“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” I remember when I used to think of my workouts as something I "had" to do, not something I "get" to do.
When I started to understand that by taking care of myself first that I became a happier person, better wife, more compassionate friend, and a better business owner, I started re-framing the way I talked about my workouts. Are they physically any easier? Definitely not. But mentally, yes, much easier. Because it becomes more about how I feel and less about how I look.
