Hello Everyone,

Spring is here, and what a great time to begin a new walking program, attend a new exercise class or sign up for a nutrition program. The Healthpark offers many opportunities like these to motivate you to improve your well-being. 

Motivation is defined as the general desire or willingness of someone to do something. It is the process that inspires us to make a change or to work toward reaching a goal. Understanding there are different types of motivation may help you discover what will ignite action within yourself. Intrinsic motivation is what comes from within and centers on our desire to be better. Extrinsic motivation is influence by rewards, people or other outside forces. 

To spark your motivation, here are a few suggestions to consider: 

  • Set a new goal and begin working toward it in attainable steps, celebrating small successes. 
  • Move your body. Exercise is a great way to reenergize! 
  • Read a good book about a topic that interests you. 
  • Consider journaling. 
  • Schedule time to spend with a friend or loved-one. 
  • Learn a new skill; learn to play an instrument, begin to paint, or study a new language. 
  • Don’t procrastinate. Develop a plan to accomplish what you need to get completed and set deadlines. 
  • Rest your mind and your body. Ensure you are getting enough sleep. 

For more ways to get motivated with your wellness plan, speak with one of our experts about resources to help you achieve your goals. Also visit for additional resources on motivation and other well-being tools.
