As some of you may know, it has been a stressful few weeks in our household.  One of our kiddos had corrective surgery on his elbow/arm that he broke a few years ago.  The road to recovery has not been smooth, and after several visits to Indy and another surgery yesterday, I am hoping that he can really start recovering now.  Wow, it’s not fun to see one of your children hurting!

A few times I have not been able to go to the gym, and many times I have been tempted to stay home.  But inside I know that working out may be one of the only times I get out of the house for the day, and once I am there I feel the benefits.  Exercise helps get my mind off of what is going on at home just for forty-five minutes or so, and it decreases the stress my body is feeling.  Exercise is helping prevent an emotional meltdown!  : )

I know many (all of) you have stress in your lives.  Does excercise help you?  Here’s a great article from the Mayo Clinic that expands on the benefits of excercise during stressful times.
