Okay, quick brag- For the first time in my life I am consistently exercising!!!!
Now on to the point- I'm finding that I go farther, workout longer if my mind has something interesting to ponder while I'm running/swimming/cycling/whatever. I'd love to find some good books that I can read a section of before I work out and let my mind ponder what I've read while I'm moving. For example, yesterday I started "The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. I read the first agreement yesterday before swimming, and the second today before my walk.
Some themes that I'm into right now:
These will probably change over the coming months, so if you've got a favorite thought-provoking book that doesn't fit into these categories, please share. Actually, I'm on day 6 of a Master Cleanse so I'm feeling more meditative lately, but will probably be interested in other style books fairly soon (as I come off the cleanse).
Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
