Exercise Shouldn't Feel Horrible

A good workout

A good workout

Suffering is not always part of exercise. Sweating, breathing hard, and being exhausted afterward are not measures of effectiveness or progress.

Hard workouts should be mixed with easy ones to create a whole program. Some days you will do hard workouts, but most of the time, an exercising program barely feels like hard work.

How to avoid ‘precrastination’
  • Ask yourself if a task can benefit from added time. Those that require creativity, thoughtfulness, or emotion will need a slower response.
  • Identify the tasks you can rush through.
  • Keep a calendar and to-do list. Externalizing what's cluttering your mind will leave you with energy to channel elsewhere.
