I consider myself a lot of pretty impressive things – but an athlete is not one of them.
The only physical game I’ve ever won was dodge ball back in 5 th grade. And to be honest, it’s mainly because the boys took each other out one by one, leaving me to win by default. I was a cheerleader in high school, but it was for the basketball cheerleading squad, which (I’m not gonna lie) was kinda known for being the less talented of the school cheerleaders. It was basically just glorified dancing, no tumbling knowledge required.
All this being said – I honor my body’s need for exercise.
And that’s what is great about exercise. You don’t have to have balance (I fall over just standing up sometimes, so good thing!), you don’t have to have speed, or any real skill to start. You can take it slow and build those qualities as you go – that’s the point.
There’s only ONE thing you have to have before you can start a workout program. It’s not bulging muscles or a firm booty – in fact, it’s not even something that you can see!
It’s the proper mindset.
Without a mindset that is focused and determined to stick with a workout plan, the only progress you’ll see is your stomach progressing to a larger size!
So how can we prepare our minds for a healthy exercise program? And most of all, how can we use our minds while we exercise to make the most of our workouts?
I have 4 mindful exercise tips that I am going to share with you today that will transform the way you view your workouts. These are workouts FOR THE SOUL.
