You may have heard of the postworkout mood lift, but did you know that there is a link between exercise and having a brighter outlook? Healthy behaviors such as exercise perpetuate into more healthy behaviors. Because you have a more hopeful outlook, you will want to hydrate more, fuel your body with the right foods, and spend more time focusing on self-care, whether that's treating yourself to a pedicure, doing a weekly facemask, or spending quiet time with God. Our body, mind, and spirit are all linked together. If one part is lacking, we can feel off balance and have a negative outlook.
The bottom line? Just start moving; it could be five minutes to start, a brisk 10-minute walk, taking an exercise or yoga class. Just start, and you will have a brighter outlook in no time.
