For one thing, I don’t want to commit to an annual gym membership before I know how well I’ll respond to regular exercise and weightlifting
I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions because I thought it was silly when I was a lot younger. There wasn’t any significance to the holiday for me in those days, but that has changed with time. Life is a constant struggle towards self-perfection, so it means a lot to me when I make a spiritual promise with myself to push for serious changes in my habits and behavior. Last year I made a resolution to meditate everyday and to use it as a means to treat my chronic anxiety. Although I wasn’t successful with meditating every single day, my goal got me close to that mark by meditating at least three to four times a week. Before I knew it I was starting to make serious improvements on my mental health, especially with my anger. This year I decided to go further with my New Year’s resolution and decided to lose weight and get fit. I started looking at all of the local gyms and fitness centers to find the one that would be the best fit for me. For one thing, I don’t want to commit to an annual gym membership before I know how well I’ll respond to regular exercise and weightlifting. One factor that pushed me to finally get a gym membership was having access to a yoga and meditation studio. It’s nice knowing that I could workout in the weight room and get my body pushed to the limit before heading to the yoga studio for yoga classes. The best part is the meditation session at the very end to cap it all off.
