WOW Exercise… do you know how hard it is to create and maintain an effective exercise routine.
I’ve been at it on and off for quite a while now. But I’m thinking, I’ve got to tell myself that this ‘thing’ called exercise is VERY important. I’ve got to tell myself that this can be a life or death situation. It is very important to the quality of my life. I’ve got to get drastic in order to get out of bed, or stop whatever I’m doing and just go do the exercise.
I’m getting scared and tired of hearing stories of people getting a stroke at the age of 38 – I’m getting close to that age now 🙂 – Yesterday, I read a story of a young lady at the age of 25, who just collapsed and died, she wasn’t known to have any illnesses. What a tragedy that must be for her family, it brought tears to my eyes.
I figure it has to be a balance, a good diet means everything in moderation. As too much of a thing can be bad for you. I try to take my supplements as support for what I might not be getting based on my diet. Try to take care of my mental, emotional and spiritual life, as stress is a serious killer. This includes our family life and work life and then we have to make sure we get time for ourselves to just unwind and do whatever.
Then here comes the exercise, we just can’t get away from it. Face it, our bodies need it. One of the benefits of exercise is a healthy mind, it can help to fight anxiety and depression. The brain is stimulated by exercise into releasing chemicals that make you feel happy. Maybe this is why I always have a pep in my step when I exercise.
So without further ado, I’m off. I think this morning is a ZUMBA morning!!!
