By now we all know that working out is “good for us”. When we think of why it is easy to just brush over the benefits like lose weight, look good, be healthier and so on but taking a look into the specific things that exercise does for our mind, body and spirit can totally reignite your motivation to actually get into the gym and get your sweat on. I keep a copy of this list beside my computer that I look over and re-read on a regular basis, I even take the time to re-write it now and then just to make sure I keep this information top of mind. Knowing that a workout is literally changing my life in so many ways lights a fire under my ass in the best way possible:)
