Staying fit can be difficult, but there are ways to motivate yourself to keep your workout routine, such as positive thinking, getting paid, signing a commitment contract. But, do you know the best way? It’s giving you a real reward. Sure, getting healthy and fit can be considered a reward, but having a glass of delicious smoothie or an episode of your favorite TV show is scientifically better. When you give yourself these tangible rewards, it hits something in your neurons that stimulates you to do more to get it.
