02.10.14 Exercise can make a mental difference. Exercising 3 to 4 days a week (If possible), builds resilience and increases you capacity in the following areas: mentally, physically, and emotionally.
Strive to include exercise in your day – whether it’s a gym workout, short walk at lunch, or a pre / post work cardio routine.
When I first started getting back into a routine of exercising I made my goal attainable:
20 minutes + high heart rate.
20 minutes fit into my schedule and merely thinking about running as I walked got my heart rate up.
Exercise releases natural endorphins after a 20 minute cardio workout that makes you feel good. With a sense of achievement and your head held high – this type of positivity will help to carry you through the most difficult of days as it has me.
I’ be honored to hear your thoughts and what your doing in the exercise arena?
