If you’ve been inactive for a while, you’re gonna feel exhausted.
The reason you feel tired and sluggish is because you haven’t moved in a while.
I know it’s counterintuitive but hear me out.
Think of it like inertia: it takes a lot of force to get a boulder rolling, but once it starts rolling, it actually becomes harder to stop.
You might have to force yourself a bit at first, but you will feel more energised afterwards.
Energy is like a muscle, it grows when we use it. And if we don’t use it, we lose it.
If the idea of a full workout is too daunting, just start with a 5-minute walk. Or 1 Sun Salutation. Or your 3 favourite stretches.
Just start with something. Get the boulder rolling.
