Each week on Facebook and Twitter, we share links to news and blog posts and articles that inspire us all to find the motivation to start with a program, stick with a program, love ourselves more, take better care of ourselves and find ways to feel better through movement.
It isn’t always easy. So we’re always on the lookout for good reads that you can turn throughout your day to find inspiration and a community of like-minded people who are experiencing the same challenges you are facing.
Here are a few links we loved this week:
- But I don’t want to work out: What most dedicated exercisers know is that once they establish the habit and reach a certain fitness threshold, working out gets easier.
- Learning to Listen to My Body: ANYONE can be an athlete. ANYONE can experience those endorphins that ebb and flow during a workout. You don’t have to be a marathon runner to know how a ‘second wind’ feels.
- Thanks Dad for Making Me Fit: “Whether he meant to or not, Dad instilled in us a lifelong love of using our bodies and a deep appreciation for all that they can do.”
- Exercise will change your life, and here’s why: “Exercise can reduce your risk of getting, or dying from, certain cancers. It can delay or avert Type II diabetes and it can help maintain your cognitive function into old age.”
- 5 Ways to Stay Motivated When Working Out Solo: “It may be easy to go a little lighter on yourself when no one is watching, but you’re also the only person who pays the price when you don’t hit your fitness goals.”
