I've come to realize that if I don't exercise, I go a little crazy. I am not exaggerating. I become stressed, easily agitated, moody, emotional. The world looks bleaker and less possible to manage. Dumb little things take on greater power than they should. I don't feel happy. But, if I can just make myself get outside and walk, walk, walk...then all of that washes away. My mood instantly changes. My spirits lift, the stress eases, the world looks brighter, manageable. Those little things roll off my shoulders and don't hang around. To go for a walk is a beautiful thing.
