Motivation can come and go - like the change in seasons or ebb and flow of
the tide. So may your reasons for participation in activity. When
you were a child - you enjoyed to "play" with others. As a
teenager the social significance may have been replaced with dreams of

you. Well, why not all three - use what ever reason you can find to remain
active. Better yet, employ several reasons.
So many strategies, many reasons to motivate or move yourself!
