Pinterest-Worthy Workout Mantras to Power Every Part of Your Life
Get on Up
Sometimes getting started is the hardest part! But once you've picked up that first set of weights, or began working on a project you've long put off, that finish line will finally be in sight. (Don't let a busy day prevent you from getting to the gym. Try these 5 Quick-Start Morning Workout Moves to start exercising the second you wake up.)
You Can Do It!
We all need a little push sometimes to keep us on track with our fitness—and our jobs, and our love lives, and our budgets, and, well, more. But simply thinking you can do anything you put your mind to? You're halfway there.
Go for Great
Yeah, it’s tempting to stick to your comfortable workout routine, or stay in a job that’s going just okay. But don’t be afraid to try something tougher or go for that promotion.
Find Your Edge
Remember this poster from Etsy shop QuoteAPrint if you’ve got ambitions to see the world—or to cross the finish line with a PR. We've all heard it before, but it's true!
Decide to Try
Resolving to get stronger or deciding to learn a new skill (speak French, play the piano, or actually try hot yoga) starts with two words: “I’ll try.” (Looking for ideas? Check out the 17 life skills every woman should know by age 30.)
Push Yourself Harder
Do it at the gym and on the job. Don’t wait for your boss to light a fire under you to push harder. Light the fire yourself.
Small Efforts Matter
Like the Under Armour ad says: "You are the sum of all your training." But it's true in training and in life—small acts of love add up.
Remember: You always have a little more strength—and a little more kindness—to give.
Think In the Future Tense
Whether it’s a workout or getting a good night’s sleep, do your future self a favor.
When you know what you value more (a strong body over drinks with friends, feeling good over a heavy but delicious meal) it’s easier to make good choices.
