If you’re feeling like you’re in a bit of a funk – whether it be fitness related or just life in general – fitness star Emily Skye has a few words of wisdom you need to hear.
The 32-year-old, who is currently 21 weeks pregnant with her first child, has taken to Instagram to share her best tips for staying motivated and positive.
“I think of all the things that I'm grateful for and I focus on them,” she writes.
“Instead of looking at what other people have that I don't have, I look at what I already have.”
“There's a difference between seeing other people's successes as inspiration and comparing yourself to them then allowing yourself to feel down because you don't have what they've got. I truly believe comparing yourself to others & focussing on what you lack is unhealthy.”
As well as ditching the comparisons, she says consistency helps.
“You don't get fit by seeing a personal trainer once a week and that's all you do.”
“If you want to be fit & healthy then you've gotta keep yourself motivated & on track every single day. Set goals, plan how you'll achieve them and commit yourself.”
“Motivation doesn't just come to you.. you don't just "find it" and it stays there - you have to create it every day. It's your responsibility!”
And finally? Don’t sweat the small stuff.
“Take control of what you can control and try to let go of what you can't and count your blessings!”
Take notes, people – these tips have clearly paid off for her!
