So many people I meet constantly tell themselves, "I need to do more," or punish themselves, deciding it's lazy to sit down to watch TV after work. I remind them that they got up at 6:00 am, took care of the kids, drove through rush-hour traffic, worked a hectic day, came home to do chores, and cooked for the family. So if you'd rather relax after all that than add stress and guilt about not making it to the gym, I don't think you're lazy; I think you're tired. The idea that you have to be at the gym every day is simply ridiculous. There are other ways -- just as important ways -- of practicing self-care. You need to know that it's okay to schedule some chill time. Take a nap, read a book, enjoy a bath. Embrace those acts and know that they are as important as going to the gym.
