Your head’s a mess, and your body probably is too. When you’re going through a divorce, you’re probably not so great at taking care of yourself. You’ve been so used to living as a cramped person for so long, you’ve lost touch with what it means to feel great all over.
You might think of “Fitness” as just getting your body in shape. That’s not enough.
You can get your body into the best shape of your life, but if you’re not working on your head too, then it’s very likely that you’re actually using the workouts to avoid the very real issues in your mind.
For most of us who aren’t workout freaks, it’s hard to get motivated to get physically active when bad thoughts and attitudes dominate our thinking. You can't get your workout done when your head is filled with distractions and unproductive emotions.
Getting the mind healthy is actually necessary in order to get the body healthy, you can’t just do one without the other.
Can you get your mind healthy without getting your body fit as well? Yeah, maybe, but then you’re missing out on the wonderful chemical rewards of a great workout. When you push your body to be the best it can be, your body chemistry rewards you with injections of good feelings and positive energy. This isn’t new age bullshit, it’s real science: a healthy body supports a healthy mind.
