Finding the Fun Factor!
Audrey Hepburn once said, "I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner." I think many of us get quite serious about fitness and our goals. Of course, keeping fit and healthy is important, but if it's something we need to spend a great deal of our time doing, why wouldn't we want to make it something we can be excited about? I believe that if we are to have the hope of keeping up with our workouts long term, then we need to find a way to increase the fun factor.
Nutritionist, Karen Lugay addresses the issue, stating that: "Fun in exercise fuels long-term desire. Most people say that they have a determination to exercise, but determination is greatly mind-directed. Let's face it, we can easily get caught up in the "minefield" of our minds. Determination may seem great on the outside, but I feel it bears too much weight on the mind, and not as much on the heart and soul which really are our true driving forces."
So, I encourage you all to find a type of exercise that you can look forward to. For Audrey, it was working out at the ballet barre. Yes, exercise is good for you, but it should make you feel happy too. Perhaps Pilates will be your exercise of choice? I've included a Free lesson to enjoy, and I'd love to hear your thoughts on this as well, and so I encourage you to interact with our very jovial group!
