Let's face it. This life is filled with stressful things. Minor stresses are part of every day life. Major stresses also creep up now and then. For me, if I don't exercise my way through it, I really feel it adding up.
Lately, my favorite things to do to work through stress include running, dancing, and martial arts. I need to run because I am running a marathon and I have to train. But there is nothing more satisfying than a spontaneous round of front snap kicks or some energetic dancing in my kitchen.
If I don't do this, I know that unmanaged stress can lead to all sorts of health problems.
