The Ritual of Exercise
Studies continually show productivity gains in the workplace outweigh the time spent exercising, we function better in all aspects of life when we are fit. When life gets so busy, you cannot afford NOT to exercise, so rely on structure more than motivation. You HAVE to get up and go to work everyday, your new thought should be you HAVE to exercise to be able to function at a high level at work everyday. On days when you just don’t seem to have the energy to workout rely on the ritual of regular exercise, just like the other rituals you have set up in your life, and it will take over. Are the rituals you have set up in your life leading to a longer life or a shorter, illness ridden life, it’s your choice. Just show up and begin to create the ritual of exercise, the payoff will astound you, just look around at the people who do exercise, and the people who don’t, it will be obvious.
“The sustaining power of rituals comes from the fact that they conserve energy” Dr. Jim Loehr
