What Are You Really Working Out
April 12, 2018
You use that phrase loosely: "working out."
But what does that really mean?
Strength training. Running hill sprints. Skill and drill.
When you "work out" what you are really doing is "working out" your
negative psychological tensions: anger, anxiety, frustration.
You feel better at the end of your workout. Your body's release of
endorphins, adrenaline, & serotonin helps. But there is more to it.
At conscious and subconscious levels, you processed and resolved
repressed stressors. Your mind actually got a bit clearer.
Runners often say they do their best thinking during their runs.
Clearer mind, better performance.
What will you really be "working out" today?
