We all regularly resolve to improve our diet, lose weight and/or get more exercise - but despite starting out with good intentions we lapse back into our old habits. This is because it's easy to start a behaviour, but hard to adopt it. We are creatures of habit; so lifestyle change requires honest intervention and the adoption of new behaviours.
Simply put, it's not quitting that works; it's switching. Behaviour change means new behaviour; otherwise force of habit wins again and again... until failing itself becomes the habit.
An obvious example of this is the hugely commercialised activity called 'dieting' - where the trying just never stops. As an old master once said; do or do not... there is no try. Dieting is both demoralising and ineffective; unless you train yourself into new habits, you will always lapse.
lovelonga is a new social fitness start-up with off/online integration based on research from psychology and sport. Among the most effective real-world motivational tools are goal-setting and social validation - that's why you increase your effort when in the gym, with peers or in competition. Committing is good, declaring your commitment is better - it's not something your lazy inner voice (we all have it) wants you to do. Social validation and goal setting, even to yourself, help you stick to your mission by keeping you upfront and unequivocal in your intent.
