Reach Your Fitness Goals With These Success Tips

By Vito La Fata

Are you trying to get in shape and lose some extra pounds? If so, then you may be ready for some helpful fitness success strategies to help keep you on the path to success. The good news is that there are several things you can change in your life to help you both in your fitness quest and in the other areas of your life.

Avoid the Age of Distraction. Was that your phone or was it mine? Let me answer that email, send that text, and just leave this quick voice mail, right after I check my Facebook. Sound familiar? We are sadly becoming a society of multi-taskers, and research shows it just doesn't work. And it actually ruins our health.

An interesting point on multi-tasking: there was a study done on how well we are able to multitask and how it affects our brains. What the study found is that while people are multi-tasking, they suffer a ten point drop in their IQ score! Is it any wonder that most of us are having a hard time getting the things done that we need to?

But there is more to the story. Researchers also did a study on what happened to the IQ of people when they get high. The results were interesting: people who get high only suffer a decrease of five points in their IQ.

The shocking conclusion is that it is not very effective to try to multitask. A better choice would be to just concentrate on one thing at a time and stick with it until it is finished. You become twenty eight percent less productive when you try to do too many things at once. So if we are going to use this to help you with your fitness goals, make sure that when you are working out, you focus on the task at hand rather than trying to do other things while you work out.

It is crucial to understand that those who are successful are often knowledgeable about all the thing pulling at them and trying to get them off focus. They work hard to stay focused and reduce the amount of noise that is around them. Imitate them and you will find greater success in your weight loss quest.
