Emotional well being includes physical fitness.
Our mind and body work together to form one powerful machine.
Each half of the machine must be cared for and maintained like any other machine. Staying mentally and physically fit is an important part of health. It’s important to remember our mental and physical health during these trying times. Coronavirus has everyone stressed out and anxious. Our normal routines have been uprooted, changed, and sometimes destroyed completely. My sister has 4 kids at home everyday now, and she is trying to work from home. I can’t imagine how she possibly works with all four kids running around the house with very little to occupy their time. They miss school and friends too. I haven’t been able to go to the gym in two months. I miss seeing my friends and I miss the structure and the routine. I’m 35 years old and it’s difficult for me to cope. I know the kids must feel crazy. I always went to the gym right after work for a nice workout. It was a great way to relieve some of the work day stress. Tuesday I had kickboxing class, another great way to relieve work stress. Now I am stuck working from home and I have no way to relieve the stress. I tried a fitness routine at home, but I’m not as motivated as I would be in the gym. I know that life is going to be much different for a long time, but I look forward to the day when I can join my friends for a vigorous and fun-filled afternoon workout.
