How To Fall In Love With Working Out

beachI feel like work outs get a weird reputation. Some people go to the gym everyday, getting their reps in religiously, while many people have grown to despise it and don't think working out is for them. I feel like I am kind of in the middle, where I need to keep myself motivated by always switching up how I exercise. Ultimately, I wanted to write this post to shine a new light on working out. I honestly prefer to call it exercise, because you don't have to hit the gym for your daily exercise to be valid.

Earlier in the year, I really caught myself at a sluggish point. I kept on attending my weekly dance classes, but that was probably the only form of physical activity I got. Maybe it was stress from school, or just the freezing weather, but the idea of working out just never sounded appealing. Occasionally I got myself on the treadmill, and somewhat kept up with my ab routine, but I was not being consistent enough for any major progress. I'm happy I was not hard on myself, because it was just a dormant phase, but I got to a point where I just wanted to be more fit. 

Throughout the past few months, I can happily say that I have never been more disciplined with working out, and I feel a million times better. I feel happier, more energized, and much more like my best self. Nothing beats consistency. The only set routine I have is for my abs, but I see physical activity as a necessary part of life that truly plays a huge role in keeping my personal balance and harmony. Not only that, but I can receive it in so many forms, outside of the gym. That brings me to the next part of this post.

Many people in today's society have a negative outlook on working out because they think it is a dreadful chore. Contrarily, we are human beings that are created to move. If you are not moving your body, you are doing yourself a disadvantage. Don't think about how you "have" to exercise, think about how you "can", and are gifted with the ability to do so. I know exactly how it feels to lack motivation, but my best advice is to not think about it, and just start. 

When I feel myself getting stronger and gaining endurance, I just get so happy. Doing physical work is one of the most basic parts of life, and should be honored more often.
