Exercise. There are so many options these days. You really don’t even need to leave your house to exercise. The number of online options is incredible and the prices keep dropping. I exercise because it helps me stay in shape, but mostly I exercise because I love the feeling of being strong. When I feel strong physically, I feel strong mentally and emotionally as well. Exercising, for me, increases my ‘can do’ attitude and makes life better and easier.
I know some people do better in a group environment – so do that if it works for you! Find a local gym with a class that you like. We all know that in order to exercise regularly, you should enjoy what you are doing. If you need a bunch of people and loud music, find a cycling studio or a Zumba class. If you want peace and quiet and light movement, you should probably check out Yin Yoga.
I love the ability to pilates and yoga myself into my mornings without having to spend the time leaving the house. Living in a city without a car, I need to factor in travel time. I don’t always enjoy traveling 30 minutes to exercise for 60 and then travel back 30 minutes. The class has to be worth it (and I LOVE fitbox).
I use two places for the majority of my exercise when I don’t go to they gym due to their ease and availability:
I love the option of 10-15 minute classes because it allows me to check off exercise for the day and starts my day off feeling strong.
