“Diseases of the soul are more dangerous and more numerous than those of the body.” ~ Cicero
Have you ever had a bad day? Or just don’t feel quite as chipper as you usually do? A sure-fire way to change this is … exercise!
Every time I exercise, I come away with a “high”. Oh, I might feel tired, beat up, and physically exhausted. But, my mental attitude is always “better” than it was before I exercised. A few days ago, I biked home from work in a strong headwind. By the time I arrived at home, I was tired and later than planned. But I still felt great about being out there, moving my body. I felt great even though I felt tired!
Exercise can take many forms. A walk around the block, football in the backyard, running a 5K race, strength training, playing tag, the list goes on and on. So, make some time to exercise every day. Mix it up, making some days more strenuous than others. Find things you like to do that will keep you active. And then get out there and do it. Your body and mind will be renewed!
