However, during tough times you can always turn to exercise. While most people stop exercising to focus on getting through their hardship, continuing to do so will make a huge positive impact on your life. The benefits to your mental health include reduced stress levels and improved perception of self. In addition, you can improve physical well-being from a continued exercise routine.
Though it seems like the last thing you want to do when times are tough, the key is to take care of yourself. By doing this, you can find balance in times of uncertainty.
