Welcome back to the Great 8 List, all!

Why 8 you ask? Well, in addition to rhyming so well with the word “great” (thus providing a catchy title for my countdown) the number 8 is also my lucky number. (The number 2 is my other lucky number, but two items does not a countdown make).

Also, studies prove that absolutely everybody is a little more ADD today than they were yesterday, and a little less ADD than they will be tomorrow. So a Great 8 List has all the benefits of a Top 10, without those last two things that nobody has time for anyways.

I'm too busy to tell people how busy I am

You’re welcome, blogosphere.

So, sometimes finding the motivation to exercise feels impossible, amirite? Maybe you’ve been in a rut for a little while now or maybe you’re just feeling tired today. Whatever it may be, sometimes the energy just isn’t there when we need it to be.

BUT! Think back to when you were little… remember how easy it was to find inspiration in the simplest things?

With that in mind, today’s Great 8 List is intended to remind us to keep that childlike enthusiasm throughout our adult lives in order to find inspiration in the ordinary.

So without further ado, I present:
