The Mental Journey of A Good Workout

It took me years to realize what working out was for me — an emotional outlet. I am an emotional person. My mom remarked that I always have to workout so hard. As if there is something wrong with that. I do workout hard. Generally so worn out afterwards that I get a headache and need rest. It takes me most of the day to recover. I’m not convinced it’s a physical recovery, but a mental one.
