Exercise To Stimulate Your Motivational Energy
When you make a move, from say sitting to standing, or from standing to walking, or from walking to running, the muscles that initiate the move are the ones at the front of your thighs, your quadriceps. These muscles are so powerful, they have four heads each, hence quadriceps (from the Latin: quadri means four and ceps means heads).
Hence these are said to be the repository of your motivational energy, your will to move.
By stimulating the energy and blood circulation in the quadriceps you engender an instant uplift of motivational energy, sufficient to antidote the most lethargic or resistant state.
One way to do so is to make fists and rhythmically pound with the little finger edges of the fists up and down, up and down, up and down and up, resting at the top of your thighs.
You’ll find it generates an odd sensation at first but let go into it and it soon feels magnificent, especially so when you stop, at which you’ll feel a wonderful surge of heat streaming up from your thighs into your hips and belly.
Within no more than ten minutes you’ll be feeling motivated enough to get on with whatever you have to do with renewed enthusiasm.
I wish you enthusiasm renewed and increased a thousand-fold today so that nothing feels too daunting to accomplish.
