Book: The Intrinsic Exerciser: Discovering the Joy of Exercise
Hmm...this certainly sounds like a book for me. I have a great disinclination to exercise merely for exercise sake. If I am engaged in an activity, I will extend myself much more than when I am simply walking to get some exercise. I know from my past that I can effectively reduce my weight with only a moderate increase in my activity level, yet, I still fail to do it. The Intrinsic Exerciser is focused on developing internal reasons for exercise rather than relying on external reasons.
I put in a hold request at the LAPL and look forward to checking it out.
...I recently read a great little book called The Intrinsic Exerciser: Discovering the Joy of Exercise by Jay C. Kimiecik. This book is all about how to change your mindset so that you exercise for intrinsic reasons instead of extrinsic reasons. The idea is that if you can do this, then you will want to exercise, you might even be passionate about it. After reading it, it struck me that this should work for anything you want to do in a more passionate way, but are having a hard time figuring out how to get there. [Click link above for more.]
