Moticise (or Motivational Exercise) is a high intensity cardio workout that will get you in shape while helping you create, plan, and live your dream life.
Sonia is sharing her 5 steps to working your body and resetting your mind:
What if I told you I have a strategy that would help you achieve any SMART goal you set?
What if I said it could get you in great shape, too?
What if I said it was fun?
Would you believe it?
It’s not too good to be true. In fact, it’s the best way to reach a goal. It’s called Moticise—motivational exercise—and it’s based on cutting-edge science, proving that exercise is an optimal time for focus, learning, and creativity. Brand new research is showing that physical activity can actually rewire your brain. By incorporating mindset into your movements, you’re training your mind and your body to reach your goals.
Want to try it?
Start with a SMART goal you want to achieve—something that’s specific, measurable, actionable, relevant, and time-based. Maybe you want to lose ten pounds by July, or maybe you want to send your resume out to five new job openings by next month.
Then, do each exercise below for 2 minutes. Set a timer if you want to, but don’t worry about the clock. The important thing is to ask yourself these questions and think through each step.
* Jog in place.
Imagine you’ve already accomplished your goal. That’s right—you’re done! Visualize yourself having achieved your goal, in as much detail as you can.
How do you look? How do you feel? What else around you has changed?
Feel the excitement, the accomplishment—that’s yours! You earned it. You worked hard, and now you can enjoy the results. Congratulations!
* Squat jumps (jump up, then land in a squat).
What are some things you have already in place to help you reach your goal?
We’re so programmed to know what we don’t have. But what about the things we do have?
Everything—no matter how small it seems—counts. Even if it’s just an idea, or a desire—don’t underestimate that.
A degree? Life experience? Support? People who believe in you?
Reach up—grab those things! What’s one more thing you have?
* Climb a ladder (jog in place; reach your hands up, like you’re grabbing rungs.)
What do you need, to make your goal a reality?
Is it more training, more practice?
A mentor, a coach, a teacher? More education? A better resume?
Keep reaching, keep climbing!
Maybe, like a lot of us, you need more confidence. Maybe you need to change your beliefs.
* Get down on the floor and do some push-ups!
What’s stopping you?
What’s keeping you down, stopping you from working toward that goal?
“I don’t have enough time or money”? “I’m too young” or “I’m too old” or “Somebody else can, but not me” – sound familiar?
Those are just beliefs – they aren’t your reality!
With each negative belief you feel, get rid of it! Push it away. Then, tell yourself the opposite. “I AM good enough,” “I’m exactly the right age,” “Why NOT me?” THAT’s your reality. Feel your arms getting stronger with each push-up.
* Sprint in place—you’re almost there!
If you were no longer plagued with excuses, doubts, and fear…what would you do?
Pick one thing. See yourself doing it. Is it making a phone call? Is it revising your resume?
See yourself finishing that step. Now, when will you do it?
Now, consider the next step. Visualize yourself doing that. Feel how easy it is.
When will you do it? Remember, it’s not too good to be true. In fact, it’s the best way to reach a goal.
