Mindset! Here’s what I know
Here’s what I know:
For the most part you are sedentary or at best moderately active. You’re also incredibly busy and you wish that you had more energy and time. You like the idea of working out but the act of working out is a step you’re not quite ready to commit to because of time and money and you see exercise more as a luxury than a necessity.
Unfortunately for you and your body though it was designed to move and if you don’t move it soon it will start to let you down. Many of you are already experiencing this in the guise of health problems, depression and weight gain.
You need to move away from that exercise is a luxury mindset to one of “exercise is essential to my well-being and without it the quality of life is being compromised”.
There will be many days you don’t feel like exercising. I have them, we all have them, but it is those days it is the most important to go and exercise anyway. Start seeing exercise as something that is as important to your survival as eating and sleeping because it is.
Exercise doesn’t have to be about getting a 6 pack. For 99% of the population it shouldn’t be. It should be about looking after yourself and in turn being able to look after and be there for your loved ones.
Forget popular media and its portrayal of what fitness “should be” and just sit and think for a minute how you would feel if you could start to feel better about yourself by simply starting to move more.
