For many people out there trying to become more energised and active they are terrified of committing to daily activity. It is so engrained in their minds that they might over train that they literally shy away from daily physical training and instead follow the herd and train two or three times per week.
If you really want to create energy, enthusiasm, and positive forward momentum in your life then start to move your body and breathe deeply each day with focus and you will begin to discover that which I am talking about.
All the systems in your body use energy. Pretty much everyone knows this and it often leads people to miss the boat entirely when it comes to getting themselves motivated, fit, and full of zest for life.
Of course the bodies systems use energy.
But guess what?
They CREATE IT as well!
People routinely forget this and it can lead to gross under training or simply performing the incorrect routines for that which they are after.
If you will allow me to get a little scientific for a moment, oxygen in the air has a very positive charge (imagine the positive pole of a magnet). Your bodily tissues and water therein act like the negative pole of a magnet.
Now, for those of you who are scientific you will know what this means!
Wherever you have a positive and negative pole there is the potential for ENERGY to be created!
So if you wish to feel more energised through exercise go against the grain a little and use your breath and body each day to access this energy and buoyant life force within you.
Harness your breathing and body in ways that energise and that you can do each day without having to take days off to recover. Your physical activity should be uplifting and enhance you physically AND mentally.
Consider this the next time you wonder why your training is not providing you with the fulfilling and rejuvenating experience you think it should be!
