5: After a tough-ass, push myself to the limit workout, these mcchicken legs bout to break 🐔 This week's about stress relievers, and what I do to release a load off my chest 😤
LIFE be BUSY, fast-track & ain't no one got time to wait anymore in this day and age. It's a do now, get now lifestyle we've evolved into. This makes for exposure to a multitude of stressors that can easily, without the proper outlets of relief, lead to high level anxiety and prolonged chronic stress (= Bad AF). So why do many of us choose to COPE under these unhealthy lifestyles? I've had friends going multiple nights without sleep to finish assignments, family who forget to feed their pets in the face of huge workloads. It's shit, and You Can Do Better 👏
Why merely SURVIVE when we can THRIVE? In my experience, people who neglect exercise are moodier and not as optimistic about overcoming problems that pop up in their day. For a more functional, happier you, consider INVESTING in a physical regime that acts as your OUTLET. If you're starting out, exercise should be introduced in small steps as you're body has to adjust. I'd suggest EDUCATING yourself on basics first then getting out there, so you'll understand what you're doing and thus feel less self conscious (useful sources at the end of this). Key teaching this week is to approach the stressors in your life head-on by integrating stress-relievers. Yall need to remember, your stress makes your friends stressed too because humans be in nature, emotionally contagious. Stay stress-free live love #wednesdaywellness ~
Useful sources: Bodybuilding.com sources a variety of gym routines, adapted to different goals (weight loss, muscle gain). I used them to structure gym routines and found them super knowledgable. Next Customise a basic routine in the app Fitness and Bodybuilding (VGFIT LLC), which has basic scheduling functions. Also don't underestimate Youtube for education FTW.
