I have been known to come up with some pretty crazy reasons to exercise. Just check out my Twitter stream. I have a list of 1000 reasons to exercise and I tweet one almost every day. They aren’t the reasons you might be thinking! I guess we are all motivated by different things. In this post, I want to hear from YOU. Here is the question:
What is the #1 most important reason you exercise?
What I mean is: what motivates you? What do you get out of exercise? What is the thing that keeps you going day after day? After all, exercise requires time and effort, so something must be fueling you to stick with it. What? Be specific. So, for example, if you feel your reason is “good health” what do you mean specifically? Are you trying to avoid a certain disease that runs in your family? Lose weight? Avoid weight gain?
I figure if we each share our most powerful reasons to exercise, we will learn even more reasons to exercise for ourselves. We’ll start a collection of reasons to exercise. This can only help to strengthen our motivation, drive, and purpose. The more reasons the better. Every reason is a guidepost that reminds us of the direction we need to go.
Here’s what to do: in the comments section below, tell me the #1 most important reason you exercise.
I’ll take all the reasons you post and convert them into a word cloud. I can’t wait to see it. I might have to hang this one on the fridge.
In the meantime….
Reason to Exercise #1000: Because you CAN.
Whatever you do, keep moving…
