The importance of developing a healthy workout habit.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres on our open platform. We publish pieces as written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team and must meet our guidelines prior to being published.

People that have chosen to develop the habit of working out regularly understand the value of a good sweat. At Rewire Inc, we don’t simply recommend that people exercise so that they feel better, or have a smaller waist, less fat or otherwise look better (though those byproducts certainly aren’t bad); we call for it because of what a good workout and a good sweat does for your mind. There is a cleansing that happens that is indescribable and immeasurable. It’s a little ironic that we have to push ourselves in a workout to go beyond comfort to achieve an even greater level of comfort in the aftermath.

If working out has become a part of your life, keep it up! In fact, you may want to change it up from time to time or even amp it up a little over time. Another good next step is help someone else start working out. If sweating is not a part of your daily routine, what can we say…??? You can listen to us talk about the benefits, you can read about the benefits you can even fully buy off on the benefits but you will not actually


the benefits until you go and do it. Stop buying the line that you don’t have time or that you don’t know how, or any other thing your lizard brain has been saying to you. What a life-changing habit this would be for you. Come, join the party.
