Has this ever happened to you? You make new, healthy goals for yourself, you feel the motivation at first, but then it starts to fade and you fall into old habits. Or, you move to anew city alone and have to adjust to a new schedule or routine, but feel defeated a few weeks in? Or maybe you feel discouraged when you go online and it seems like everyone around you is so laser-focused on their own success.
It’s often easier to just think of a workout as something to “get through.” We groan, mumble, and begrudgingly tie up our shoes and try to distract ourselves until the workout is over. The problem with this is that we are completely letting go of the “why” in our fitness regimes and not implementing mindfulness.
