Many people find it difficult to commit to exercising. One of the reasons for this is being focused on wanting to look a particular way which may not happen for 6 months.
If you show up for each session with your end goal in mind, you might find yourself getting frustrated or impatient because you know you still have a long way to go.
On the other hand, you could instead focus on the endorphins, the way exercising makes you feel. If every time you feel a little resistance to begin a workout you remind yourself of how good you’ll feel once it’s done, that might be all the motivation you need.
The art of learning to laugh, at yourself.
Imagine you’re at a comedy show and the comedian is making a joke about someone in the crowd, you’d probably laugh along with everyone else (granted it was funny).
But what if the joke was on you, would you squirm or would you laugh.
So often many of us are unable to find the humour in our lives. It was something I used to struggle with but I’ve found that life is a lot smoother when you’re not so serious.
Even the other day I found myself laughing at something in my life that I’d have been really serious and furrow browed about 5 years ago.
And I could choose to remain furrow browed but it’s not as fun. I don’t think life should be taken so seriously to the point where you’re wound up like a super tight spirally thing.
I’ve tried it and it was terrible. That’s why I had to find another way.
If your skeptical, try it once and see how it feels.
Plus laughing releases endorphins, the brain chemical that makes you feel good.
