Improve exercise workout and results by using the mind
I just read this very interesting article by Dr. Mercola that discusses how the mind can be used to improve workout results by imagining yourself performing the exercise you want to improve in.

It's very true that you can even make yourself sick. The mind controls the body, so learn to use that to your advantage. For general health focus on happy thoughts and avoid stressful thoughts. For greater success in the gym, imagine both the workouts and having great results to help you achieve success.
