Episode 42 - KEY TO CONSISTENT EXERCISE
with massage therapist Sparrow Heatley
Are you having a hard time staying consistent with exercise? This week, massage therapist and yoga instructor Sparrow Heatley shares how she learned new skills, faced her fears, and showed up for herself while training for her first sprint triathlon.
Exercise is usually our last priority when we are busy and overwhelmed. But that’s when we need it the most! Exercise reduces stress and increases energy, resulting in a great ripple effect. After a workout you choose to eat healthier, sleep better at night, and experience an uplifted mood. Sometimes exercising to lose a certain amount of weight or to look a certain way is not juicy enough to keep us motivated for long periods of time.
In this episode, we uncover how setting a big goal with specific benchmark dates is the key to staying motivated and consistent - even when we are at our busiest or feeling our lousiest. We invite you to say YES to the challenge you’ve had in mind for yourself!
