applications for workout

You know what the real problem behind getting fit is? We whine before we even try anything.

“I can’t do this; it’s so hard.”

“I don’t have the energy for it. I’m already stressed with work.”

“I haven’t got the time for it. I’ve too much on my plate.”

Thing is, we don’t have the right to say that something is difficult if we haven’t really tried it out – ever.  Exercising is not at all difficult. And contrary to common opinion, it does not needlessly add more stress. In fact, getting sufficient exercise promotes the production of happy hormones which is actually helpful in relieving stress (read more). So exercising on “slumpy days” is actually beneficial for you. It can greatly help you improve your vitality and mood. Sure it’s going to be challenging, but I wouldn’t go as far as saying that it’s difficult or time constraining – especially with the tech we have nowadays.
