Ever noticed that you can’t stay away from the chip bowl when you’re stressed? That’s because your body craves a calming experience, which is why those chips go from being appealing to downright irresistible. The good news, for those who care to hear it, is that you can get your endorphin-high through exercise. Hit the gym. Hit the road. Or just hit someone – the ensuing chase should help your body release its stressors. #NationalNutritionWeek
Working out can get boring. The same old push-ups, squats, planks, yada yada. Plus it’s pretty much useless in the real world. Unlikely that someone will spot you to raise 250 lbs. or require you to perform a plank. What you need is to bring the circus to your workouts. No, not clowning around, just challenging your body while making working out fun.
