โ€žSimply moving your body, has immediate, long-lasting and protective benefits for your brainโ€
– Wendy Suzuki, profesor of Natural Science and Psychology ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Excercise will have both a positive chemical effect on your brain ๐Ÿง  reducing stress and improving mood as well as resulting in lasting positive benefits for the brain and body!

It is scientifically proven that working out improves your mood and decreases feelings of depression, anxiety and stress ๐Ÿค—.
After a good workout session your body starts producing lots of endorphines โ€“ happy hormones ๐Ÿคฉ

You should workout 20-40 min 3-4 times a week. I know you donโ€™t feel like it, I know itโ€™sย ย hard to start ๐Ÿ˜‰. Believe me it is so hard for me to get up from a couch or desk andย workout, Iย almost never feel like it and need to force myself to do it but I ALWAYS feel soooo good afterwards โ˜บ
ย 
So, have you worked out today?ย ๐Ÿ˜‰

Little things

There is this saying, one of my favourites, โ€žNot everyday is good but there is something good in everydayโ€ and I so agree! ๐Ÿ˜Š
:::
Even though this year has been tough to all of us I am more than sure that we could find something good in all of those days! Like the color of the sky, smell of flowers or somebody being nice to you! ๐Ÿ˜Š
:::
Last 3 months have been very very tough for me, healthwise ๐Ÿค•, workwise ๐Ÿ™„, many family issues ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ, some friends let me down ๐Ÿ˜โ€ฆbelieve me, it has not been easy ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ and in the end when I was thinking that the only positive issue this year (besides my covid test 2 months ago ๐Ÿ˜œ) is my financial situation, I got half of my usual salary today ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ and even though itโ€™s all good now and itย turned out to be a mistake by somebody in HR I wonโ€™t get the missing half until January ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ€ฆ so 2020 misery goes on ๐Ÿ™„
:::
BUT! Even though itโ€™s been so tough I managed to see some good in everyday, to get excited about something every week, to be happy despite all the problems and thatโ€™s how positive mind works! ๐Ÿ˜‰
