You know when you have had one of those days? Or even weeks?
Stress levels are high. Demands and deadlines everywhere. The to-do list seems to be ever-growing. The commute has been a giant PITA. Other people, same.
When I have one of those days, it’s not unusual for me to get home in a fearful grump. Action is very much required to erase the day. I know that the answer definitely isn’t at the bottom of a glass of wine. The answer is within me – and my trainers.
It’s time to put your headphones in your ears and work it off, work it out.
Run it off. Zumba it off. Swim it the hell off. Stretch it out. Lift some weights. Do your thing, whatever it is.
Exercise is a great stress reliever. When you have had one of those days, you probably won’t feel like it very much at all. But push yourself all the same. Just a short burst of exercise will lift your mood and energy, and help to banish the trials of the day.
Work the stress out.
