exercise = happy
I have been stuck in such a gloomy spot, descending in a kind of hopeless spiral fueled by pain in my feet and the state of the world and anything else I could find to take me even further down. I haven't worked out in 11 days. It's been hell, and I knew that I missed it, but I didn't realize the tremendous positive effect exercise has on my state of mind until last night. I went into the gym in despair and left an hour later with a feeling of excitement and good cheer. The good effect continued all evening and still today. I feel like myself again; hope you are happy today as well.
