Since I discovered the benefits of working out, it has substantially changed my life. I found that I have more energy to pursue my day-to-day goals, it has helped me manage the stress that accompanies life, and it helped me enjoy more of the beauty that life provides. Before I got into the workout business, the general stresses of life had a way of just draining me emotionally. For example, sometimes I could feel so emotionally fatigued that I became less productive, as well as felt a sense of displeasure. Working out never stimulated my interest. I never imagined it would help relieve emotional stress. Physical exercise was a lost cause until a friend educated me on the health benefits. I heeded his life-changing advice and began to make small efforts to exercise. From that moment, I found physical exercise psychologically nourishing; it gave me more strength and energy to tackle the stressful business of living.
