How To Reframe Your Relationship with Exercise | Romper

Must Read

Exercise motivation is important according to Kelly McGonigal, Ph.D., a psychologist at Stanford University and the author of The Joy of Movement, when we exercise primarily out of a sense of obligation, the guilt and pressure may interfere with the body’s reward system and blunt some of the benefits.  

When you exercise, it frequently leads to an experience where you are feeding shame, self-criticism, or fear. In order to combat diet culture and the notion that working out is mostly about looking a specific way, Goldberg advises creating social media feeds that highlight a variety of bodies and fitness facts. This not only “changes the visual cues that we see daily,” as she puts it, but it may also start to rewire our value system for fitness. 

Revamp your social media feeds. 

Go on a quest for joy. 

At the end of a new workout, ask yourself three questions. 

Exercise to do good for others. 

Savor the experience of moving just for you. 

Create a feeling of belonging.
