Life Is Like A Box Of Chocolates…
Everyday presents its own struggles, some more daunting to overcome than others. This is a part of life itself. We have all learned at an early age that things do not always go our way. This includes our mental state when it comes to engaging in our fitness routine.
There are many things that can have a negative effect on the way we workout. These negatives can also prevent us from hitting the gym altogether. A poor performance at the gym is very dangerous. This can lead to improper form and injuries. We do not need to compound our stress with an injury that we can prevent.
When we are not engaged mentally, physical activity becomes a chore. No one enjoys chores. There are many stresses that can play the part of that mental anchor which holds us down; money, relationships, work, among many other issues we may face in our day-to-day lives.
How do we conquer these roadblocks? This is another mystery. Everyone handles problems in their own manner. Some people actually find running, lifting weights or bike riding great for stress relief. Others just can not find the energy to do anything. What would you suggest to someone who really enjoys exercising but is facing one of life’s curveballs?
