Today I half heartedly boarded my elliptical. Let's just say it's been quite a week. Despite busy days at work and some auditions, I've had a private issue adding to my stress. Nevertheless, I began pumping away on the machine and something magical happened....it was so much easier than it's been lately. I was at a higher level and flying. It felt good. Elle Woods is correct: Exercise gives you endorphins and endorphins make you happy. I had an outlet for my tension and stomped out all of my emotion and frustrations from the week. I finished my workout with a sense of lightness and elation. Seriously, exercise is an amazing tonic. It's tough when you've had a rough day to muster the strength to get yourself up and going, but I realized just how healing it was for me today.
Has exercise proved to be the best medicine for you?
