Comment on Motivational Monday: The Greatest Weapon Against Stress is Our Thoughts by Sapna.
Thanks for your thoughts, Sean! Here are my answers:
1) Actually, I don’t find that I “struggle” to schedule in workouts at all or rush to them. I love working out.If I’m exhausted and have to miss a cardio or strength session in my calendar, I simply do that and am honest about it. Both my trainers and I are okay with that flexibility, and reporting it to them keeps me accountable.
2) Yes, I understand meditation would be a long term commitment and I think it’d be a challenge, but I love challenges. So, I will add it to my goals list!
3) No, I don’t think relaxing yoga is lazy at all; it’s simply a flexibility and balance exercise (instead of strength, cardio or endurance), which I’d like to get better at. I wasn’t relaxed a single time in 5 years of doing 90 mins of Bikram every Sunday. I’m going to swap one of my optional workouts out for a slower yoga to see what effect that has on stress.
