Environmental Screening

Just a quick message regarding environmental screening, you’re wondering what that is ye? Well environmental screening is to do with removing all the negative influences in your life.

There are many potential negative influences to you exercising such as:

  • Television
  • Magazines
  • Spouse
  • Family
  • Friends

Obviously close friends and family can have a positive influence but in some instances if they don’t want you to exercise and lose weight it will be negative. Reasons for this may be they don’t want you to look better than them or even things such as they want you to be making their food instead. You aren’t going to remove these from your life but it is important to be strong and explain to them why you are exercising, you may even get them to exercise with you!!

Start by watching less TV, especially the news, soap operas and violent stuff. Do not watch 3-4hrs TV each night before you go to bed, it tunes your mind into the wrong things. Magazines with all new weight loss tips and pictures should be stayed away from as it makes you feel bad or forces you into unreliable dieting just because a celebrity is doing it, the best advice will come from your doctor or fitness instructor not from a magazine!

Your mindset and attitude towards exercise is vital in maintaining motivation to exercise, with the right mindset tremendous results can be achieved. So try and alter your negative influences and it will be a step in the right direction.
