, a marathon, or simply just to feel a bit fitter, make the journey as enjoyable as the destination with an upbeat playlist or a training session in a scenic location.
