Grey Days, Sunny Heart

I live in the Pacific Northwest, where we have a reputation for endless days of rain and grey skies. The joke around here is that the Seattle Rain Festival runs from January 1st to December 31st. While that is a bit extreme, we do get our fair share of not-so-enticing weather days, making us feel like we’d rather go back to bed. What’s a person to do?

Whip out a Team Beachbody DVD is the obvious answer! Any one of the collection is sure to lift your mood. And once you start moving, you might find that you’ve warmed up enough to actually go outside – in your proper rain attire. Think of adverse weather as a chance to see yourself as an exercise adventurer: how will you prepare? (Warm up!); what gear will you need? (Layers, especially a rain-proof one!); and how will you feel when you get through it? (Great, of course!).

So turn the grey doldrums into a chance to see how much YOU can bring it. You’ll start hoping for rain!
