Social Media and Motivation

Posted Jul 02 2009 4:49pm

Yesterday I didn’t want to go running.  There was no reason, I was just feeling lazy.  Then I saw someone tweet about how good they felt about their workout that day.  That simple, 140-character message changed my whole mindset and later I went for a 6 mile run.  I felt great after and was glad I went.

Has social media –whether it be twitter, facebook, or a blog — ever motivated you to get out and exercise or help you make a better choice for a meal or snack?  It definitely has for me. 

So for those of you who post messages about your healthy lifestyle, keep them coming.  They help people more than you probably know.  Hopefully my tweets can do the same.  I’m on Twitter here.
