Your Challenge This Week:


By Bernadette Kathryn, LMT, IHLC



People often say that motivation doesn’t last.

Well, neither does bathing.

That’s why we recommend it daily.

Motivation is a psychological feature that arouses a person to take action towards a desired goal. It can be considered a driving force; for example, hunger is a motivation that sparks a desire to eat. Motivation is the purpose that fuels an action into something bigger!


Motivation has been shown to have roots in physiological, behavioral, cognitive, and social areas. Motivation may be rooted in an impulse to improve well-being, minimize physical pain and maximize pleasure. It could also originate from specific physical needs such as eating, sleeping or resting, and having great sex too, ooh-la-la 🙂


Motivation is an inner drive to behave in a certain manner. It’s can be the difference between waking up before dawn to get moving on a goal and lazing around the house all day. The inner conditions such as wishes, desires, goals, promote movement and action in a particular direction or behavior.
