I needed this so badly yesterday:
Some days are just hard. Being under-employed can feel like a burden instead of a blessing – too much time to think, and thinking about sad things like getting older can lead to feeling like I’m not doing enough with my life. Feeling like I’m not doing enough with my life can lead to thinking that I’m wasting my life. Thinking about wasting my life can make me feel like life is moving really fast and I’m not going to get to see and do everything I want to unless I go go go but I’ve already wasted so much time, so is there even a point?
When I finally pulled my head out from within myself and made it to the gym, I felt like a million-billion-gagillion bucks. And this, my friends, why working out in the morning is vital – you can alleviate feeling like anything less than priceless early on.
