Don’t think about too much; look around, notice your surroundings, take some deep breaths and walk it out. Occasionally, if I know I have a particularly stressful conversation coming up with someone, I will invite them to walk with me while we talk it out. It is amazing how much mental clarity I can keep when I walk and talk.
Jesse Owens, an Olympic athlete, said, “If we walk long enough and talk long enough, we might come to understand one another.”
If walking is not your thing, find an exercise you enjoy, whether it is cycling, hiking, swimming or even dancing in your front room. Exercise helps you take control of stress, it boosts self-esteem and confidence, it improves sleep, makes it easier to unwind and helps you feel better overall.
