Friday Thread: Let's help a fellow reader find their motivation

Good morning, everyone! ☀️ I wanted to change things up today, as I received a reply from a reader to Wednesday’s newsletter that I felt a lot of empathy with, as it’s a place I know I’ve been in more than once, and I imagine we’ve all been in at one point or another.

Here’s what the reader had to say:

“How do you motivate yourself to get out there and run?

I hate running, and find it to be such a chore…. But I need to bet healthy and lose weight – but I just don’t have the motivation.  I believe depression is playing a role in it – anything you could do would help me.”

If a friend came to you and asked you this, what would you tell them? Or, have you ever experienced a lull in your own motivation, and what helped you find it again? — Terrell
