For the past few months I have been regularly hitting the gym. For most of my life, I have hated exercise just for the sake of exercise. Running on a treadmill or doing crunches was at the bottom of my list of fun ways to spend my freetime. As I have gotten older, I have started to appreciate the benefits of taking some time to take care of myself. I do have some easy tips to making your visits to the gym much more enjoyable.
Do you know how easy it is to borrow an ebook from your local library? Now that I know how, I burn through SO many more books than I did when I would have to make the trip to and from the actual library. While I love holding a real book in my hands, ebooks are much easier to take to the gym. All you need to do is download the Overdrive library app to your smart phone or tablet, log in to your local library with your card info, and – BOOM- instant access to hundreds of free ebooks. Completely changed my gym experience.
When I am not reading, I like to listen to some fun, high tempo music on my mp3 player. I shared some of my favorite workout music a few years back.
Another way to improve your workout is to make sure that you aren’t constantly fussing with your mp3 player or phone. Make a DIY workout arm band like this from Imagine Gnats that keeps your phone accessible, but out of the way.
Finally make sure your hair stays out your face by sewing some no-sew headbands like these from Apple of my Eye.
Now those hours spent at the gym are something I look forward to. And, shockingly, I feel better afterwards, physically and emotionally. But I also feel very thirsty. I probably don’t drink as much water during the day as I should, and after a workout, it really shows.
