It doesn’t matter what you do as long as you’re moving your body. Movement stimulates your body’s natural feel-good chemicals called endorphins that provide a mood boost. And I’m sure you know that exercise increases energy levels, reduces stress and much more. Any kind of movement (exercise) can help a lot when you’re feeling down.
When you have a bad day, do something that makes you feel good and takes your mind off of things that are bothering you, stressing you out, or otherwise occupying your mind.

Champions are the ones who get out there and try. They are the ones who don’t stop when they’re tired. Champions stop when they’re done. Be like champions.
Getting fit is not a fad or a trend. It is a lifestyle. It is something you maintain throughout your life. Look at it as a steady part of your every day routine. However, exercise is just one part of your healthy lifestyle. The other part is a healthy diet and getting enough sleep. Good nutrition is the key to weight loss as well as to good mental and physical health. Proper nutrition helps to keep you in good health and prevents many disease.
A Sunday well spent brings a week of content. Have a beautiful Sunday and do more of what makes your heart sing. Oprah said something like: Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from doing what excites you.
