Being counter-intuitive is an interesting concept. Why? Probably because when we do follow our intuition we end up doing less than we can. Have you ever felt like not doing anything?
Generally that's a sign that it's worth just start. As Seth Godin explains in "Go for a walk":
The best time is when you don't feel like it.
Going for a walk when you don't feel like it will change your mood, transform your posture and get you moving.
And if you don't feel like talking with someone, bring them with you on the walk.
