I want you to just sit, for a moment, and think about how you feel, in your head and your heart and your body when you exercise. Just be, and breath, and sit with that thought pattern for a moment. And think, and remember, and recall, your feelings surrounding exercise.
Incidental or planned. Inside or outside. On dry land or in water. It doesn't matter what you perceive as exercise, just hook your brain into thinking it about it for a little while?
Before exercising, how are you talking to yourself? What emotions are popping up?
How do you feel. deep inside?
During exercise? Is your body hurting? Does it feel ungainly? Is there an echo of ease? A muscle or mental memory of how good this really really feels?
And afterwards? In the shower, back at your desk, moving on with your day, what are your senses doing? Try and figure out how you feel mentally, physically and emotionally?
I would love it if you wanted to share with me all of those feelings.
But I would love it even more if you just remembered those feelings next time you procrastinated over whether to go and get some exercise.
