As I'm getting older there are so many parts of my body that I have to look after and exercise – it can be hard keeping up with them all
I have a full length mirror in my bathroom. I stand naked in front of this mirror every morning and whatever negative point I first notice about my body – I make this the body part that I focus upon for that day – or I just get totally depressed! (only joking) - but some days I do look in the mirror and don't know where to start.
If I am having one of those days where nothing seems to be that great - rather than be despondent and not bother doing anything I decide to do just one thing – anything that I fancy doing that day. It can be as little as a 30 second exercise to help my posture. Then invariably once I have done that I can start to feel more positive and re-evaluate my body to see what would benefit the most.
However other days an answer seems to
be staring back at me. This is also influenced by how much energy I
have, or what kind of day I have ahead of me. Then I formulate a plan
of how I will improve this particular part of my body. Not being a
morning person often means I will put it all of until later in my day, but I feel happy knowing I have a plan to improve my body, even if in a very small way.
Getting naked for exercise decisions also reminds me that I cannot neglect any part of my body for too long and that maintenance can be just as important as improvements.
Ensuring my body at least retains what it
has, seems to motivate me to do a bit more. Why this is I don't know
– it may be due to increased testosterone levels, being more in
touch with my body or just an increase in mood and motivation. Either
way it seems to be true that a little can lead to more!
