Lifting Will Make You Happier

What if you had the ability to change your thoughts and emotions simply by taking action with your body?

A long, deep belly breath could instantly shift your panic to power.

Regular strength workouts would knock out thoughts of self-doubt, and create feelings of fortitude.

After 20 years of coaching women (and over 40 years of catching myself!) I know without a doubt that your biology is DRVING every thought and emotion you have.

Yes, you most likely have some wounds left over from events in life that get some airtime as well. You are, after all, “woman” and therefore alive with emotions.

But what if you learned to take charge of your thoughts and emotions by taking action with your body? 

The caffeine that you had this morning causes cortisol to be squeezed out of your adrenal glands leaving them pooped out several hours later. Tired adrenal glands lead to low energy and less “get up and go!”. You might think you’ve become lazy in the afternoons when the truth could simply be adrenal fatigue.

Numerous studies have proven that strength training leads to feelings of personal strength. Female participants reported substantial improvements in feelings of self-esteem following consistent strength training programs.

You can literally lift your way to happiness!
