Let's talk about laziness. Have we oversimplified this complex concept? Of course! I'll use examples from nature to make the point that we're still animals wired to see energy expenditure as precious, even risky. We all choose the path of least resistance, some more than others. But in the name of self-compassion, we need to give ourselves a break and stop beating ourselves up for being less active than we want. At the same time, we can overcome society's relentless pursuit of making exercise obsolete by being more mentally innovative. Spoiler: stronger willpower isn't the answer.
