Here is why exercise has become one of my favorite things.
Terrible, rough times at work - dealing with another complaint about a staff person which may result in "termination" of that person; having to consider closing down a program after 20 years; learned of death of my mother's closest friend; troubles for my brother and his family; I guess I am so inundated that I cannot even think clearly about all this. I feel numb.
But I have not gone off my program. I am an absolute believer in the power of physical exercise to improve both my physical health and my emotional well-being. There have been days when I have felt inertia creeping back into my mindset. But with the encouragement of my daughter, by Sparking, or just on my own, I have gotten up out of my recliner and headed to the Wii or out for a walk. I put on my headphones, listen to upbeat music...
And then I don't feel so bad.
