It happens to everyone on occasion: you tossed and turned all night, so you're too exhausted to lace up your walking shoes the next morning.
Or maybe you had a rough day at the office and you just want to go home and flop on the couch.
These are countless reasons why you might be too tired to exercise.
But here's why you should ignore them and exercise anyway:
It turns out that exercise can actually boost your energy.
It increases the amount of oxygen and nutrients that are delivered to your tissues, nudges up levels of energy producing mitochondria in your cells, and improves your sleep.
Moreover, it just makes you feel better by increasing your blood levels of endorphins- the feel good chemicals that are often credited for the runners' high
Here are some tricks to help you get started:
Mark exercise on your calendar and schedule it as an appointment.
Recruiting a workout buddy or doing things in a group-setting makes it more fun.
Lay out your exercise clothes the night before seeing your workout clothes ready makes it harder to skip.
Sign up for a group training class because if you reserve a spot, I can guaranteee you'll be less likely to cancel.
