It can be tempting to treat your workout as an opportunity for some personal multitasking -- working your body while your mind wanders off to think about upcoming deadlines, family obligations, and dinner plans. But don’t let your mind wander too far! Exercise isn’t just a physical activity: It’s a mental one.
We’ve all heard it - slow and steady wins the race. So where does that go when it’s time to set fitness goals? Throughout my training so far, I’m seeing that the most common way to exercise is to do... the mindless stuff. Not necessarily physically easy exercise, but mentally lacking direction and oversight.
