Motivation, What I Mean When I Say

Recently, I was making a pros and cons list. On this list, the very first con of a long list of cons was "I don't want to". Now, this is a phrase I've heard myself say for years. This is a phrase other people have heard me say for years. And I did jot it down.… Continue reading “I Don’t Want To”

We do know one thing: we should be doing it. That doesn't mean that we actually stretch consistently… Continue reading Stretching Is Hard
