It’s mid-January, and you may feel like a fitness failure.
Join the gym, find a yoga class or lose 10 pounds?
Not a chance.
Go from couch to 5K?
Still on the couch.
Achieve that feeling of euphoria your friends say they get after SoulCycle?
It’s still Greek to you.
Instead of calling it quits for the year, what if you resolved to change your mind-set about fitness?
In his book “How to Think About Exercise,” Australian philosopher Damon Young offers a foundation to fulfill that resolution. As part of the School of Life book series that had its U.S. release this month, Young uses philosophical inquiries to explain how we in the West came to think about exercise and fitness and how that way of thinking is a major barrier to being fit.
