Optimism Works ~ Exercising and Optimism Go Hand in Hand

“Research shows that athletic people are much more optimistic than their sedentary counterparts. Half an hour to an hour of brisk walking or jogging several times a week should do the trick.” (Source)

Having trouble exercising? Is it too hard? You don’t like it? You don’t have time? Those are four excuses. A friend told me, we do what we want to do, we find excuses for what we don’t want to do. What if you turned it around and found excuses to work out. For example, If I exercise I’ll sleep better. If I exercise I’ll be alive to walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding. If I exercise I’ll be able to enjoy better sex with my partner. You get the idea.
