We've all heard about the physical benefits of exercise. But what I've recently discovered personally the mental and psychological benefits of regularly working out. I had a very hectic work schedule these past couple of months, causing me to skip my regularly exercise routine. Little by little, I found that I became grumpier, more exhausted, and generally less productive. I actually felt depressed. Luckily, I was able to tweak my work schedule and get back on my regular workout routine. Now, I definitely feel lighter, more relaxed, and happier! With that in mind, I will never sacrifice working out for work again.
