Do you ever have one of those days you feel like your head will explode? You count to ten, twenty, and then count backwards. The next thing you do is breath slowly, intuitively, trying to find your zen place. It’s when I get to this point and know I’m having a bad day.
As a preventive measure I recognize two things I need to do to survive my foul mood. First, is lace up my sneakers and run off the excess of negative energy pulsating through my body. It’s a simple solution it clears my head, revs my metabolism, and I don’t have to worry about anything except tripping over my laces.
The second step for working out this funk is I run in places where I enjoy my surroundings, find pleasure in the way the sun shines over the lake, or watching a flock of geese fly in a perfect V. It’s these quiet moments, I regain my space, and realize there is always a remedy to every situation, even when things are out of my control.
But everything truly comes together, when I round the bend to the finish line with the comfort of my home on the horizon. I relax, happy to see the faces of my children, the stinkeye from my dog for not taking her, and revel in a refreshing glass of water. It’s after blowing off all of that steam, in the grand scheme of things the problem was never really quite that big.
