Fitness is so much more than exercise. ..It's a catalyst for positive changes, and it affects EVERY aspect of your life.
Fitness has taught me:
1. Discipline: sacrifice an immediate pleasure for long lasting results.
2. Courage: Show up, even when you don't want to.
3. Focus: exercise helps you block out distractions. Nothing will stop you from reaching your goals.
4. Patience: it's a lifestyle, not a 14 day detox.
5. It's therapeutic....
Obviously, I love to work out, but for as far back as I can remember, I always leaned into fitness to help overcome obstacles or challenges in my life. It gave me an escape from reality, it gave me self-care time for my mind and it was a great stress reliever. I feel grateful that I learned these lessons at such a young age.
If you find yourself struggling right now, (you're not alone...)...Maybe it's time to lean into fitness and start making some positive changes in your life.
