If you find yourself hitting the snooze button more than once for your morning workout or dreading your exercise routine overall, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re being lazy. Running the same route outdoors or on the treadmill to nowhere for 45 minutes everyday can become uninspiring for some. Your lack of motivation could mean […]
