So, I know that initiation is probably the hardest part of sticking to a work out routine. And, if you are a regular reader, you know that I’m a huge believer in the power of exercise to help us with our attention. So, I do end up writing a bit on the subject. Well, here’s another one.
I’ve been trying to keep track of my workouts and how I feel so I can share any tips and tricks I can. One thing that I’ve noticed is 13 minutes. At 13 minutes I start to feel better. My anxiety lessens, my head clears, my focus ramps up, and I start enjoying the workout if I hadn’t been already. So 13 minutes usually leads to 30 or even 40 -50 minutes.
So, I ask you this, person who has trouble getting the couch: can you do something for 13 minutes that will make you feel better? I think you can. Worst case scenario: you work out for 13 minutes a day!
