There’s no shame in falling off the fitness wagon.
Sometimes, lifestyles receive you down. Like, indeed down. So down, in truth, that you legitimately dread having to leave your bed within the morning. You slump your way to paintings, autopilot thru the day, get home, and drown yourself in your vices till sleep catches up with you. Understandable; I’ve been there earlier than and—hell—I’ve been there despite VR in my life. I changed into there last week.
VR isn’t always the treatment-all for laziness and lifestyles pressure. I used to file on lively VR gaming as though it has been the holy strategy to sedentary dwelling, and I’ve found that, for quite a few people, including myself at times, that’s now not genuine. Sure, for some lucky people, it offers precisely the suitable aggregate of stimuli to get going and permanently stay in the direction of higher fitness. But you’re still human. I’m nonetheless human. Those humans are still human. All of us are on a continuous ebb and drift with the tides of life, and from time to time, nicely, life occurs. And that’s why I forced myself to take a seat on this chair and write a step-by means of-step manual on the way to deliver yourself a right motivational slap in the face. Yes, you’ll be in VR for a full-size length of this motivational self-slapping. (But please don’t go overboard and prefer, dunk your head into a bucket of water while sporting a headset. We look down on people who feed ammo to the ‘sweating in VR is awful ‘bandwagon.)
