Coach E here,
Emotion is created by motion. Exercise floods your body with happy chemistry (serotonin, epinephrine, dopamine and endorphin.)
People who make their fitness connection for life have become neurologically, emotionally and chemically anchored to how exercise makes them feel as opposed to how it makes them look. Over time exercise becomes something they get to and must do as opposed to something they should do.
It all starts with action. Every act of fitness (no matter how small) is a cause set in motion that connects you to the joy of movement on a visceral level.
Take away: Getting viscerally anchored to how exercise makes you feel is a key to lasting motivation and staying fit for life.
About: I want to help you live a fit and happy life you love. I am an award-winning peak performance coach, seminar leader and author who has helped hundreds of people take inspired action since 1995.
