My reading resolution started out with my favorite book, Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins, you can read more about that one here. Goggins book was a great way to start out a year of change and that is the same reason that I have decided to feature THE ULTIMATE BOOST FROM WITHIN: 31 Days to Health, Wealth, Wholeness, and Happiness by Dr. Leonard Scott.
This book encourages you to live your best life and make changes in the areas that need it most. It helps us to get that boost we need to get our lives on track, and unleash the power of a good attitude to make positive changes in our lives. I am excited to share and excerpt from the book below and tell you a little bit more about what you can expect from this months Reading Resolution pick.
Excerpted from Dr. Leonard Scott’s THE ULTIMATE BOOST FROM WITHIN
Committing to the Long Haul
Once you start an exercise program, various temptations and excuses will entice you to stop, but don’t quit. One distraction is fatigue. Many complain of being too tired, but this is actually a good time to exercise. You will usually feel less tired after the workout than before.
Have you ever come home fatigued only to see the exhaustion disappear after doing something enjoyable? Studies suggest that fatigue often has its source in emotional rather than physical exhaustion, although this is not to deny the validity of physical tiredness as well.Another reason for wanting to quit is decreasing enthusiasm. You begin to wonder why you ever started the exercise program.
This happens to many people, but if you keep going, eventually your enthusiasm will return. Discouragement is another distraction. You may feel like all this effort is not doing any good. However, you must realize that it is doing you a lot of good. You just can’t fully sense it yet. Approach exercise as an investment. If you don’t begin to receive dividends within two months of faithful participation, only then should you consider quitting. Some say it takes 31 days to break old habits and start new ones.
Thus, the 31 days challenge of this book. Commit to the long haul. You can’t store up energy or the benefit of exercise for the distant future. If you exercise six months and then stop, the benefits will begin to fade within two weeks. Onceyou begin a program, maintain it in some form for the rest of your life. This is a big commitment, but it is a lifestyle change that will help ensure a longer and healthier life.
