Everyone deals with stress different ways. Some go for comfort foods, for me I go for exercise. I have the best workouts because I am pushing myself so hard to let it go of the stress. It is the most constructive way to reduce stress. This week has been stressful with work and family crisis. Yesterday, I ran 6 tempo hilly miles in my sanctuary (Maudslay State Park). Today, TRX, teach class in the pool then bike 15 miles. After these workouts I am so relaxed from all those endorphins that I work more efficient, in a better mood and have good night sleep.
Next time, time you are stressed think before you grab that candy bar. Go for walk, run, bike ride, swim, spin class or exercise, you will be in a better place with yourself and have great workout.
