“You’re only one workout away from a good mood”
Amen to that! There is so much truth in this. Exercise really is the best therapy.
I have had some not so great days at work over the past week, and let me tell you… as soon as I started working out at the end of the day, I felt a million times better.
The moment I simply ARRIVE at the gym, my mood does a complete 180. It’s weird how that works. By the time I make it through the locker room and down the stairs into the gym, I am on cloud nine – a kid in a candy shop, anxious to try everything. Between doing something good for yourself and knowing that you’re going to be sore as hell in the morning if all goes as planned (yes, I look forward to the pain), I am happy as a clam. So imagine how good my mood is after I have a killer workout and am running back to my locker drenched in sweat, salivating for my post-workout protein shake that I had been day-dreaming about. Heeeeaaaven.
So, to those of you who are stressed out, anxious, unhappy, or simply in need of a pick-me-up… I suggest you treat yourself to a good workout. You’d be surprised what it can do for the body AND mind.
