5 Steps to change your exercise mindset

Your exercise mindset is key when it comes to repairing your relationship with your body and movement.

If you have a history of dieting, you likely have a complicated exercise mindset. Because of this, you may need to take a break from movement entirely before exploring it from a non-diet approach. However, changing your exercise mindset will ultimately help you break free from the diet culture way of thinking about exercise.

Placing weight loss on the back burner is the first step to separate movement from diet culture. This step can be scary, but it must not be skipped over. If you want to escape the trap of diet culture and experience freedom in movement, you need to put the goal of weight loss aside.

This doesn’t mean that you won’t desire weight loss again – you will. However, it will allow you to explore movement in a different way. You will begin to approach movement from a place of self-care, rather than fear. And you will gain body awareness and the ability to prioritize movement you enjoy.

5 steps to change your exercise mindset

Following the 5 steps to change your exercise mindset will allow you to reconnect to your body. You will also be empowered to make exercise goals from a place of self-care, rather than punishment.
