Our brains are overflowing with all the things we need to do from work-related issues, family issues, personal issues, and more. These everyday stressors can affect our workout! Our cluttered minds cause us to shift away from what we are doing. During fitness, this means we work out on autopilot; just going through the motions. We allow every thought that has nothing to do with our present workout to wander in. Not being present during fitness causes us to enjoy that time less. We are just going through the motions and we don’t even allow ourselves to enjoy it.
Do you want to make fitness a part of your life? Exercise has multiple benefits. It can be hard to squeeze in that work out. Consistency is the key, and in order to start or keep up an exercise routine, we should look forward to it! We should choose a workout that we actually enjoy and that adds more to our life than just a better body image. Fitness isn’t one-size-fits-all. Everybody has a different personality which comes with different needs. We can get more out of a workout by having it serve our emotions, mood, and thoughts, in addition to our bodies. So in order to fall in love with your workout, take the quiz and find out what type will fire up your soul!
I am grateful for… the Holiday season. During the holidays, it is easy to fall into the trap of continuing the stress mode of our daily life. It can be easy to find new stressors relating to the holidays and/or keep holding on to all the past ones. Or, we can take the opportunity and shift our minds to a state of gratitude this holiday season.
