In case you haven’t seen it yet, this is a really poignant short film. On the surface it’s about exercise, but it’s really about so much more. Many like myself find exercise important for a number of reasons like discipline, motivation, overall health–but one aspect of exercise that sometimes gets overlooked is its therapeutic power. If I’m ever having a bad day, all I need to do is hit the gym and in most cases I feel better. It gives me time, a place, and a reason to think about something else.
