Working out is a practice you can do for yourself to care for yourself spiritually and mentally, as well as physically. Other practices for this include being in nature, such as walking at the park or going to the beach, and meditation. Sometimes reading, dancing or a walk down any street will also center you.
Working out is especially great because you have time for yourself to use wisely in ways that will benefit you. While you work out, you love yourself and communicate silently with yourself. Ideas and solutions to problems will pop in your head. You will think easily about the future. You will feel revived and strong in every way - spiritually, mentally and physically. You will be able to work out "dark" emotions.
Do it and you will love it more and more!
