Awesome ideas. There is no longer any reason to use being in a funk as an excuse to self sabotage hard work and progress by stuffing your face or being a couch potato. You don't have to run a marathon, what I have learned is that any exercise is still exercise. If I only walk around the block because I am tired or I am too busy or squeeze in a ten minute cardio routine, that's OK. We won't be super motivated every single day. Just do what you can.
This article is great advice. Walking outside feels so good I try to do it everyday. At least 3 times a week I walk at apace to make to me a little breathless ( about 25 mile minutes) The rest of the time I walk with my husband or friends at a pace that we can carry on a conversation. Walking is great whether I'm try to improve my emotions or my heart thru aerobics.
I really love this article. It covers all the bases!! I've found that no matter what mood I'm in, kickboxing & zumba will help get me out of the funk. It's hard to be upset/sad/angry when you're dancing or moving around.
I use the kickboxing it makes me feel like I did something I shouldn't have but it burns the stress off that way I can say at least it wasn't on them or to them in person just in my head I guess is safer than blowing up on someone else that's why the kick boxing is my favorite who Evers making me angry that my target for the day if I'm not angry or frustrated or upset its walking the boring walking I get to board with it
Kickboxing. Kickboxing. Not everyone likes kickboxing. Some of our Jazzercise routines have kickboxing moves, and I cringe and feel crummy. It brings back unwelcome memories of domestic violence, and a very bad period in my life.
Yes, I know. Some women feel "empowered" by kicking and punching. I don't. I just feel sick. To do kickboxing in response to feeling bad would only have me feeling worse.
No thanks. No punching fists for me, please. No kicking feet.
I hated exercise, but I started the 10-min-a-day spark streak and I'm starting to love it. I have had it pull me out of a bad mood and really loved that power; being able to life my own spirits. What a great article to let everyone know this!
