The psychology of fitness…..

There is a book entitled “Curious?” by Todd Kashdon, professor of psychology at George Mason University.

In his book Dr. Kashdon defines curiosity as “The recognition, pursuit, and intense desire to explore novel, challenging, and uncertain events”.

Where am I going with this? Studies have shown that older individuals with high levels of curiosity have been found to live longer over a 5 year period.

While training ask questions, run or ride a different route to discover new and interesting vistas, and read new articles in magazines or web sites to answer some of your fitness questions.
