Secrets of Success

Exercise, Exercise, Exercise



It seems like when I feel the least like exercising (depressed/tired/stressed) I get the most out of it. I always feel much better after I've worked out. emoticon

    I also agree with your statement. Though there are times I just don't want to get out of bed in the morning due to pain/depression, etc. But, I remember a promise I made to myself and I slowly get up, have breakfast and do some sort of exercise. I try to aim for 10 minutes but end up doing at least 20 minutes a day and sometimes longer. Thank you for sharing.

    I agree. I call exercise my "happiness pill" because it lifts my spirits. - by VAINVT
  • I still reckon the best workouts are the most reluctant ones too, you get more of a sense of accomplishment and like you said it's mood enhancing emoticon emoticon emoticon - by NEW-CAZ
  • I agree, when I really have to push myself to get on the treadmill, I always feel so much better after I have completed my workout. - by LATTELUV
    You know what? This is absolutely 100% true! At least it is for me! More than half the battle is just getting started, but once I'm moving, look out!!! And afterwards, I feel good physically and mentally, as well as being proud of myself for the effort. Thanks for pointing this out! - by KALATHIA
  • Yes! So true! - by SAMCAKES
  • I agree! Even though I don't want to exercise, I try to remember the feeling I get is so awesome! Also, when I exercise regularly I sleep really well!

  • I agree. many times at the beginning of my exercise session I dont feel like getting started but by the time I'm through I've had the best session of the week. - by ROPATTON
  • I absolutely agree--making the right choice to overcome depression, stress, etc. through exercise causes those feel-good endorphins to burst out of those negative feelings. Pushing through all the stuff builds confidence to stay on track! Thanks for posting this great success secret!!! emoticon - by JANEXA
