Some days we wake up motivated and inspired and other days a little help is needed. I recently discovered a free app on my iPhone called DailyQuote. Every day a brand new positive and inspirational quote is sent right to my phone. I am absolutely in love with this app! The other morning I had one of those experiences where everything that could possibly could go wrong did, and it wasn't even 9am yet. Just when I was ready to explode out of frustration on the stalled subway car, my phone buzzed and it was my quote of the day, "The way you perceive and react to the world is a choice" by D.F. Wallace. That simple quote turned my day around. I took a deep breath, thanked my iPhone app for reminding me about the power of positive thinking, and had a great day from there on out.
Later that afternoon I applied this message to working out and shared it with my class. I told them the way we perceive and react to the challenges we face in our class is a choice. Whether you're climbing a big hill in a spinning class or doing push-ups, if all you can think about is how hard it's going to be or how badly your muscles burn you've already sabotaged your success. If instead you think about how much stronger your body is getting, how many calories you're burning, or how you're getting closer to your goals, the exercise suddenly won't seem like such a burden. Everyday the quote that's delivered to you is unique, and the best part is the app is totally free! What have you got to lose?
