Before I get started, I want to say that fitness is not the only option to love and take care of your body. But, it is a part of me and what I use as a tool to show myself consistency and guidance. Not only does fitness help me physically, but this drive to push myself to be active leads me emotionally and spiritually.
What’s authentic about fitness is that it’s a choice. No one can force it onto you, it’s completely up to you to lead a fit lifestyle. Everyone can create their own definition of what it means to be healthy. To me, fitness gives YOU the power and it gives YOU the control to own your body and push yourself towards improvement. I usually discover that I am capable of so much more than I originally thought. You can do whatever you think you’ll enjoy. If you enjoy watching tennis then go for it! It’s easy to start. If, for example, you live in DC then just search “Washington DC Tennis Lessons” and get started!
It guides me in the process of daily growth and becoming better than I was the day before. Also, working out is a great stress reliever. There’s nothing better than heading to the gym after a long day and sweating out negativity. Working out before you start your day full of classes, work, and other responsibilities puts my mind in a state to only accept positivity. This helps me stay focused on what’s important.
So, I encourage you to fit time into your schedule and live a healthier lifestyle. This doesn’t have to look like the gym and lifting weights. You can make it what you what it to be! Go on a walk, make a nutritious meal, or take a trip to the gym. It’s your choice. Fitness is an outlet meant for taking time to invest in yourself.
