Embrace Your Workout by Changing Your Mind
Do you know someone who’s a gym junkie? Do you have a friend who just loves running, no matter how much it wears them out? Do you ever wonder how these people can love something that hurts so much? Sure, you understand that these exercise routines and workouts get results, but you like the results, not the process, right? These people seem to actually enjoy the process, and they never give up. They’re always in great shape, and they never seem to falter. What’s their secret?
Well, some people are born with a drive to best themselves at every opportunity. Others have managed to lose a lot of weight or get in shape and never want to get back to where they were before. They’ve learned to embrace their new lifestyle because their old lifestyle was making them sick and fat.
How can you embrace your new workout regimen and make it your lifestyle? How can you be happy with the idea that you’ll be going to the gym, running, or going for a hard bicycle ride almost every day for the rest of your life? You have to change your mind.
Meditating can do wonders for your outlook on life in general, and specifically on exercise and diet. When you spend time quietly with your body, you’ll learn things about it. You’ll learn how to sit up straight to elongate your back and relieve tension. You’ll learn about your breathing and your heart rate. You’ll find that you’re more mindful of what your body’s made of, what you put into it, and what you get out of it. Before you know it, you may find that you really are one of those people who embrace the process as much as the results. Find your inner workout lover through meditation.
