The other day, I posted an infographic about 12 mental benefits of exercise. But the one thing it didn’t mention is what a lift it is. I’ve had excruciatingly bad days where, after a run or a workout on the court, I feel fantastic, lifted and rejuvenated. My mood magically gets restored, and the negativity seems to be left out on the hardwood or on the road. I couldn’t agree with this one more.
