Week Four Behavior Change Project
Here are three things you can try this week:
- Journal: How do you feel right after your workout? And how do you feel after you clean up and have a chance to rest? Then, how to do you feel the next day? How is this different from the days when you don’t work out? – Try answering these right after you actually work out instead of how you ‘think you feel.’ You might be surprised!
- Ever heard of ‘Runner’s High?’ Ever experienced it? I never thought this would be something I would experience during my workouts because I usually don’t run too fast, just for long bouts of time. Boy, was I wrong! This can be just the kick you need to get ‘addicted’ to running! (Or walking, jogging, weight training, etc.) Try pushing yourself to run a bit faster, or a for a longer amount of time right when you think you can’t go any more. This is the exact time you may experience a ‘runner’s high.’
- Be Patient. You spend all day long hurrying to do this, hurrying to do that, and sometimes you may feel like you have to hurry through your workout. Try making an extra effort to be patient during your workout. Get to the gym or wherever you go to exercise, and take a deep breath. This stuff takes time!
