A Bridge Over Uncomfortable Waters

Today, as I was perusing Twitter to find inspiration for this week’s (Be Active Your Way) blog post, I came across an article in Psychology Today by Dr. Sherry Pagoto on the real reason we don’t exercise. According to Pagoto, the reason is that we avoid being uncomfortable in an increasingly comfortable world (at least in the US). I read through all the comforts of modern life, and all the discomforts we hate (being cold – guilty, getting out of bed in the wintertime – guilty), and found myself nodding in agreement with Dr. Pagoto’s solution of challenging ourselves to get comfortable being uncomfortable.
