The last few days here in St. Louis have been great. It's been a warm 70 degrees. People are out walking their dogs, mowing their lawns and doing projects around their house. It seems that the winter slumber might just be over. The warm weather has really gotten me motivated to move! I notice that I want to be outside exercising. Don't get me wrong, I have hardly had the motivation to move over the last few months. It's nice that the weather has finally given me the push to put on my tennis shoes and head out the door. After a brisk walk, I feel so much better. It has gotten my blood pumping, my muscles moving and lots of fresh air for my lungs. It has also given me a boost in my mood. Exercise is a natural mood booster. It's especially better if it's a nice, sunny day. The sunlight also helps boost moods. Exercise is such an important necessity in life. So many people avoid it like the plague. It is the number one technique I recommend to people who are stressed, depressed, anxious, angry, etc. It's great for everyone no matter what their mental health issue is. So, lace up your tennis shoes and go out for a little walk. You never know, you just may feel like a million bucks!
