    I Can't Even Imagine

    I've never been one for sitting around

    and there seems to be a lot of waiting here. I'm trying to fill my time, but I need to be far more active than this! I'm going to the gym as soon as it opens, and have a good workout day. It's crucial to me to keep fit and busy looking after myself.

    Releasing Happy Hormones

    I really believe being active and outdoors releases endorphins. It is the only way to explain why I feel so much brighter and stimulated when playing tennis or cycling. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that human beings were originally very active outdoors. They didn...

    Yay Exercise!

    I am always in a better mood when I'm exercising regularly. I run 4 miles daily, and my depression (though still present) has lessened greatly. I also communicate and think more efficiently when I'm regularly active.
