Exercise Roadblocks

Exercise Roadblocks

Exercise Roadblocks

We all know that exercise is good for us and that we should probably be doing more of it than we are currently doing. I won’t bore you with all of the reasons that you should exercise. You already know many of them. What I’d like to do is to help you to overcome some of the roadblocks that you may currently have that may be keeping you from developing and maintaining an exercise program.

Galileo observed 400 years ago that an object at rest stays at rest unless an external force is applied to it. This formed the cornerstone of one of Newton’s laws of motion, which states that an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless an external force is applied to it. What does this mean to us? Those of us that exercise tend to continue exercising, and those of us that don’t, well, don’t. Well, duh! This isn’t a profound, new idea to most of us. What I think is interesting, however, is in taking a look at what keeps us in one of these two places. To really fix a problem, you must truly understand its source.

The Main Obstacle
I would say that the #1 obstacle that people have when faced with lifestyle change is their core beliefs. What motivates us all to take action of any kind is our beliefs surrounding the thing that we are trying to change. We all gravitate toward things that give us pleasure and move away from things that cause us pain. What accounts for the differences in behavior from one person to the next has to do with our beliefs surrounding pleasure and pain.

The person that exercises daily and consumes healthy foods does it because they understand that being in good health makes them feel good, which moves them towards pleasure, which is what most of us are after. Good choices are often motivated by the fear of pain as well, such as the desire to avoid surgical interventions, the overwhelming expense of being unhealthy, or even the psychological pain of being overweight.

The way to find clues about what your beliefs are towards exercise and food is to simply take a look at your behavior. If you don’t tend to exercise very often (or eat your vegetables), chances are you associate those activities with pain rather than pleasure. Making this internal shift is the most powerful thing that you can do to affect long term change.

No Time or Energy?
Another obstacle that I frequently hear about is a lack of time and energy. We all have the same 24 hours in a day, and we all find the time for those things that are priorities to us. While trying to shift your core beliefs, it might be helpful to understand that by making exercise a priority, over time, it will give you more energy and better productivity, which will ultimately give you more time to devote to your other priorities.

To aid you in making the shift towards making exercise pleasurable, I encourage you to think back to what types of physical activities gave you...
