What have we learned from the Olympics
What do all Olympic athletes have in common? Perseverance, dedication, commitment and love of the sport. They wake up thinking about exercise and go to sleep thinking about exercise. Why is it that the rest of the world can’t get off the couch? Simple, these athletes crave it. They have made their bodies ask for it and when they don’t get it, their bodies revolt by making them feel ill. This is why even when injured they still want to do it. The pressure of competition is part of it but anyone who exercises and works out frequently will tell you they feel awful when they can’t exercise. It’s similar to people with a food addiction, you programed your body to crave food, where athletes program their bodies to crave exercise. We can all crave exercise by doing it on a regular basis. It becomes part of us and our bodies demand it. Become an exercise craver, it does the body and mind good.
