    EXERCISE

    Let’s start with the definition of exercise…

    physical action performed to make or keep your body healthy: It is performed for various reasons, to aid growth and improve strength, preventing aging, developing muscles and the cardiovascular system, honing athletic skills, weight loss or maintenance, improving health and also for enjoyment.

    • Shifting your mindset about exercise completely changes about how you feel before, during, and after you exercise. Cultivate the mindset of exercising to gain something, not to lose something…do it with a heart of self-love and not self-hate. 
    • Move every single day because you are able and because you want to feel better.
    • Find exercises/workouts that make you feel great and make you inspired to eat healthier, sleep better, and take care of your mind.
    • Set fitness goals that will help you stay accountable
    • Find a workout partner and make exercise a social activity
    • Take your time getting in to exercising and appreciate where you are in your journey. Focus on progress and not perfection. 
    • Find joy in becoming healthier
