Are you sick of seeing #fitspo posts on your social media feeds? Do you get annoyed at friends who are constantly talking about their active and healthy lifestyle? One, you can unfollow them or two, leave them alone! Most people hate to admit it but if things bother you that much, it is something you are missing and crave for in your own life.
Why you should NOT shut up about your active lifestyle:
- Motivation (internal + external). Gym selfies, progress pictures, motivational quotes— if it is motivating you, chances are, you are motivating someone else as well.
- Accountability. Honestly, no one cares if you are going to go for a run at 6am tomorrow morning but if you post it on social media, you are most likely to do it because it’s out there. It doesn’t matter whether you are doing it for yourself or “saving face” (which I promise you, no one will remember), but the simple fact that you are doing it is all that matters.
- Sharing is caring. The only reason I was able to stick with my healthy habits was because of the countless blogs I read about fitness and motivation. Writing about fitness also keeps me motivated because there is a lot of research to do behind a single blog post which means I am constantly learning and being inspired.
Life is too short to be unhappy, bitter, negative and judgmental and that’s the camp we don’t belong in! Stop caring about what other people think and be proud of your lifestyle and what you are achieving for yourself. Do what works for you. Do what makes you happy.
