Getting motivated

“ My doctor is recommending changes in my lifestyle. How can I find the motivation for these? ”

Quit smoking, exercise, follow a special diet, take your medicine: such recommendations are often hard to implement in the long term, despite their justification and your doctor’s insistence. To summon up the will to act, you need to be convinced, believe you can do it, and receive support. Relations with your doctor play a big role in your ability to change.
