We can ALL get grumpy at times.
Think about the happiest and most upbeat person you know. They’re always smiling and energetic and positive and full of joy and nothing seems to get them down.
We’ve all got those friends. Beautiful people they are.
Yeah, well even they get grumpy too.
They might not show it like others but it’s not all rainbows and unicorns and frolicking in beautiful fields amongst the flowers in the countryside.
We all experience highs and lows.
I’ll own up. Things make me grumpy.
Lack of sleep. Stress at work. Arrogant people. Social media. Slow drivers. Liars. Carlton supporters. They all make me grumpy.
Tell you what else makes me grumpy….
When I miss a day of planned training I just don’t feel right.
Sometimes my main goal for the day is to exercise not because I want to get stronger or fitter or sculpt the six pack, but simply because I know I’ll feel better for it.
It’s a stress reliever. An outlet. A feel good tool.
There’s a positive link between exercise and your mood.
Exercise increases your level of endorphins which lifts your mood.
When your mood is lifted, you sleep better.
When you sleep better you’re less grumpy and more enthusiastic about tackling your day.
Exercise also increases self esteem.
Another mood lifter.
It relieves stress. Another benefit. Not to mention it combats heart disease and depression and excessive weight gain.
It increases energy and improves your skin too.
I could go on and on but at the end of the day exercising is the number one remedy for grumpy arses.
If this is you then it might be time to get off your grumpy arse and move it.
