You know you should work out, but some days it’s just hard to find the motivation. The short term benefit of zoning on the couch in front of the TV seems far greater than the long term benefit of getting in shape and getting healthy.

Or sometimes your life is so busy, there’s no time to zone on the couch, so the idea of finding time to exercise is even more daunting.

But remember that getting in shape is not the only benefit of exercise. If you lack energy, exercise can increase your metabolism and give you more get-up-and-go juice.

And those endorphins to help you feel better about life in general? I’ll have some of that, please!

Exercise can feel hard sometimes, whether it’s the initial act of adding exercise to your life, the daily “I should exercise now”, or the actual workout. But thinking about how it makes you feel when you’ve exercised can help you find the incentive to get up and get moving.

I saw this and loved it. I know I’m going to use it for inspiration.
