I used to think that you should have fun while exercising. I had trouble building an exercise habit since, let’s face it, exercise isn’t always fun. Sure, it’s often great, but sometimes it’s just boring and tedious.
Recently there has been a shift in my thinking. Exercising is like eating: you have to do it whether you like it or not. Realizing this has made it so much easier for me to go jogging. If running does not feel so good this time, it’s not a huge disappointment, it’s just life. Aftewards I’m pretty much always happy that I did it.
