Start Exercising

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head
BJ Thomas 
Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'
So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'
But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me

It was raining cats and dogs when I woke up this morning. I'm sure people are happy that it finally rains at the right time, on a Saturday morning which gives them the opportunity to tuck in a little longer in bed. Don't know why but it reminds me of the song above. 
Yesterday, while I was on my way to work, the radio newscaster reported that Malaysian Meteorological Department foresees that there will be flood in the upcoming weeks due to the monsoon season. So, to all my readers, always remember to bring your umbrella with you J
Time flies. It's already mid October. I'm finally determined enough to restore my jogging routine after a long hiatus. Some says that exercising is a way to release tension and stress. I did a little research and found out that it's true.
Exercise can decrease 'stress hormones' like cortisol, and increase endorphins, your body's 'feel-good' chemicals, giving your mood a natural boost.

So what are you waiting for? Start incorporating exercise in your daily life! I have experienced it myself. I thought I will feel tired after exercising but the truth is that I felt more energetic and calm after it. I know most of us have a busy schedule, but stop finding excuses of not exercising. You need to start allocating a part of your time for the day to exercise.

One of my ex boss used to share her marathon experience with me. Despite being exhausted, it all boils down to how determine you are to push further. I can easily relate this to life. We cannot be lazy and should constantly push ourselves to accomplish more things. You might get the additional boost from your family and friends. But you got to first do your own part.
