I am not one of those people who jump out of bed in excited anticipation for my morning workout. However, I do love the feeling of taking care of myself, and the exhilaration AFTER a workout is complete. Therefore, despite the mental gymnastics in deciding if I should go to the gym or not, I do manage to get to my exercise class on time.
This process is a little like having a devil on one shoulder, and an angel on the other. One side is protesting and wanting to relax, while the other implores me to “Just Do It”, like the Nike commercials have been saying for years.
It’s empowering to exercise regardless of my mental debates, but I am always left wondering why I resisted in the first place.
What area of life do you find challenging, and how do you resolve it?
Give your debating mind a rest, and do what’s good for you instead.
