The Simply Luxurious Life blog recently posted an article called, The French Way: How to Create a Luxurious Everyday Life, and one of the items was such…

11. Design a workout regimen to look forward to. Whether you enjoy exercising outdoors in Mother Nature or attending classes lead by instructors that inspire you and classmates that boost your mood, explore your interests and community to see what is available and what captures your needs and proclivities. Most people after having exercise will tell you that they feel better, energized and less stress, and if you can bring that into your everyday life, everything will be affected in a very positive way.

I implore you to really think about this one. No, it doesn’t mean running if you’ve been there, done that, and despise the thought of lacing up your Nikes. No, it doesn’t mean joining a gym if you’ve tried every workout class ever created. No, it doesn’t mean going for a hike if you have nightmares of running into a bear. It does however mean trying a variety of activities until one sticks, and it won’t stick until you love it. This could take a lifetime for some, and that’s ok, but don’t shy away from a little exercise perseverance. More exercise = more of these…
