Healthy habits are supposed to make you feel great and improve your quality of life. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
So why are so many people struggling to be “motivated” to get in shape? Why are so many diets and workout programs compromising people’s quality fo life rather than improving it?
The most basic answer comes down to the principle of hedonic adaptation. Hedonic adaptation is how your mind and body balance themselves out to maintain mental, physical and emotional balance.
If you use it well, you’ll discover you can be happier and live a higher quality of life every day. However, if you don’t understand it, you can potentially keep yourself down in the dumps no matter how successful you become.
