We’ve all been there, when it hasn’t been your day and you just feel like giving up. Maybe you aren’t achieving your fitness goals as fast as you feel you should, or your career is not progressing the way you want. Finding the willpower to keep going can be difficult.
Here are four inspiring blogs to help get you back on track when you’ve hit your physical or mental wall.
1. Imperfection is more than enough
When you are struggling to find motivation it’s important to take a step back and know that complete perfection is a waste of time. Understanding that no one is perfect and mastering the art of imperfection will help you set achievable goals you can be proud of.
2. Understand your purpose
