A to Z Challenge - Energize

For the A to Z Challenge, my topic is leadership and goal-setting. I am posting short excerpts from my book, Overcoming Obstacles with SPUNK! The Keys to Leadership and Goal-Setting, along with an inspiring photo. Enjoy and dream big!

Energize

Do not forget to feed your physical body, either. Focus on healthy choices for your life. Exercise invigorates both body and mind, and it’s a great way to deal with stress. As your physical conditions improve, so will your self-esteem. You will feel energized and refreshed.

I've been exercising more the last few weeks and it's been working out well!

Exercise really helps to shake off the cobwebs! I've written some of my best stuff after working out!

I do water aerobics at least three days a week. I'd be a slug if I didn't.

Believe me, I need to exercise more and I know it.

Just never over do the exercise. I've got the eternal EBV which means I have to rest when there's a flare up. And when I've got my energy back, I have to gentle and low impact exercises.

Good post!

Go kitty! That reminds me. I need to spend more time exercising my fluff balls. I find it easy to excercise myself because if I don't, I don't sleep.

Excellent post. Its easy to fall into a cycle of sitting, not sleeping, and not eating right. Today I'm taking my walk. Its a 4.5 mile trek around the city lake that is invigorating form body and refreshing for the soul.

To rid myself of stress I listen to relaxation cds. There are many exercises I can't do because of health problems but I do try to keep positive.

Loved your E word post.

Hi! I love all the cat pics! Hope you are having fun with A to Z!

Well, I will say this, I wish I had the energy of a cat.

I can tell a difference in my writing when I go for long spans of time without exercising! Even a leisurely walk still does the trick! :)

I hit the gym several times a week!

I've noticed how since I've upped my workout routine, I've had more energy and drive to write. Great post.

Apart from the occasional yoga, I never exercise... I know, I should...

Perfect timing. I'm making big changes in this area at the moment.
