Mikey Moon's health and fitness column: Don't lose patience with your process
This week’s health and fitness advice from Mikey Moon of Fortitude Fitness is not to lose your patience in a world of immediate results...
I speak a lot about patience and trusting the process.
People struggle with the concept of gradual progress – it isn’t fast enough and they want results yesterday.
I call this the Amazon effect. We are now so conditioned to getting things immediately. Need something tomorrow? Next day delivery.
Finish an episode of a series? Netflix has the next one ready to go. Want to ask someone a question? Send a text.
You see, we no longer have to wait for most things, which has made us more impatient when it comes to those we do still have to wait for.
Rather than trusting the process they are on, people are constantly looking to get somewhere faster.
This is why fad diets do so well in the current climate – people are willing to sacrifice sustainability for speed, and as a result they usually regain a lot of the weight they had lost.
Quicker is not always better, especially where fitness is concerned.
Make steady progress and get better each week.
That way, not only will the process be more sustainable and enjoyable... but chances are the results will last.
