I had lunch with with one of my sweet mentors last week and she asked how I have time for myself because I’m typically on the go all the time. My answer: All I need is my Jesus time and my sweat time. Those are my stress relievers and “me time.”
My workouts help me escape for 20-40 minutes. Currently, I have lots things on my plate accompanied by a decent amount of stress.
Today’s workout was a milestone for me. It was my first emotional workout.
In the middle of the work out I just stopped and let it go. Caught my breath and pressed play again.
In my spiritual walk I tell myself, “If God carried me get through that struggle, he can help me through this. He’s got this under control.”
In my physical journey I tell myself, “If I can get through this rep, I can do the next. I’m strong enough to do this.”
This is how I keep my sanity.
