Day 46: I’m fascinated by how habits get started. Humans may be creatures of habit, but our minds are actually designed to always choose the easier route (to keep us safe) unless that work provides pleasure or reward.

The logical step is to connect working out with a reward, though my mind is already saying “let’s just not go”.

Shut up, brain.
