I’m living, I’m living, I’m living.
It’s all in your head. Truthfully, what is in our heads dictates so much of our success in life. And further more, what we define as success. This holds true for fitness and health just as much as anything else.
Take for example, a tough workout, run or hike. You are sweating, your heart rate is up…still and you are working HARD. What is in your head? What are you telling yourself? So many times at that moment, clients say to me “I’m dying!!!”
Really?!!? Just think on that for a minute.
You are literally the opposite of dying. You are pushing your body to get stronger, your muscles to contract and give you power, your heart to pump more blood through your body, more oxygen is moving into your lungs, you are using your body for what it was made for. Your chances of dealing with chronic diseases like diabetes, heart failure, high blood pressure and so many others go down significantly every time you exercise. You are truly, literally, in every sense of the word LIVING during your hard workout.
I challenge you to change your mind set. Relish the fact that you are physically able to do the workout, that doing this workout will make you stronger for the next one, that your body will thank you for with more energy for every day tasks in the near future.
Change that mantra in your head to “I’m living, I’m living, I’m living” and see what happens. It takes practice to change our mental habits as well, this one is worth it.
Repeat after me, “I’m living, I’m living, I’m living.”
