How to Mend a Broken Heart: Day 9
Exercise! There really is nothing better. The endorphins that even a walk will give you are amazing!
I love to go on long walks, it gives me time to think and process. I often stop and journal while walking (notes app on my phone). If I’m doing something else like riding my bike or swimming, it’s just a good time to process things and stay in my head.
I try to judge how I’m feeling and what kind of exercise will suit me best. For example, after my husband died, I ran….I was angry and hurt and confused and the intensity of running helped me process that. I also lifted weights, a lot…I had an amazing personal trainer who was a joy and light to be around. I would cry and vent and it never phased him. Pushing myself to the point of tears in the weight room just felt good. Crazy/not crazy, right?!? Now, I much prefer calmer things, a long walk, cycling, swimming, yoga. Although I still run when I NEED to!
Exercise can serve as a distraction with the added benefits of how you will feel when you’re done. You can use it as a way to get up and get out. Just move, peeps. I promise this helps. Whether your heart is broken from a death, divorce or a break up, it works! Go and sweat out the sadness….
And, as always, I’m a phone call away….the first call is ALWAYS complimentary and helping YOU build your solid foundation, find your silver linings and live a life full of gratitude is what my life purpose is all about!
Peace, LOVE and Silver Linings, peeps!
