Find your Why

… and why is it so important?
Published October 1, 2017

You know what you want to do: Boost your health and well-being for the long haul. But it’s also important to figure out why you want that. Maybe you’d love to run around with your kids or finish a 5K or just feel good inside and out.

Whatever moved you to join WW—whether to shed pounds or improve your overall wellness—your “why” is what keeps you going when things get tough. The more meaningful and clear your why is, the more fulfilled you’ll be as you work towards your goals.

Finding your why

The more specific your why, the more it can bolster your mojo. Instead of, “I want to be healthy” maybe it’s, “I want to be healthy so I feel better when I wake up in the morning.”
When you know your why, write it down and post it somewhere you’ll see it often. (Keeping it by your toothbrush is handy.)

Your Why may change throughout your journey and that’s okay! Keep checking in with it and if it stops feeling powerful, choose a new one.
