Most folks start an exercise program to lose weight. That makes sense because in our nation of abundance it’s easy to get fat—very fat. Research out of the University of Michigan now suggests a paradigm shift in attitude that can help you stick with your workouts. Instead of exercising to lose weight, think of your workouts as improving your well-being. Subjects in the study were 34 percent more likely to stick with it when they had that attitude as opposed to doing it to just lose weight. It’s about health and overall quality of life, not just looking better.
