This rule is simple. Give your workout a go for fifteen minutes.  If you are still very anti-exercise (or exhausted) at that point, give yourself permission to get off the treadmill (or yoga mat).

We all have days that are tough, mentally, physically, emotionally.  If you can push through and get yourself to your workout (however that might look, walking, biking, swimming) chances are that if you give it a an honest-to-goodness effort for 15 minutes the endorphins will rush in and you will actually feel better.

Physical activity can act as a pick me up, it decreases stress and gosh darn it, is just good for you.  So give yourself 15 minutes before deciding to opt out.
