The human has the most advanced computer on earth – the brain. Maybe it is time to quiet the mind, and allow your brain to collectively realise, I HAVE CONTROL, not life. I CAN CHOOSE to feel better. Or you can choose not to.
Do you have 5 minutes?
[You just had 5 minutes and you chose to spend it on reading this.]
Its like procrastinating on your turn to wash the dishes – I can guarantee, if you just go and spend 5 minutes on washing dishes – you will be amazed to see that afterwards, you did more than you set out to – and most possibly, all the dishes are done!
I challenge YOU – go and spend 5 minutes on yourself. Do something that pushes your heart rate up. Just get started. Even if you can just do 3 minutes at a time.
Will you be astonished at what you were capable of? I suspect yes!!
Please take note: The only one to benefit from exercising is you! You might think others do, but it’s really just you.
