Paying Attention: The Gym Paradox

Paying Attention:
Leaving the gym, I notice other gym people who have paid a fee and driven to the gym to get exercise, standing by the elevator, waiting for it to take them to the second floor of the parking garage instead of just walking up the stairs which are right in front of them and staying in exercise mode……guess our lives are so compartmentalized now that we can only get exercise inside the place we go to get exercise. It’s the gym paradox: exercise only counts if you’re dressed for it and conduct it in a special place.
