TLDR: Good Taste Brekky host Elerrina interviews Andrew Jobling for Mental Health Monday on the mindset surrounding movement.
Mental health is so important, and every Monday Good Taste Brekky hosts Elerrina and Jodie discuss mental health mindsets and how to conquer them with Andrew Jobling.
This week on Mental Health Monday, Elerrina and Jodie to talk to Andrew Jobling about the mindset surrounding movement and exercise.
Andrew is the author of seven published books and is on a mission to inspire people to ‘live a purposeful life of joyful longevity.’ He has a background in AFL football, and 30 years of experience in mindset, motivational speaking, and athlete training (to name a few).
From a mental health standpoint, Andrew says moving and exercise helps you feel confident, gain energy, be more focused and productive and overall happier.
“I think everyone that does it on a regular basis realises the enormous benefit it has,” Andrew said. “The goal is to not let exercise be a daily negotiation, it’s about creating a habit of it.”
Andrew draws on an anecdote of an obese man that was so incapacitated and couldn’t bring himself to exercise, but the moment he asked him “why?”, he realised he would change.
“The first step to changing your habits is that you need to know why,” Andrew said. “The second thing is, people go all-or-nothing and burn themselves them out, but you need to start simple, with small goals.”
Andrew stresses that if you take it one day at a time, find some accountability support and have some fun with it, you’ll win the day on moving and exercise mentally.
