Monday Motivation

If the dance of the run isn’t fun then discover another dance, because without fun the good of the run is undone, and a suffering runner always quits, sooner or later.

Make exercise fun, do an activity that brings you pleasure and joy.

Evolved individuals

Avoid extremes,

Avoid extravagance,

Avoid excess.

— Tao Te Ching, No. 29

Make exercise a habit.
