There’s a great quote that says “The cure for anything is salt water- sweat, tears or the sea” (Isak Dineson). I wholeheartedly believe that quote. Whenever I’m in a bad mood, one of those three can help bring me out of it. Whether it’s sitting down by the water in my hometown of Dartmouth, having a good cry and just getting that negative feeling out, or going for a run, I always feel at least a little better.
That’s definitely been true this week. I was definitely in an off mood early in the week, and my mother AND boyfriend insisted I needed to work out. I of course, told them I thought they was wrong and it was because I wasn’t sleeping enough. Well, as things often go- the people who knew me best were right. I broke out my old exercise bike this week and since I started riding again, I’ve been in a much better mood.
So there’s my tidbit of advice for the day…if something goes wrong, the best treatment is salt…either go have a good cry, go contemplate by the ocean, workout, or put in some “sweat equity” and get through the problem.
