Does your mind wander?
This week’s Fish Dish link up asks this very question. Where does your mind go when you’re working out? Do you focus on one thing or are you wondering about lots of different things?
It’s hard to say exactly where my mind goes. I’ve given up listening to music while I exercise because it takes away from the experience. Working out can be incredibly meditative but I find that I focus on the music rather than my thoughts. It’s good to be alone with ones thoughts.
I don’t subscribe to this mentality while running a race; those require good tunes to maintain pace and energy.
When I do wander, it can be as simple as focusing on my breathing or getting to the end. Other times it’s ideas, places I want to go, people I want to see, things I want to do. I think a lot about goals and next steps. I get brilliant flashes of inspiration that usually lead to taking on more projects.
What can I say, I’m a dreamer.
Where does you mind go during a workout? Are you hooked to tunes or tuned into your own thoughts?
Any other dreamers out there?
