#MondayThoughts: Let’s get physical


Hey, get your mind out of the gutter. I’m a proper social distance lady. I am, OF COURSE, talking about exercise and nothing that requires fewer than six feet of distance.

I don’t know about you, but for me, less movement in general has made my workout more challenging. I think it’s very easy to put off exercise in these circumstances, or to melt into ourselves, returning to our native gelatinous slug state.

What? You mean I’m the only gelatinous slug around here? I should really talk to my travel agent, I don’t know what kind of planet they sent me to.

Anyway, this morning I mentally whined through about the first third of my workout. Or two-thirds. Probably two-thirds.

But by the end, when I finished, I felt amazing and calmer. Much calmer.

So sticking to or even starting an exercise routine will be key in getting through this. You probably know I’m partial to Daily Burn, but there are more and more online workouts available as the days go on. To help to stick to it:

  1. Pick something you like doing. This isn’t punishment.
  2. Try to do it at the same time every day.
  3. Pay attention to how you feel afterward.
  4. Be kind to yourself. This isn’t punishment. It’s self-care.

And with that, I hope you have a lovely Monday.
