How about this: That workout kicked my butt!
What if I told you that changing the way you talk about exercise (or anything else that is hard), can change the way you feel about it? In a recent article on Greatist.com, Michelle Gielan, happiness research and founder of the Institute for Applied Positive Research, offers 6 tips for re-framing negative thoughts into positive ones.
While her tips are directed to the workplace, I'm convinced they apply to exercise and healthy eating as well. Consider these:
I love that I can exercise first thing in the morning, right in my own living room!
I am strong; Yes, I CAN!
Try it...you'll be happy you did.
