When it comes to enjoying exercise, it’s mind over matter. Researchers at Brock University tested competitive cyclists in heat and humidity. But half the group was taught to reframe negative feelings as positive ones. So instead of thinking “Man it’s hot; I’m dying!” they thought “I can handle it.” After 2 weeks, those with a positive mindset could pedal 25% longer. The other group saw NO improvement during hot, humid exercise.  And the technique can benefit ANY workout. Just ditch negative phrases like “This is tough” for positive ones, like “I’ve got this.”
