When You Need a Mental Workout More Than Physical…

Image result for exercise for the brain

Today I back squatted and bench pressed.

My body wasn’t all that sore after 18.1 yesterday, and I hadn’t done much strength work because of the Open.

Today my mind needed it.

I was sorely disappointed in my performance in 18.1 and I was feeling pretty low.  I needed to lift some heavy weights to re-boost my confidence and re-set my mind for next week.

Plus, exercise is like hitting the reset button for me.  It clears my mind and allows me to think and focus on what I have to do in the day.  It’s clarity at its best.

So today in was me and the bar.  Afterwards, I felt better.  SO much better.

I  know…I’m weird.

  1. I’m certainly not doing the exercises you are.. Phew… but, I always feel great after dancing, and just lately, rowing! Yoga also leaves me feeling wonderful, too.
    Nothing beats exercise, gentle or robust, to increase healthy benefits to the body and mind…
