Paradigm Shift

What if you stopped thinking about working out as a way to lose weight and instead thought about it as an emotional and psychological, as well as physical, process? If you thought of the experience not in calories burned but endorphins earned would that make it more palatable?

If only we were as happy to hop on a bike as my nephew

If you knew that you’d have a net gain in happiness as a result, would it change your motivation? Would you be more likely to say I want to go to the gym than I have to go to the gym?

Just wondering.
