It’s one of the worst feelings of all time. You pull up to the gym so excited to get started on your killer workout, already knowing what songs you’ll blast as you push yourself during each set. You can’t wait to block out the world, you just need to find your headphones in your bag…except they’re nowhere to be found. You did the unthinkable. You forgot your headphones!
Instead of immediately leaving the gym because you can’t stand the thought of not listening to your own music during your gym sesh, try not to panic. There is opportunity in this unfortunate circumstance. This opportunity is to have a mindful gym session. Instead of blocking out the world, tune into it. Tune into your body.
While it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, every once in a while it’s good to be super mindful as you workout. It will leave you feeling every bit of your muscles as they strive to push past your limits. We guarantee, being mindful as you workout will leave you amazed at how much your body can handle, how strong it is, and how good it really feels to challenge it. So next time you forget your headphones, take a deep breath and get ready to pay attention and really appreciate how strong your body is!
