Find fitness with fun dancing. It is fun and makes you forget about the dreaded exercise.
Fitness needs to be perceived as fun and games or we subconsciously avoid it.
For exercise, I now run with my chocolate Lab puppy, Oscar.
I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.
I think if you exercise, your state of mind – my state of mind – is usually more at ease, ready for more mental challenges. Once I get the physical stuff out of the way it always seems like I have more calmness and better self-esteem.
