Ok its time for an all out confession. I hate working out.
I know I am a wellness coach/nutritionist, but that doesn’t change the fact that I really don’t like exercise. Actually I hate exercise.Treadmill, elliptical, Zumba, BBL all encompassing any form of exercise. What’s a girl to do? Even yoga was hard for me to get into.
Shocked? You are not the first one to be.People just assume that I love to work out. They assume wrong.
I grew up as an athlete. I love sports, surfing, kite surfing, swimming, rock climbing, and yes yoga. But exercise uh-uh no way Jose.I think it just seems, I don’t know, pointless. I know it is far from pointless; the benefits for your body, mind and soul are immeasurable, yet…the motivation to go and walk around in circles with even my best of friends on a regular basis is just, intolerable.
So how the hell can someone like me stay in shape? Well, find something you love and do it!
We spend a lot of time in our Iives doing very serious, earnest activities. We work, we work out, we work on our weak spots. Work, work, work. Now work is a fine thing and is good and productive for all of us but sometimes, it seems like we may have lost the ability to play.Play is, at its heart, a time to improve yourself at many skills in a relaxing way. Juggling, video games, a kick around at the park are all fun ways to get better and improve yourself in a fashion that is relaxing and perhaps more enjoyable than other self improvement methods!Here at PWG, we are strong advocates of playing! Without enjoyment, life can be a hard grind that can become a tough psychological challenge.
Physically, playing is probably one of the best things you can do for your body. Jumping around, playing with the kids and messing around in the pool all give you better coordination, muscular adjustment and balance. Obviously, slack lining or juggling won’t get your body ludicrously...
