Sometimes words will not be enough to comfort you, but movement will. Movement can give you a euphoric feeling. Have you heard of runner’s high? It’s that exhilarating feeling you get when you exercise as the body releases endorphins or feel-good hormones. You have to get on your feet and move to feel it.
Alas, a small voice inside you whispers, “I don’t want to move.”
There are days when you can’t drag yourself to work out. You find yourself making excuses. You say to yourself that it’s too cold in the morning and you can’t get out of bed. You claim that you have more important things to do, and you can’t squeeze in a workout in your schedule. However, your physical health is just as important as your work.
Taking steps to ensure that you have a healthy body is a process. There will be days when you’re fired up to do some cardio and some days when you will feel too sluggish to move. Your slow days are part of the process, and you can always go back to square one.
While you can’t control every aspect of your life, you can seize the things that are within arm’s length or the things you have power over. For the things you cannot touch, let them go and release the stress that makes you feel helpless.

Warm up with orange.
Amp up your workout with a bop music playlist! Alexa, play Nicki Minaj’s Good Form to remind you of the basics of a good workout. It doesn’t matter how much you exercise. If you have a bad form and you forget warming up, you’re more prone to injuries, which will delay your progress.
Run on the yellow brick road.
Move to your beat and follow the rhythm of your body. Now, you see the yellow light! It’s a signal to cool down and prepare to stop. Give time for rest days so your muscles can fully recover.
