When sticking to the plan in the gym, this will actually affect the way your brain exercises in other areas of your life.
I always preach that the fitness lifestyle changed my whole life…. It really did. Researchers found that a healthier lifestyle increases the executive function in the brain. Sticking to the fitness lifestyle helps to develop the part of the brain that has the ability to exert self-control.
Self-control to stick to a diet, to stick to a workout regimen and the daily cardio, this will help you achieve your goals outside of the gym as well. Studies found that physical activity and executive function work together to create a positive feedback loop.
Harness this positivity and create a positive cycle. From getting up early to getting that workout in, to eating healthy and having a good relationship with food. Fitness can alter your physical and your psychological patterns in your brain.
Remember 21 days until a task becomes a habit.
