Sometimes a little encouragement can be just what you need to keep going. Martial arts training lessons requires your dedication to persevere even when you don’t think you can continue on, or maybe a challenging life event seems to want to stop you attending class regularly.
- The first step is to recognise that it’s a challenging time for you.
- Next, set a schedule to guard your training time. Don’t let anything get in the way. Remember this is “you” time. You are a better person after each workout, physically and mentally.
- Remind yourself of previous challenges you have overcome. Know that “motivation follows action”
I am reminded of a quote by Arnold Schwarzenegger; “Training gives us an outlet for suppressed energies created by stress and thus tones the spirit just as exercise conditions the body.”
