Have you tried numerous times and failed to consistently keep on a workout schedule? Do you feel defeated every time this happens? Maybe the reason that you fail to stick with your exercise plan is because you haven’t approached it from the right angle. One way is to reexamine the reason you’re working out in the first place. Exercise is one of the top ways to stay in shape, burn fat, boost your metabolism, and gain muscle. But, if you have found the right kind of exercise it should be fun!
When the body is at rest, you want centered breathing where the chest and the abdominal area move equally and at the same time. When all parts of the ribcage can move easily it won’t appear as if the chest is lifting much at all.

You can always tell an experienced runner by the way they start off a race loose and relaxed. The amateurs are the ones who tighten up as they prepare to give their bodies everything they can. When you tighten your muscles with the intent of pushing as hard as you can, you leave yourself open to injury, which could not only make you slower but could also sideline you for an entire season or more.
I was afraid of the dark, afraid of the bright light, afraid of birds (later I found out that my mother had a fear of birds), afraid of snakes, rats, any kind of rodent, or animal that had claw feet — except for dogs and cats of course. I was afraid of heights – and depths, deep water, fear of the unknown, fear of public speaking, fear of frogs jumping on my feet, and the list goes on. I am a work in progress.
Enjoy the new you. You deserve to be happy and joyful. Others will benefit by your new way of being. Shine your inner light as brightly as you can. Say “Yes, Yes Yes” to having peace in your life and really mean it. Now, enjoy your new way of living!
