Hello Monday

Tash Columbus

Hello, clean slate. 

Exercising on Mondays can get the ball rolling for your workout routine. There’s something about starting on a Monday that makes you feel like you’re off to the right start, And the idea of ‘don’t break the chain’ is really powerful. This philosophy, can motivate you to exercise on Tuesday, Wednesday or whenever you pencil in your next workout

1. You’re more likely to work out the rest of the week.

2. You’ll smile more.

Got a case of the Mondays? You’re not alone. Research shows that the average office worker doesn’t crack a smile until 11:16 a.m. But exercise could help you beat those Monday blues. One common benefit of physical exercise is that it releases endorphins, the hormones that make you feel happier. Nothing feels as great as a finished workout, right? And science backs us up.

3. You’ll quell anxious thoughts.

Dreading that mountain of paperwork gathering dust on your desk over the weekend? It’s not uncommon to feel apprehensive about heading in to work. But don’t go hiding back under the covers just yet — you may want to hop into a class with us or get outside and get moving, as Studies show that aerobic exercise can lessen general anxiety. Plus, high-intensity exercise has been shown to reduce anxiety sensitivity, or the fear of anxiety that is often a precursor to panic attacks.

At #teamtash our main focus is to exercise because we love our bodies not to punish them for something we ate (or if  you’re not just at the place yet, don’t worry we will help get you there) and for our mental health, anything else that happens along the way, like weight loss, strength and fitness gains, we look at as a positive side effect.
