There's a lot of information out there about how to eat right and get in shape. By now, most of us have a pretty good handle on what changes we should make in our lives. The problem is we don't know how to get ourselves to actually make them. Whether we're trying to cut out processed foods, get fit, or lose one bad habit or another, the biggest obstacle is always mental. Everything we want to do in life requires discipline. And like strength, flexibility, and endurance, it can be built up over time. You just need some tricks to keep you motivated until the changes you've made become their own motivation. By then, you'll be on your way.
