A few days (ahem, a week) has passed since my last fitness log. I have been doing light workouts but not anything worth noting. By "light workouts", I mean a few reps of push-ups and skinny-dippers here and there. I could use the excuse that I haven't had time to work out, but the reality is I haven't been making time to work out. I let stress get to me this week and wallowed in it. I decided to change that today.
This morning, I revisited Jillian Michaels: Yoga Meltdown. I found the combination of breathing techniques and dynamic movements the perfect mix to realign my body and my mind.
Stress is difficult for most people to manage - I get that. I see to struggle more than others and it greatly affects my health and my life. I become sluggish and unmotivated. However, once I get my butt off the couch and work out, all seems better with the world. I need to remember this feeling the next time I'm stressed and don't want to work out. I need to change the word "want" to "need".
Hope you are all going into the next week right. Tell me: What do you do to manage your stress?
