Do you ever have those days where mentally you are challenged all day long — you tackle big projects at work, come home and work on other mentally challenging projects — but still go to bed feeling like your day wasn’t complete?
That was me yesterday.
Because of an ice storm I was cooped up in the house all day. During the day, I cranked on a bunch of my big work projects. I was super productive and got a lot done.
I accomplished a lot.
But during the day I probably left my desk for a total of an hour tops. In an entire day! That’s terrible! And I had zero physical activity, unless you count walking up and down the steps to get from my bedroom to the kitchen for food.
Instead of being proud of everything I accomplished during the day, I went to bed feeling lazy for not carving out some time for movement.
Days like yesterday serve as a reminder that no matter what I accomplish, it’s my workouts that leave me feeling most satisfied at the end of the day. Getting things done is important, but not more important than my health and wellness.
