Can we practice mindfulness in bodybuilding?
Mindfulness is a practice that involves listening to your body and bringing your attention to how you feel in the present moment. This technique can prevent overeating by helping you learn to recognize when you no longer feel hungry.
You may think this is some Buddhist, meditation mumbo-jumbo! This is a common misconception. Whether you are a regular at gym or only go occasionally, mindfulness can improve your workout. As you head to the gym set an intention for your workout. At the gym, take note of your energy level and your mood before hitting the gym. Every day is a new day. Celebrate your accomplishments and, on occasion, give yourself permission to take a break and begin again. In the end be grateful for your body’s ability to move and change.
