15 Reasons to Workout Today

Choosing to get up and drench yourself in sweat is not an easy decision. Excuses tend to abound when a workout seems too draining to endure. “Y’know I’m just not feeling it today” or “I just don’t know if I have the time” tend to be my top two. I’m starting to realize though that lack of workout motivation doesn’t always stem from a loss of focus or even a preference to laziness. It can stem from a loss of purpose.

I don’t always feel unhealthy. It is the lack of feeling unhealthy that can make it so easy to hit the snooze button on getting active. The way I see it though, we are all given two options. We can either make progress or make excuses. This is my attempt at making progress.

I wanted to make a post for the days in which eating potato chips in place of a workout convincingly appears to be a harmless act. If you can’t bare the thought of lifting a weight or doing a squat, but you know deep down that you should do both of those things and more, welcome to your personal “why” board. Here are 15 reasons you should workout today: 

  1. It will make you happier.
  2. It gives you a chance to vibe out to your favorite jams.
  3. It gets you [insert workout time here] minutes closer to your ideal body.
  4. You’ll feel accomplished afterwards.
  5. Because you’ll feel physically capable of doing anything and everything after.
  6. It will make you want to go to sleep earlier, which would help to keep you looking young.
