Tune in as we continue on with our series on the 10 principles of joyful movement. This week we discuss principle 3 – Just say no to punishment.
We’ve been told for a long time-”no pain, no gain”. The myth is that the only way to get fit is to push ourselves to the brink 5-6 days a week. We’re told we need to be stronger than our excuses.
But I don’t think it’s working.
No Pain No Gain is the most overused “motivational” saying, that is really anything but.
Buying into this mentality gets us nowhere but injured and exhausted, so we inevitably give up.
In this episode, I’ll give you tools you can use to know the difference between challenging yourself and pain and how to achieve steady progress towards your goals without dreading exercise.
What you’ll learn by listening:
- The difference between “pushing” and pain
- How to tell if what you’re feeling is a “good hurt” or if you’ve crossed the line into pain.
- Tools you can use to change your mindset about movement so that it is fun, challenging, rewarding and SAFE!
