I have been doing virtual exercise classes with an instructor that emphasizes how great it is that we can do the hard work. Yes, intervals can be painful, but let’s take a moment to realize that not everyone can do them and some day we will not be able to. How amazing that we get to work our bodies in such ways!
What if we apply this concept to other areas of our lives where we are doing hard things that we still want to do.
Have to give a presentation at work? Or do you get to and aren’t you grateful that you have a job?
Etc. Explore this frame of mind today and see what happens.
