And also, the part where you choose to actually engage in your exercise of choice.

Next time you go to the gym, don't just turn on the treadmill and clock miles. Or bust out a few biceps curls. Really, truly lock into what your body is doing and why. Because going through the motions, the actual habit of working out, while it's good that you've developed this repeat pattern of physical activity—it's really only part of your health and fitness journey.
I'll say it again: Engage in your exercise of choice. Truly respond to it. Exercise from a place of intention, not from habit. Get in there and earn that burn.
And when you're done, apply that same feeling to the rest of your life.
