It’s pancake day! Actually, sorry to be boring but I don’t like pancakes. What I do like about pancake day, however, is the seemingly magical motivation effect that comes from the following 40 days and 40 nights.
Although rent is used for religious reasons, many people use it to kick start their health, regardless of their religion. 40 days to get into a good habit, whether it is giving something up or taking something up.
I personally find lent gives me a clear timeframe in which my motivation stays much higher than any other time of the year. I tell people what I am planning in doing for lent and that keeps me going. It’s natural to fall off into an unhealthy lifestyle occasionally, but remember to use every excuse to get yourself remotivated, excited and ready to feel healthy, energised and generally fantastic. Yay!
