I have to confess, I have a love/hate relationship with the gym. I always have to spend a while to convince myself to go and workout. When the convincing works and I go, I always feel SO GOOD. Here are my reasons to encourage you too!
Reason 1: You are preparing for your next adventure
A while back when I went on my Atlas Mountain adventure, I got tired after few minutes of climbing and I just dragged myself. I didn't get to enjoy it as much because I was so tired and my body was aching. I don't want the lack of my fitness and stamina stop me from enjoying physical activities on my travels. So, while I workout, I imagine endless hilly walks and fun hikes. That usually gets me going.
Reason 2: You are giving yourself a break
With the amount of blogging, photo editing and writing I do, I could easily spend my whole day and night in the same posture staring at my laptop. I am not even kidding, I will even eat at my laptop sometimes. Getting up to hit the gym or workout gives me a much needed break.
Reason 3: Better immunity for better travelling experiences
Working out builds your immunity and makes you stronger, which leads to better travelling experiences. Getting sick while travelling is the absolute worst.
Reason 4: More Energy for longer productivity
I don't know if you feel this too, but some days I wake up with such low energy levels. I noticed that working out increases my energy. I always feel so awake and alert after a workout, which is win win because I get to be productive for longer.
Reason 5: Great body
l mean hello? Who wouldn't want that and workout does help tone you up. Though a healthy diet is also needed.
Added Bounce: Gym selfies.
Ok, I know it's vain, but selfies are fun and it is good to share and motivate others. See there is always a positive spin!
PS. You don't have to go to the gym to workout, you can do it at home too!
