What to do if a headache and stress have got you down? PIIT of course!

This weekend was a doozy. It started off going really well, but then some personal things got in the way and I ended up feeling very…bleh. Not the most descriptive term, I know, but I felt emotionally and physically drained, with a nagging headache. Instead of retreating and taking a nap (which is something I do sometimes), I pulled on my socks and shoes and picked a workout—It’s one of Blogilates’ Body tone bootcamps, but it’s pretty much PIIT28 style: 7 moves, 45 seconds each, with 15 second rest breaks in between for 4 rounds.

And I can’t forget my music, either! Music always gives some excitement to my workouts.

Whenever I feel stressed or frustrated, exercise always helps me kick the negativity away—it’s so therapeutic and I like killing two birds with one stone: as I was able to get a workout in while also physically releasing my stress. And I can’t forget hydration! Drinking enough water throughout the day can be tough, but water is so important for you! —and it also helps keep headaches away, at least for me this time!

A pretty POPFLEX water bottle to keep me hydrated! (listed under Accessories: it’s great bc it doesn’t leave a watery puddle on my desk)

What do you folks do when you’re feeling stressed?
