While technology can help manage our tasks, the bottom line is that it can’t add more hours in our day! Most of us are busy with work, kids, family, chores and tasks and our running around is endless. But while it may look like a laundry explosion on your floor, you’re called in to a last minute meeting as you are trying to get out of the office, or your cell phone is ringing off it’s imaginary hook your workout should remain at the tippy top of your to do list.
Regular exercise is important in reducing stress. Don’t believe me? The next time you had a bad day at the office or a(nother) stressful day with the kiddies, lace up your sneakers and go for a brisk walk or a quick run. After about ten minutes into your exercise you will start to work through what’s eating at you and by the time you have returned (oh yeah, you have to come back) you will feel better.
Yes, you’ll still have to deal with the things that sent you out in the first place, but you will feel calmer and more in control. I have rarely gone for a run and come back feeling worse than when I left.
Now go run!
