By Vito La Fata

Are you trying to get in shape and lose some extra pounds? If so, then you may be ready for some helpful fitness success strategies to help keep you on the path to success. The good news is that there are several things you can change in your life to help you both in your fitness quest and in the other areas of your life.

One of the first things you can do is to try to resist too much distraction in our world filled with distraction! Our phones are ringing, we have emails coming in, texts bombarding us and voice mails to listen to. We are trying to multi-task, but it is not working very well. It is also bad for our health.

There was actually a study did that demonstrated how poorly multitasking actually works in the real world. The researchers found that when people multitask, they actually lose 10 points in their overall IQ score assessment. This explains a lot, does it not? Even though we are trying hard to multitask, it just is not having the results that we desire.

Now here is where this gets interesting; they also measured the IQ drop of a person who gets high. And sad to report, a person who smokes dope, their IQ only drops 5pts! So the sad reality is that we are a nation walking around dumber than if we were stoned!

The truth is that multi-tasking simply does not work very. It is smarter to simply focus on one thing before moving on to something else. You actually lose 28% of your productive energy when you try to multi-task too much. Now, to make this relevant to your fitness, let's think about your time spent at the gym. If you are in a workout session, give yourself fully to it and do not try to multi-task while you exercise.

It is crucial to understand that those who are successful are often knowledgeable about all the thing pulling at them and trying to get them off focus. They work hard to stay focused and reduce the amount of noise that is around them. Imitate them and you will find greater success in your weight loss quest.
