It can be hard to motivate yourself to get up and work out, but doing something athletic releases endorphins (good chemicals) in your brain that make you feel good. So exercise is scientifically proven to be good for your body and mind.

Exercise doesn’t have to be some big intense routine – you could just go for a jog around a park, or even do some press ups or sit ups in your living room, while you’re watching TV.

If you really want to go for it, you could join a gym, or work with a personal trainer for some extra motivation or help with what to do. Or you could simply find a friend to exercise with, and talk with them as you’re getting your sweat on.

Physical exercise can be a good way of dealing with aggression if you find yourself feeling angry. Keeping a regular workout schedule can also help give you some structure if you’re feeling overwhelmed with life.
